LETTER: Unsafe passers need surprises

In 2002 the premier who did not like photo radar removed photo radar in BC to get votes from the speeders and risky drivers.

In 2002 the premier who did not like photo radar removed photo radar in BC to get votes from speeders and risky drivers and sold all the grey vans off we used to see policing the speeds and giving a message to drivers to slow down and obey the speeds on BC highways.

Now the double solid lines mean nothing and many drivers pass when it is unsafe and thumb their noses at the double solid lines. On the North Shore there will be some injuries or deaths is there is not some action by the local policing authority to set up some surprises for people who endanger others by not following the posted speed signs and pass on double solid lines. Surely there is still motivation for accident prevention in out traffic safety system
