B) Parking is probihited between 8:30am and 4:30pm while Monday to Friday in July and August are exempted. I don't think anybody's claiming that the answer is B. In fact, I don't think any of your options reflect the true (intended) meaning as bent said. F) Parking is prohibited (between 8:30 am an...

While I agree with bend's interpretation, as a computer programmer I can see how there are challenges with interpreting the logic based purely on reading the sign ;-)

There may be regulations which inform us on how to read the sign, of course.

My interpretation is that anything to the rear would be permissible by the Act, no?
To the rear shouldn't be a problem... your vehicle probably came from the factory with red flashing lights on the rear ;-)

Please don’t tell me that the front of the vehicle means ONLY the bumper, the windshield could also be considered the front!
OK, I won't tell you.

But I will tell you that your argument won't float in court.

Be repentant and explain your situation. If you get lucky you can get a reduction of the fine and time to pay. My wife got both for an unbeatable red-light-camera ticket, when in a similar circumstance.

replies: 4

The onus is on the driver who is required to yield. Drivers who have the right of way should not have to alter their driving to accommodate those who do not. While I don't disagree with that, it kind of makes it impossible for somebody whose driveway is very near an intersection to actually comply,...

More details required.... 136 (b) is a failure to stop offense.

I read it that you are already convicted and asking why they are making you take a road test, is that your question?

Re: HTA 139(1) failing to yield from private drive

Not an expert, but it strikes me that if you couldn't see the vehicle because it was around a corner, it was not "so close as to constitute an immediate hazard". But I invite the experts to shoot me down!

Regarding the emergency service bill, this is normal in some municipalities and you can pass it on to the insurance company or pay it yourself. The bill is for attending the incident in general, not specific to you, but since you were the "at fault" party you get the bill. Regarding disclosure, you ...

Re: RED LIGHT PROCEED BEFORE GREEN TICKET $325..

Of course you lose nothing except your time by fighting it, but be aware that nothing you have said so far would seem to indicate that you will win. You say you stopped, the officer says you didn't. In the absence of other witnesses, who will be believed? If you decide to fight it, consult the vario...

Re: HTA vs. Bill 31 - Yielding to pedestrians crossover/crosswalks

The best and brightest have spoken, and FWIW I agree with them. As I read your post, you have been convicted, right? So, you need to start an appeal. That's a bit more complicated process, as I understand it, and there are specific time limits, etc. Depending on your comfort level you might consider...
