I have a small british roadster - Lotus (Caterham) Super Seven. I'm thinking of replacing my wind shield with small adjustable wind screens without wipers (called brooklands aeroscreens). The modification is reversible.
Am I really going to get stopped and charged $200 in Ontario as I will not have a working set of wipers?
I do live right around the corner from an OPP station.
1) Do you get caught?
2) Is it actually raining out?
2) Every Officer is an individual and can use their own discretion.
Look at it like rolling dice, sometimes you roll boxcars and sometimes snake eyes.
How you react during the vehicle stop may influence the outcome as well.
Personally i'd probably give you what we call a traffic notice to remedy the problem within 2 days and report to the police station.
Just my two cents and other officers might ticket you.
I guess its a slippery slope though.
Oh well, ce'st la vie.
