1.3 people in a car is overly generous. I'm willing to bet rush hour average is less than 1.1.
...actually per Gil Meslin on Twitter, it's 1.1 or less recently:
Regardless what is done down the road, there will be driver who think nothing about a ticket since they have the money to deal with them in the first place.
I have no issue with it, but it should kick in after the 2nd offense, since some maybe out of towner's and some of those signs are hard to read at night. If everything is LED, then points lost on first ticket.And that is the beauty of the two demerit points in addition to the fines... Write all the cheques you want, but your license will quickly get pulled and then steeper penalties can kick in.

A 22-year-old Norwegian student has been handed a 250,000-kroner ($30,400) fine for drunken driving – but can still count herself lucky.
Katharina G. Andresen is reportedly Norway’s richest woman, with a fortune estimated by Forbes at $1.23 billion.
Fines for drunken driving in Norway are based on the defendant’s income. Newspaper Finansavisen reported that Oslo City Court said the penalty could have been up to 40 million kroner ($4.9 million) if based on Andresen’s assets, but they “have not yielded any dividend yet” and she has no fixed income. The court did increase the fine because of her estimated wealth, however.
That's for cars "entering Toronto". Does that mean the downtown core? Or the 416-905 boundary? I would expect more multi-passenger usage in the core to defray the cost of parking.
I've shared your observation in the three times I've been down and through there this week (just headed down again now), but reports vary wildly. No matter what the actual number, it's far too many.I biked a good stretch of it yesterday, and literally every single driver I pulled up to at a stoplight where they aren't permitted to proceed straight through did exactly that. Saw one cop along the entire stretch (though obviously that was the weekend).
Green arrowJust a general question about the use of a Right-Turn Green Arrow. I was wondering if it has different meanings depending on the municipality? I was in Windsor over the summer and I noticed that they used them to represent the movements that cars were allowed to travel, similar to some ideas suggested here, since the pedestrian walk signal turns green at the same time. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures, but it was definitely a shock to see it for the first time.
I see you know as much about the Law as Ford does. You make a good point, just not the one you think.And I agree with Doug Ford on the demerit point issue. How is this a danger to safety as a moving violation? This is a by-law. Not an HTA infraction.
Been discussed in detail time and again in this forum.Can someone give specific examples and pictures of these "Transit Malls" that seem to be talking points being passed around?.
Well - the Sun have spoken .
