Yeah, I have to say - the pedantic speed enforcement on functionally industrial roads like Burlington street speaks volumes about police priorities.

The only reason to put speed traps there is because they're locations that drivers feel they can go fast because it's visibly _safe_ to do so. In other words, they're good places for a speed trap because they're money-makers.

Places where there are actually real dangers associated with speeding (like the King/Main corridor, or Queen street) seem to be bereft of speeding enforcement.

Oh, and as for the Steelcare/Transcare trucks, keep in mind that Steelcare has a major transloading facility & warehouse at the Aberdeen&Longwood rail-yard, where steel gets taken off of rail and loaded onto trucks. So not all those trucks you see coming out of the West end are coming from the expressway. Not that it really changes things - that location has access to the 403 going in both directions (up to the Linc and around the Bay).
