For years I have requested the City of Richmond address speeding on Steveston Highway, to absolutely no avail.
It is officially 50 km/hr, yet well over 80 per cent of all drivers go 80 to 90 km/hr.
I have repeatedly requested our RCMP position one or two cruisers to slow it down — no can do.
If a ticket is $80 per infraction, that would make it $128,000/day, or $47 million/year (give or take).
Let’s say two officers make $200,000 combined. Thus, outlay would be $200,000 with a return of $46-47 million.
Seems to be a very good return on investment.
