Regarding "No Trucks" signage

Wasn't sure where to put this, so figured here was my best bet. I have a question regarding the rules behind the no truck signs you see on side streets, and can't seem to find any information on it. The hta doesn't say anything that i could see. Basically, it was my understanding that those no truck...

Re: RIDE program, your rights, weigh in

I'm not fully understanding what the argument against ride checks is. They are there to make the roads safer.... I have a right to drive in public roadways and not be wrecked by an intoxicated driver. The program was started, I'm assuming, because of public outcry to do something about impaired driv...

Re: Breathalyzer Test

Police are not "obligated" to give you the breathalyzer if you admit to consuming. Like everything else, that is discretionary. Just like how police don't have ticket quotas but are expected to write a certain number of tickets per shift to show they're working, right? So when you were a police off...

Re: Has the standard for 11(b) changed?

mnstrcck is right. I did that with a red light ticket I received September 2010. My trial was set for July 2011. They didn't give me disclosure until 2 days before the court date so my paralegal had the trial moved on their onus (they didn't provide us enough time review the evidence, or something l...

Re: Breathalyzer Test

The only thing that shows up on your driving record are convictions. As to whether it'll be flagged under your name in the popo computer I don't know. I'd personally proceed with that assumption. And FYI, if you admit to having even a sip of alcohol, the police are obligated to breathalyze you.

Re: 61km/h on 40km/h zone right beside my house

If you go to court you could possibly get it dropped to the lesser charge, which would be no points and a smaller fine.

Re: Driving protocol

If you're dumb enough to get in the slow lane 2 km before the exit, that's your problem. . I would rather see the move/merge over 2km before and see them "fidgetting waiting" than the 200m and less lane cutters from left to right across 3 lanes and just going across the "bullnose" area of the ramp!...

Re: Driving protocol

I hear that. When you're in the slow lane, your obeying the law by doing the speed limit. When people start tail gating me at that point, I start slowing down slowly (safely, I should add). Doesn't do them any favours, so they go around. Problem solved. I've covered my ass (literally and figurativel...

Re: driving with suspended liscense 3rd time

Yeah if I were you I'd definitely show up to court. It would be easier to explain to your boss that you have to take a day off, than to explain to your boss why you missed 6 weeks of work.....

Re: Trial Next Month

Firstly, if your son got a ticket for 15 over, why did you post in the 30-49 over forum? Secondly, it sounds like the cop took several different readings of the speed. And judging from those readings, he probably gave your kid a break and lowered it so he wouldn't lose points (you might want to ask ...

What are the penalties for driving without a license and/or insurance?

Not exactly hard to spot,lol. Kind of like a spee...

Re: Careless Driving - no light, skidded right turn, no acci

What does speed have to do with the ticket itself? Careless Driving doesn't have to do with speed specifically, although in many cases speed is a factor in the event that causes a CD ticket to be issued. You might be able to get it pled down to a lesser charge, or you might not, nobody can say for c...
