Is there a statute that states the time/distance needed for a sign to be visible before the action can be taken?
Help!! Trial in future is imminent.

"No turn" signs are governed under section 21 of the regulation. They must be visible for at least 60 metres or, unless something about the road makes it impossible. The road where you got ticketed makes a pretty sharp turn around Casa Loma, so the sign may be compliant with the regulations. You'd have to argue that there was a better place to put the sign, and show some evidence of it.45. A sign prescribed by this Regulation, other than a sign prescribed by section 13, 14, 15, 24, 25, 26 or 27, shall be so placed as to be visible at all times for a distance of at least 60 metres to the traffic approaching the sign. O. Reg. 175/08, s. 15.
47. Where the characteristics of a highway make it impracticable to place a sign or pavement markings as specified in this Regulation, the sign or pavement markings shall be placed so as to comply as nearly as practicable with those requirements.
The Prosecutor may offer you a deal of a municipal by-law infraction for this offence.

yes, HTA Ontario Regulation 615twothdkdr wrote:Are the quotes from the traffic act?
NoI was also looking at the Ontario Traffic Manual book 1B which specifies reading times 7.1 and Perception-reaction Time 7.2 and Comprehension Testing 14.1. Do these things apply as well?
