>90KPH on Highway 1 (55 for burgers)
Seriously? BC has 120 zones, this is a joke
>>
>>19276499
Dude, the highways up north should just be no speed limit. They are arrow straight and there is fuck all anything up there, ever
>>
>>19276506
The road between Toronto and Thunder has been fairly hilly with some fog and nice scenery, thus far. Speed limit should be at LEAST 110 though. I'm dreading everything between Manitoba and Calgary, I might die of boredom. It should be an autobahn.
>>
>>19276499
Where the fuck does BC have 120 zones. Highway 1 never goes above 90 in any zone that isn't in the middle of nowhere
>>
>>19276499
Speed limits in North America are a joke but on the other hand radar detectors are fully legal. It's a good trade-off.

You people are fucking retards when it comes to driving. You don't deserve higher limits.

>>19276506
There's 2000lb moose and 500+lb bears. You don't want to be hitting one of those at 150k though you're probably fucked at 100km/h too..
>>
Probably because of moose

>NA fags will never experience the joy of weaving between semi trucks while you are doing 160 on your way to Germany via A4 highway
I pity you
>>
>>19277162
Nah, dykes and queers.
>>
>>19277165
That's a pretty normal thing on Canadian highways. The right lane is usually doing 140 on a good day. Worth it when you're forced to drive 80hp diesels? Nah.
>>
>>19277165
Otw to germany? So youre coming from eindhoven or something?

Autosnelweg has strict 130kmh limit enforced by camera and they call the germans nazis

Is Doug Ford committed to addressing this atrocity?

My burgerstate started upping the speed limits on a test basis and determined that it didn't really have any effect at all on accidents and fatalities or anything. So they started rolling out more and more higher speed limit zones
>wtf government is actually doing something that doesn't just fuck me over?
It was like opposite day on a permanent basis
>>
>>19277197
I used to drive through autobahn construction at 100kmh in traffic i was that good. All the germans were in the right lane, one time one of them honked but it was probably an american
>>
>>19277160
120 is too slow for this highway in the summer, even the coquihalla patrol/RCMP move at around 150
>>
>>19277207
I've heard rumors of people going from Calgary To Van in under 6 hours back in the 90's. Fuck that would be a blast.
>>
>>19277198
>Is Doug Ford committed to addressing this atrocity?

I doubt it. only the old people vote in canada and higher speed limits are anathema to them.

>>19277207
>120 is too slow for this highway in the summer, even the coquihalla patrol/RCMP move at around 150

Not saying that 120 is bad and that it shouldn't be higher, that article is just the best info I could find confirming the speed limit.
>>
>>19277236
That's bullshit. Out west where there's literally fucking nothing (or even in West Virgina where it's full of hill and the roads are complete garbage) they put the limit up at 85MPH (140km/hr ish) and so all these huge trucks and wiggle wagons and everything are blasting around close to 100MPH (160km/hr ish) on little two lane roads in the middle of nowhere.

It's pretty nuts if you've ever piloted some huge thing blowing by a truck like a foot away with a differential speed and all the wind of close to 300km/hr. You pretty much just have to hope and pray the other guy has taken enough trucker pills and isn't getting blown off and nobody's tires are about to explode. And then do that all day long.

I think the Australians have the right idea with that madness road through the middle of the desert.
>>
>>19277236
I mean, 120 is pretty standard for highway roads in most places. 120-130 is pretty much perfect in 90% of the world.
>>
>>19277198
Doug Ford doesn't have much of a party platform, which is basically just "vote for me, at least I'm not a leftist"
>>
>>19277160
not highway 1

Thats a strong platform nowadays

literally everyone in Ontario goes 10 over in the city and 20 over on the highway, the cops have outright stated they're not going to raise the limit because everybody goes that speed anyway
>>
>>19278092
This is kind of a kick in the face to younger drivers, as their insurance rates would moon on a 20 over on the chance a cop does pull them over
>>
>>19279682
Maybe they shouldn't speed?
>>
>>19279682
im so glad that tickets are not paired to insurance premiums in BC.
>>
>>19279720
That would be a death knell for all the yellow driving.
>>
>>19279714
Are you from canada? Its common courtesy here to go 10 over in 40~60 zones and 20 over on 70+ zones, hell cops will go 30-40 over on the highway

>americans are only allowed to go 55 kph when visiting canada
>>
>>19280005
Nah it's similar in a lot of the US. In and around my area cops leave you alone on the highway if you don't break 15 over or drive like a jackass.

Of course they speed past that when making their rounds since otherwise they wouldn't notice the problem cases as easily and it's usually a good way to get a ticket for being a moron if you pass a cop since they usually only go slow if they're off duty or trying to act like a pace car to keep things in check. Not a bad system all things considered, and more than once I've seen a cop fly up out of nowhere to harass somebody who maybe wasn't speeding as hard as everybody else but who was driving in a dangerous or suspicious fashion.
>>
>>19276499
Yeah and texas and utah have 140kph zones
so what?
>>
>>19276499
Even Hick Brunswick has 110 zones lol.

To be fair northern Ontario can be a treacherous drive and there are tons of deer so you have to be extra alert. 90 makes sense for that stretch.
>>
>>19280068
And in Ontario, sometimes that one bridge that allows you to drive from one end of Canada to the other collapses because it was designed by women, and then traffic has to be routed through the US to get the job done like a man would.
>>
>>19276499
Ontario is one of the worst provinces.
>>
Why does this 55mph myth still survive?
>>
>>19280300
The myth that 90 km/h is equal to 55 mph?
Not really a myth, I guess it's actually closer to 56 mph
>>
>>19280823
That's why Canada never thrived the way the US did. It was the adoption of the metric system rather than keeping with the Crown's Measurements. The cars just weren't efficient enough anymore.

I do the ~4hr between Ottawa and Algonquin Park around twice a month, and I can safely say that the only problem is that its mostly one-lane roads. There are a lot of places where I really wouldnt want to catch someone coming too fast out of a corner, and I've had plenty of night-time close calls with bears and deer. It gets dark as fuck and I can easily outrun my shitty headlights, so I tend to stick to the limit. That said, during the day I usually roll around 120 and just slow down for the corners.
