You paid what?! for your vanity plates?
While most of us roll around in our cars with regular license plates, some choose to purchase vanity plates for a variety of reasons. HER DB9 for the lady in her Aston Martin, THX MOM for the new college grad in her (paid off) BMW. Vanity plates aren’t too expensive here so you do see them quite often, but over in the land of excess vanity plates are a bit different. Check out the thread to how much you need to pay for a license plate that says “1” on it. Insane!

Thanks for the reminder re: School Zones
A forum member thanked us for posting a reminder that the new school year has started and as a result the hundreds of school zones across the province (and country really) are now back in effect. The thread quickly turned into a debate on whether or not playground zones and school zones are effective. What people on both sides of the argument forgot is that reduced speed zones and proper parenting are not mutually exclusive. Why can’t we have both?

MP Introduces Private Member Bill to Limit Vehicles to 150 km/hr (93 mph)
Bill C-568 is aimed squarely at car enthusiasts. The bill if passed will make it illegal to operate, import, sell, lease, or purchase a vehicle if it is not equipped with a speed limiter set to 150 km/h. It would also be illegal to remove or disabled the limiter. Emergency vehicles however would be exempt from this new law. It obviously will not make it past the first reading (if it even gets there) as it currently does not have much support (gee I wonder why?).
