Re: Distance to follow...ask yourself

To be honest, I don't think that formula is very good... You need to take into account many variables, road condition, your tires, your vehicle stopping power, your own response time, other cars around you, open space to steer away to avoid a collision and who knows what else that I can't think of....

Re: Radar detector offense

Not all cruisers are equipped the same. I will guess within our area...
About 15 cruisers, 10 moving radar units(radar affixed in cruiser), 2 handheld radar, 2 lidar, 2 RDD and one ALPR (automated licence plate reading).
So 13 units without a RDD.

Re: Paying ticket on due date, will my license be suspended?

as daggx mentioned call ASAP Tuesday morning. Last thing you need is to be suspended, as soon as that is logged onto your licence, it is listed on there forever and insurance can see that you were suspended. Then also need to pay MTO another fee to get your licence status reinstated, that's if it be...

I don't understand what your getting at here? As my post above was a reference of distance travelled and coming to a complete stop with various speeds once a danger was detected.

Distance to follow...ask yourself

I didn't want to put two cents on another thread. I do have over 400hrs of speciality training in collisions. I know we see this all the time and to me it is just baffling. Why are people following too close on the highways and city streets? It takes an average of 1.5 seconds for someone to see a da...

Re: New regulation in the news

Just adding onto this, the new crosswalk law, where you need to wait until the person completely exits the intersection. There is one right near the entrance of my work, and 9/10 times, someone is usually crossing. So I stop, wait for them to completely finish crossing, then proceed. I'd say out of...

Re: Radar detector offense

I'm actually curious though if cruise control/crash avoidance radars would actually trigger the police detectors. I've read that certain radar detectors can get false positives from other vehicles, but I was under the impression that detector detectors were looking for a different signal then the r...

Re: New regulation in the news

The regulation is not HTA related... Topic MOVED Regulation mostly deals with people on foot. However, people still need to be cognizant of all laws. There are so many areas even within one Act, such as the HTA that people don't know, once an officer knows a section, then can enforce it. A couple co...

Re: Radar detector offense

I'm not sure I follow. Are you suggesting they possibly didn't have the right to pull you over? . yes, the new escalades have the adaptive cruise control that uses radar and that give a false beep and technically they cannot assume that a RD was in the vehicle? The RDD does not pick up radar signal...

Re: Radar and GPS

And the Lat/long on the ALPR means nothing anyway, it obtained and beeped at the location read by the camera, however can follow that vehicle, completing other checks, possibly waiting for another cruiser, and stop that vehicle many kilometres away, the offence location can be the new location stopp...

Re: Possible made up six demerit point, $315 threat

To the bigger picture....you describe this as 4 lanes wide which is huge width to block.....I have often encountered this on the other perspective on a 2 lane road, we have minimal units and have to shut the road down, we do the best we can with the resources we have immediately at hand ( cruiser, m...

Re: Police refuses to charge (175)

Yes owner of vehicle can be charged, would need a statement from the witness (you) and pending what you saw, a statement from the bus driver to ensure the overhead lights were operational. I would go farther and go see the bus myself and check the lights, on top of all the statements.
