Petition to Revise Street Racing Legislation

Yes , another petition.
I received this from Dave Mathers ( St Thomas Dragway ) tonight. Not sure who started it. I havn't checked out the links yet but will look later. ( burnt out right now.)
Here is the cut / paste of the e-mail below.

Need some help from my friends....please sign our petition

Petition to Revise Street Racing Legislation

Some of you may be aware, some not so aware, but last September the Ontario Government passed Bill 203 into law now called Ontario regulation 455/07, or better known as the Anti-Street racing legislation. The premise was to crack down on street racing by posing harsher penalties. Although the intention is pure, the premise it was lobbied on was not. The true fact is, this legislation was lobbied under false pretence under the guise of safety for all. The public was lead to believe that "street racers" ( at the time profiled as any car enthusiast according to Attorney General Bryant) are a gross danger to the motoring public and must be cracked down on or eliminated all together. Road safety is always a good thing, but existing rules under the existing hi-way traffic act can effectively deter speeders and aggressive drivers if properly enforced and issued, the new law effectively was not needed. The new law not only targets speeders traveling 50 kph over the posted limit under one portion of the law, but can target any and all motorists for various other infractions that are for lack of a better terms left to the judgment of an officer, under the rest of the law. Based on what an officer claims he sees you do, he can effectively at the side of the road seize your vehicle and suspend your drivers license for 7 days. The vehicle is sent to impound and all towing and impound fees paid out at the owners expense (this includes vehicles loaned to a friend). This law does not just target speeders, it has a very wide blanket, with a great deal of gray area. If you think it can't happen to you, think again. A simple failing to yield the right of way could land your car in the impound, you sitting on your butt for the week at home, and in court trying to defend a $2,000 - $10,000 fine! Even if proven innocent later in a court of law, there is no recourse for compensation to reimburse for towing or impound, you are stuck with those costs!! Basically an automatic $1000 fine before being proven guilty, is this not too much power for a police officer at the side of the road? It is the Car Enthusiasts who immediately saw this law for what it could become (years of being profiled and unjustly pulled over), the general public was and still is under the impression that the law will not effect them. Considering over 4500 people have to date been charged under the new street racing law, with a fraction of a percentage being charged actual car enthusiasts, its pretty clear this law has become more of a cash grab with a gross violation of our civil rights, then it is a law to make us safe.

The attached petition asks for support to ask the Ontario Government to remove the seizure and license suspension portions of the new Street racing legislation, but keep the fine amounts and infractions the same. It is something that effects all of us, not just the so called street racers. The streets Must be safe....but they must also be fair!

Details of Regulation 455/07
edit - link might be temporarily? down at time of posting
EDIT#2 - link to 455/07

Please pass this on to anyone who you feel would be interested in regaining their civil rights back. It starts with a small law like this one to set a precedent...what will our government do next?

Just wondering... It has been a while since this bill was passed, and I imagine there have already been trials. Has anybody heard if this bill has been challenged by a lawyer? (No doubt that some big money car owners have hired good lawyers)
How many have been found not guilty?

Actually this is something I'm also wondering. I don't even recall ever hearing anything even from any of the large car groups/clubs challenging this in court.
