VIEWPOINT - Enforcement Should Target High Crash Locations
Just perused an interesting map, it shows the location of crashes in our area. We have a difference of opinion as to the RCMP and their use of speed traps and were both entitled to this and I always respect others opinions. What would be interesting is, if we were to put an overly of a map of where the RCMP regularly set up their speed traps over the high frequency accident map and see if your correct when you say they target high accident areas.
I mentioned to you about one of their favourite spots in my area where I drive by quite often (The approach into West Kelowna off the Coquihalla Connector past the sawmill down the hill and into a new speed zone.) From my observations and the conversations I have had with other folks in our area this is the most common place the RCMP set up.
What is worth noting about this is there is not a flag to be found in this area on the accident map.
Just thought I would get your comment.
