    Be interesting to know if there were any urban residential speeding fines in Picton or if they were all on Hwy.62. In particular Paul St where the speed from Main to Queen is insane.

    Its nice to see the OPP publishing what they do. How about speeding ticket numbers, falling to stop at a stop light sign and other ticket offenses. My favorite, tail gating. I would like to know how many tickets monthly are issued for this offence because here in the county it is terrible. The 401 is worse 120 k per hour look in your rear view mirror at the car behind you and all you see is the top of the cars dash board and the drivers head.
