Now, there was living proof that it is possible to drive 150Kms/Hr down Springfield, Kingsandman!

I actually can't wait until the snow is all gone to be able to be outside and video some of the absolute nutcases that speed down Springfield, and I will post them for all to see!

Nice of you to think of me again Ferri! :smt023

I guess when the filming conditions are just right you could, umm, call a cab!
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

I'll do it. For a fee.
Hey! With a video how will you be able to check his speed?

Yes, I am sure there are a few old timers that speed and don't even care, or maybe they are just not aware of their speed! :1422:
In Ontario, it appears to be younger male drivers collecting tickets, much like what is going to be happening around here when the Crackdown starts!

There are nut cases all over Kelowna. Speeding isn't specific to Springfield by any means.

You just notice it because obviously you live in the vicinity. (not on Springfield as you made a point of mentioning)

I used to live on Gordon Drive and there was a person on a crotch rocket that flew through the 50kph zone doing more like 160kph and on a very regular basis.

So fast in fact that I never could get a read of his plate.

I won't need to check their speed!
It's a 50km/Hr zone!

ALso....... Speed = Distance Travelled per given time!

Your good at Math BriTer, figure it out! :200:

The Police and Mayor can deal with checking the speed after they see the Video's!

The kids on their crotch rockets go down to Gordon and speed up to 200Kms/Hr and the Police watch and try to catch them.
The bikers actually like the thrill of the chase and want the Cops to try to catch them, sometimes they do wheelies at 150 Kms/Hr.

I always take Binoculars when I walk, that way I can zoom in on the plate even from a couple blocks away.

Use your binoculars to count the number of revolutions a wheel will make at 150kmh between lamposts. :)

I LOVE IT! i saw the article and the first person i thought of was struts. thought i'd post it , came to the forums, and what do you know? glad you're thinking of me struts, but what are you going to do now? should we put a backwards hat on the old boy? i hope he had some classic 50's tunes cranked on his boomin system, wouldn't want the youngsters feeling left out!
