Re: Drive Motor Vehicle No Currently Validated Permit (is it a moving violation?)

K so I called an insurance company anonymously to inquire and the individual said it results in a "minor conviction," and that indeed it will result in an insurance increase. So I keep hearing that non-moving violations don't result in an increase but this doesn't appear to be true. Any excuse thes...

Re: BAC >0 G2 and more.

You knew the rules and you broke them. The situation has no bearing on things and does not need to be considered. What you need to do now is try to find a way to minimize the effects of this charge, and if I were you I would not bring up the situation as you described it at all - no one will be symp...

Re: BAC >0 G2 and more.

How can you say you don't deserve this? You chose to drink the sips of alcohol and then chose to drive.

Re: LED lighting

actually did a little perusing on the web is constant , green or amber allowed ? Why would you want to add extra lights that only serve to draw attention to your car.? I like to be as inconspicuous as possible. As far as green, I know that's the colour used by volunteer firefighters. Amber should b...

Re: No Insurance Accident, Please Advise

That's a long winded rant and I'm sure you feel you've accomplished something by writing it but at the end of the day what you did was not a mistake. I make mistakes all the time. I occasionally forget to take my drivers licence with me when I drive. I occasionally make mistakes in my work. But you ...

Re: Definition of a U-Turn

This reminds me of another question regarding private driveways: if you are waiting to turn right but there is a long line, and also a business like a gas station at the corner with entrances on both roads, it is lawful to "skip the line" and go through the parking lot? I don't see why it wouldn't ...

Re: Summons 3 Hand Held Device

I would not imagine that the court will go easy on you given your record of prior use of hand held device convictions and that you flipped off the officers. So unless there is a fatal error on the ticket or if there is something in the officer's notes that will help my guess is you will be convicted...

Re: Police Entrapment

Your thread title indicates you think this was entrapment by police. It was not. As for it being entrapment by the other driver, I don't believe it is. For this to have been entrapment the police officer and the other driver would have had to colluded to convince you to pass. Which means the officer...

Re: Ontario reintroducing Photo Radar/Speed Cameras?

Has there been a series of injuries and fatalities in school zones recently that has prompted the cameras? I doubt it! It's all about income generation... tax the people until they revolt! No doubt there is the lure of revenue that is appealing to authorities with photo radar. But I think there is ...

Re: can you still get a ticket ?

If he was going to get a ticket, they would have pulled him over right then. 120 on the 400 is not going to make them sit up and take notice unless the weather conditions are bad...They are looking for the high milers... Agreed. In good weather I always set my cruise to 120 on the 400 series and I ...

Re: ticketed for 149km/h on 401 by PEEL POLICE

I seem to remember reading somewhere (either HTA or Police Services Act) that OPP has exclusive jurisdiction on the 400-Series highways. Did I read that incorrectly or has that been repealed? I can't find the reference. Well, I've seen drivers pulled over on 417 in Ottawa my Ottawa Police AND by mi...

Re: Ontario reintroducing Photo Radar/Speed Cameras?

If the real reason of the proposed cameras is safety rather than revenue generation then I would hope that there is a sign warning drivers of the cameras.

Insurance, ownership, (and rental cars)

I have searched the forum but I can't find a definitive answer to the following: 1. Does the insurance card carried in a vehicle have to be original or is a photocopy okay? 2. Does the ownership/permit carried in a vehicle have to be original or is a photocopy okay? I ask because I am currently borr...
