My question: Is my driveway considered a roadway under the HTA? Should I have been charged under the HTA?
I believe that a city bylaw covers sidewalks that intersects private driveways but I wasn't charged under the bylaw.
You cannot park on your own property unless it is a driveway !!!!!!! this is the most pathetic piece of so called legislation I have heard (well there are several to be honest).... so basically they can say and do whatever they please in regard to your own land.... They may have used the wrong ```law```but I expect they will twist it and say it was the road ...hard to get logic and facts to be presented these days without video and pics which they are fast trying to stop us using....sad times
well the officer is correct as the sidewalk is part of the "lateral property lines" that the municipality owns defined in the HTA, however what caused the glitch or "lucky for you" was that a "pedestrian crossover" definition is not applicable for sidewalks parallel to the road. The "pedestrian crossover" must "cross" the roadway.syntst wrote:Seems the private driveway and sidewalk are not part of the highway or roadway as the constable thought..
thanks for the update for all the members, good job!
