Young high-income males in Northern
TORONTO JULY 3rd,
2014 - In
a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 810 Ontario
adults, one half would like to see speed limits on the province's 400 series
highways increased (48%), while just fewer (45%) would not like this to happen.
Very few have no opinion on this question (7%).
Interest in increased speed limits is common to younger (35
to 44 - 58%) males (57%) in higher income brackets ($80K to $100K - 63%, $100K
to $250K - 60%) in Northern Ontario (58%). PC supporters are slightly more
likely (52%) than New Democrats (45%) to approve.
“The usual suspects are the ones with the need for speed -
younger males. The wide open spaces in the north appear to be especially
inviting, too," said
