Congratulations on the way you handled it, nexxen90. Glad it's worked out as it should. It would be even nicer if the problem had never arisen at all, of course, but we do live in the real world, and stuff happens. Just a thought... have you considered sending a follow-up letter to the same exalted ...

All excellent choices. I picked one, but if it's either of the other two I'd also be entirely happy with that.

Were there any markings on the pavement that would designate where you parked as being a crosswalk?

...they should have banned cellular phone use altogether. I agree with that statement. But the problem is technology has created small businesses that can easily operate out of a simple pickup truck. Many self employed individuals don't even have an office or a shop. Their tools are in the truck an...

OHTA store sounds like a good idea so, being a loyal member, I go there to buy a bluetooth headset. Plantronics Explorer 330. $18.54. They won't ship it to Canada. Next?

Well, I guess that about covers it. The police seem to get off lightly.

ice falling is treated much the same way as debris falling from the truck. Been lurking on this thread with interest -- like most drivers I too have been hit by stuff flying off trucks (including an aerodynamic 4'x4' piece of corrugated sheet metal two or three years ago), but figured it wasn't wor...

Well done, Dr. Squishy, PhD (Batt.Chem.)! Thanks. I'd happily go into Whatever Professor mode myself in return, if only I were an expert in anything in which anyone here (or, essentially, anywhere else) might have the slightest interest.

Re: Someone help please...suspended licence

I was sentenced to pay a fine and learnt that my driving licence will be suspended for 6 months...Should my lawyer have requested it before sentencing? OTTLegal, that sounds like it's already a done deal. Blackoffi is asking whether an appeal would be advisable, and whether there is some way to get...

Personally, I never slept better than a couple of times we took long bus trips to play tournaments (think New Orleans, at Mardi Gras) and I could get up into the open, un-compartmentalized overhead luggage rack. Remember those? Lovely motion, gently rocking. (Marred only, on the way to New Orleans, ...

Your hunch may be right, Bear, but about the best I've been able to find so far is the Canadian Press story from 30 September. http://www.cp24.com/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20090930/090930_cellphoneban/20090930/?hub=CP24Home Details are hazy there, but CP seems to think that there will be fines "up t...

"Published in Canada by [Carswell?]..." What does that mean? It probably means they're trying to fool us. Carswell is a Canadian publisher that specializes in legal materials. By saying one of their titles is "Published in Canada" they're likely tippy-toeing around making it too clear that it was p...
