Re: fatal errors? - signature?

Since when does a signature require the full name? Mine is just my initials with a unique scribble in between , not even a first name.

Re: Fail to drive in marked lane...

"People were passing me in the passing lane and the slow lane"
"I was driving very slowly (slower than everyone else it seemed, except the transport truck driver)"

Side note, the username implies it's a "she". :wink:

Re: Fail to drive in marked lane...

Unrelated to your ticket, but this is a huge pet peeve of mine. Keep to the right lane unless you need to pass someone. You should never be passed by vehicles in the "slow lane" (illegal for you) and conversely, you shouldn't pass vehicles to your left (legal, but not a good driving practice).

Re: Turn - not in safety. Advanced Green light. Collision.

Were you facing an advanced green arrow along with a circular green for traffic in the same direction? If so, as long as you can prove that you had the advanced green, the HTA does not require you to yield to through traffic - pretty much the only time that left-turning traffic ever has right-of-way...

Re: Is this a fire route?

"If yellow lines on the pavement means no passing" They don't, especially not in a parking lot. You weren't in a parking space, therefore you were encroaching on the fire route. Same as if you parked on the sidewalk in front of a fire route - just because you are out of the "roadway" does not mean y...

Re: Left turn collision, person travelling in wrong lane

You say you were turning left to go WB - why did you begin the turn with WB traffic still approaching? Were you only fixated on EB traffic and intending to use the centre lane as a merging lane to go WB? If we're going to argue about legal usage of the centre lane, you can't legally drive onto it fo...

Re: Left turn collision, person travelling in wrong lane

You can't go straight on a left turn lane, however, road markings cannot create a left turn lane. They are advisory only, there mus be a black and white sign designating the lane as a left turn lane.

Re: Drive Motor Vehicle, No Currently Validated Permit ticke

Which one is what? I don't see a contradiction here. Your valtag expires on your birthday (unless a commercial vehicle), and a new sticker is not valid unless affixed to the plate and vehicle registration, even if you have paid for it already.

Re: a) Fatal Error on ticket? and b)Toronto Muni Code Violat

Chapter 400 is the traffic and parking bylaws of the City of Toronto. It's not readily available on the internet, but the wording should be: Where U-turns are not prohibited under the provisions of (section on prohibited turns), no person shall while operating a vehicle make such a turn in an unsafe...

Re: Road 'Boundary' Lines

The reflective paint isn't new, I remember seeing it at least ten years ago (the earliest I drove in NY). Their big green highway signs are also much more reflective and readable than ours. I am seeing more of these Botts' Dots being installed, I think the latest batch went onto the 401 near a dark ...

Re: Road 'Boundary' Lines

I blame the paint the MTO uses. They even have a very specific formula to use for road paint, but it's junk compared to what's used nearby in New York State. NYS road paint is actually reflective so it is very clear at night and shows through rain and falling snow.

Re: Passing on the right

It is also legal to pass on the right where pavement is of sufficient width, which doesn't make sense to me that lane markings are not a requirement. There is a road near where I live that is notorious for such passes, but with circumstances opposite to yours - the road goes from one lane to two wit...

Re: Traffic Offence ???

And what's commonly called a "distracted driving" ticket in the media is actually referring to the specific charge of "drive - handheld communication device" - driving with a cell phone or similar device.

Re: Unintentionally failed to stop for school bus!

No, because a stop sign is not a traffic control signal system.
