NEWS - BC to Follow Montana's Example
Todd Stone, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, made a surprise announcement today concerning speed limits on BC's freeways. Effective one month from today they will be removed entirely during the daytime. Like Montana, drivers will be required to drive at a speed that is reasonable and prudent in the circumstances.
The only caveat for this change in law will apply to drivers who fail to keep to the right. Due to ICBC's current debt problems, drivers using the left lane that fail to move over will not receive any insurance coverage if they are rear ended. Loof Lirpa, spokesperson for claims, reports that the corporation is considering making those drivers automatically responsible for the collision and that they can expect to lose their safe driving discount for life.
Dev Null manages government affairs for the group C.E.N.T.S. She is ecstatic with the coming change. "Carbon tax be damned" she said, "if I want to pay for increased greenhouse gas emissions caused by high speeds, that's my choice and a price I'll gladly pay!"
