Leap of Logic Award

If people are going to race on Ontario's expressways, why in the world does the Toronto Star, the city of Hamilton's police chief and some safety group think photo radar will stop it?
I travelled more than 300 miles on Highways 401 and 416 this weekend. There were plenty of police vehicles and speed traps. Photo radar was just another type of speed trap. And if people are going to do something as stupid as street racing on Highway 400, do you think the chance they might get a speeding ticket will be any deterrent?

Update: The idea's already dead. Even Ontario's tax-hungry premier admits it's a non-starter.
