Grant on The Mike Smyth Show: LNG Canada debate, Income-based traffic fines, & Two drinks a week!

“Would income-based traffic fines be an effective solution to tackling driving offences?”

“The police aren’t going to know roadside what your income is, unless suddenly they have access to their computers, to your annual tax return from the year before…If the fines were meant to be a deterrent, there would still be no points for using electronics…”

“If they brought a system in like this… Do you think police officers would think to pull over high-end cars to generate a higher fine?”

“I’m sure some would… I don’t think most would. But like with anything, I’m sure there are some officers our there that would salivate at that opportunity. But again, how would it even be implemented? I don’t care about what other countries do because there needs to be a lot more digging as to what the rules are over there in other countries.”
