Isn’t there a law or something?

This weekend, I was on a highway near MontrĂ©al, and I saw something that I had never seen before, and at first I didn’t recognize. I saw two cars racing. On the highway.

Now I could be wrong about this, and maybe it was in Ontario, but wasn’t there a law recently passed about racing? One with terrible consequences for transgressors, like being shot on sight by the police or something?

Anyway, they didn’t crash and kill us all, so I guess that’s a relatively happy ending to the story, although it would have been better if justice were done upon them somehow.

In somewhat related news, I drove a car with standard transmission this weekend. It wasn’t too bad.

  1. I think for driving >50KM over the speed limit, they can fine you up to $10,000, you get 6 demerit points, and they take your car away, leaving you stranded on the side of the road.

    Then they shoot you in the face.
