IT WAS NOT THE FACT that the car in front of me was driving faster than 30km/h in the school zone on Summit. Drivers can often and inadvertently find themselves going 50 in a school zone, which is why reminders are a must.
What irked me was seeing what happened after. As soon as a bunch of kids and their parents crossed, and while the light was still red, the driver took off, going full speed through the rest of the school zone.
A case for a hefty fine indeed. I wish there were a well concealed cop car at every school zone in town. Appropriately large fines could go to the food bank or towards the needs of that respective school.
A few months ago, I watched a video depicting what happens when a car goes 40km/h versus 30km/h and hitting a pedestrian. The 10 kilometers per hour makes the difference between life and death.
