I wonder though who the penalty goes to?
It seems to me that it should go to the accompanying passenger as the G1 licensed driver would have no way to know how impaired the accompanying passenger is.
But I have no idea what the rules are or what the penalties are for either the G1 driver or the accompanying passenger.
Anyone have any ideas?
If it is the G1 driver, is there any case law that supports a conviction for this?
I appreciate the reply but how do you know this?JohnDeere wrote:The G1 driver would get a ticket for violating the conditions of their novice license, much like if they drive by themselves.
Is there any precedent for such a charge?
It would seem to me that getting out of such a ticket would be child's play.
And would the accompanying driver get charged with anything?
Edit: Before posting, I checked Canlii and can find very few G1 license violation cases at all and nothing on point. I may be missing something/ some search criteria that would be helpful
