Radar on 400 North

For what it is worth, I have never seen as much speed enforcement on hwy 400 from hwy 7 to hwy 9 (I commute that run almsot every day) as I have in the last week or so. On top of that, they are not in the obvious spots.. I have seen them on the northbound weigh station, north of King road, north of Major Mac, on top of the hill (where the radar tower is) just past the same hill.

There really must be some kind of campaign on or something so keep an eye out!

2015 DL1000 New July 2015 200,000+ km, 125,000 miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

I work closely with a number of the Simcoe County and York Region OPP. They're on a rotating speed blitz of all the area highways. Part of it is to introduce and test the new OPP helicopter for speed enforcement. They should be done mid-August.

I've slowed down to 110 kph since I see at least 3 people per night pulled over by the OPP between Barrie and Toronto.

The tow trucks are always close by.....

How nasty are they getting? 120 km/h isn't normally a problem, IMO. Are they pulling anyone over going 110-120?

I doubt they'd bother at 120 unless there were other issues.

From what I've seen in the past you are safe up to 120, sometimes up to 140. I think the best is to make sure you aren't the fasted out there.
