Canada: The worst place in the world for riding sportsbikes?

Ride fast in Canada and you're a criminal 'street racer.' Even if you're riding alone!

According to a report on, Canada may now be the worst place in the world for riding fast motorcycles. According to a new law, if you’re caught at 50km/h or more above the speed limit, it will be considered that you were ‘street racing’ and you’ll be fined Canadian $10,000 (about US$9,300) and you could get up to six months in jail. You could also have your bike impounded and your driver’s license taken away from you.

To milk this new law for all it is worth, the Canadian government proposes to hire an additional 50 traffic policemen and even buy a new airplane for speed surveillance. Get the full report here.
