Well, in other countries, such as Australia, the UK and France, the police do routinely ticket people for going 10kmh over the speed limit.

Australians seem to be particularly strict in enforcing the speed limit.

In Ontario the police seem to have a tacit agreement with motorists (at least as regards freeways): we'll pretend 100kmh is a reasonable limit since it sounds responsible, but the de facto limit will be 120kmh.

I don't know any other place where there is such a gap between the posted speed and the average speed people drive. I do think that 100kmh is too slow for a freeway like the 400 series, they should raise it to something more reasonable like 120 or 130 (110 during rain and snow) and enforce strictly.

School zones should be 30 and enforced strictly, like in Western Canada.
