Constitutional challenge to s. 68.1(1) - speed limiters

Unread post by Simon Borys on

There is an ongoing challenge to s. 68.1(1) of the Highway Traffic Act, which mandates speed limiting devices for commercial motor vehicles. It will be heard soon by the Ontario Court of Justice, sitting as an appeal court from the decision of the justice of the peace who ruled the legislation unconstitutional.

There was a preliminary set of reasons released recently regarding fresh evidence in the appeal: http://canlii.ca/en/on/oncj/doc/2013/20 ... cj213.html

For those who are interested in this issue, keep watching for the reasons for decision in R v Michaud.
