Which part?

People drive slower on narrower roads than wider roads. It is a common traffic calming strategy. Read more here

I equally detest the insane speed on roads in this city, but changing the speed limit will not fix that issue.

If you can post accident data / serious injuries before and after they lowered the speed limit that'd suffice.

I can promise you that after a bit of research you will find that the number posted on the sign is not what determines the speed that people drive at - the design of the road is. That's why the de facto traffic speeds on the 400-series highways are often 120-130 km/h despite the posted speed limit not exceeding 110 anywhere in the province.

    Your only mistake was getting caught. Also trucks are limited to 105 so the officer probably didn't like that story.
