Highway is "Aircraft Patrolled" - Has anyone actually been caught by this?
I drive on Major Mackenzie drive a lot and I always see these signs and I never get around to asking, but has anyone actually been caught by a plane/chopper? I'm assuming it'd have to be during the day, relatively clear skies and have enough time to radio officers waiting on the ground, but let's assuming this was the case. How would they get on your car? Super duper radar/laser? And if you go to court, the pilot, officer in plane and guy on ground needs to show up in court?
How fast would you need to be going in order to justify the cost? I'm also assuming those planes are reserved for 150km/h+ speeders where the revenue for the province would be high? As well, the OPP says they only have 1 or 2 of these planes (as per news broadcasts during "blitz weekends"). Okay so my question: is that sign just an idle threat?
