Dear Editor,

There is nothing that I pay that is less expensive than my plate sticker.

If the Ford Government goes ahead with this plan, we have not only lost those revenues, but also the revenues from driving offenses. Our law enforcement will give out tickets and people will use them for toilet paper.

I guess all the people who received tickets in Ottawa are laughing all the way to the bank! How will we go about collecting this money? Every person who shouldn’t be driving due to traffic violations will be able to drive, that’s the dangerous issue!

Today, people who offend cannot get their sticker until fines are paid. These are the checks and balances that help to keep our highways safe. When this passes, no one will be safe, and if you are hoping the person who caused an accident has insurance, good luck!! That is a whole other ballgame.

This stunt is so blatant, it’s a joke, clearly, someone thinks we are all stupid.

Just my opinion, and it wouldn’t matter which political party chose this, I would have the same opinion.

Margaret Hamelin
