Safer roads started this petition to The Government of Canada
  • Policing for profit has grown exponentially in past years across North America. Being a police officer used to mean something, now they are just there do force commuters to pay a hidden "tax". Enough is enough, it's time for a change.

This hidden tax affects every motorist and there is absolutely no need. Drivers should not need to spend half the drive making sure they do not enter the "ticketable" speed range. Motorists eyes need to be on the road in flowing traffic, not scanning the side of the road for hidden cops that are no longer visibly marked. Often police even use illegal tactics to try to nail as many people as possible in order to fill quotas in order to keep their jobs. 

When did serve and protect become serve fines and ruin lives. Often the police will even cause traffic jams by passers by slamming on the breaks when they see a bunch of cops writing out their tickets.  

Every year police stations make more and more money to employ more and more officers and all these guys do all day is give tickets. If you agree with me please share this petition to raise awareness of the issue and maybe just maybe put a little pressure on our polititions to make a change. The people of Canada don't need to pay insane fines while commuting to and from their jobs. They don't need traffic to be slowed down by terrified drivers. Canadians should be free to travel where they want, when they want without having to worry about getting insane fines around every Bend in the road of behind every overpass. 

 

Again please pass on the word if you've gotten a fine for simply commuting.
