Starting on July 6th no demerit points will be added if you are caught by Toronto’s speed cameras, only a fine will apply. So If you are the owner of a Ferrari and you have some wealth, will you care if you have to pay a $600 fine? Likely not. But the owner of a beat-up, old, economy car will likely feel the pinch. This is the problem.

It is not like the politicians in Toronto are not aware of the discrepancy, but do they have a reasonable explanation why it exists? Are the news media independent enough to raise this question?

Since demerit points may be the only way to affect rich drivers, is there some way to apply demerit points to owners? Perhaps this could influence those owners to be more judicious about who drives their vehicle. If not, congratulations to all you rich people, you won the traffic lottery!
