Renforth Drive, Etobicoke, Ontario
Every week, if not every other day, there is a speed trap located at Centennial Park, Renforth Drive. The officer is hidden either behind a tree on the sidewalk or in a patrol car on the side of the church, next to Centennial Square (It’s almost on the same property as Centennial Park).
The speed limit is 40 kilometers. That is because, the police/municipal government say there are schools in the area. While there are schools in the area, the 40 k limit can be changed while school is out during the summer, but they won’t do this because this area is a what we call a “cash cow”. It is four lanes and it is very difficult to stay at 40 k when the road is not busy, school is out and the park is nearly empty. In some parts of the city, in school areas, the speed limit has been adjusted when school is out or example speed is changed to 50 or 60 kilometers after hours. I brought this to the attention of my councilor in my area and he shrugged it off by saying that is what the residents want (hogwash!).
