I haven't driven through eastern Canada in years, so maybe it's changed. I wouldn't count on it, though.
Who down wit OPP!!
It depends. If traffic is flowing at 120kmh and you're in the right lane moving along with it, you're generally safe. They aren't THAT bad..they do usually understand that situation is a good thing and they don't generally bother picking people off. However, if it's wide open and you're doing 140kmh, you're done. And remember if you're doing 50kmh or more over the posted speed limit, they'll impound your car for 7 days and you pick up a criminal charge.
I don't think they're using the plane anymore..I never see it these days.
For the most part, traffic flows at 120kmh and if you can control yourself, sit in the right lane and pass at 125kmh and you should not get a ticket.
Cowboy cops notwithstanding...
