How to Build a Highway

MOTI BannerThe more that I learn about how to construct one of BC's highways, the more I see how complicated that job really is.

Q&A - Recording the Public Driving on the Highway

Q&A ImageI have this cool little camera called a Go Pro, it is very tiny and you can attach it to anything you want (your surf board, mountain bike, car, etc.) It's waterproof and apparently bulletproof as well (not that I'll be needing that).

Q&A - Pollution

Q&A ImageWhy is it that people can still drive our streets in vehicles puking out pollution? Isn't there laws against this? If so please contact the owner of BC plate [deleted] and ask to get the thing repaired. Not fair to be trapped behind one of these and have to breathe in the stench!

Q&A - Projecting Load

Q&A Image

I can't find it anywhere... How far can, say a 2x4, stick out of a trailer before it needs a flag? (Alberta used to be 5 feet...)

Carpooling Makes Sense

Carpooling makes sense, no doubt about it. It cuts down on emissions, saves commuting costs, reduces congestion on our highways and helps us feel good for being part of the solution rather than part of the problem. For the most part, as far as the laws are concerned, true carpooling is relatively unregulated too.

Q&A - Blacking Out the Address

Q&A ImageI have heard a vehicle owner can carry a photocopy of his Owners Certificate of Insurance and Vehicle Licence with the address obliterated so that anyone breaking into the vehicle cannot determine the owner's address. Is this true?

The Ubilt Utility Trailer

Ubilt Utility TrailerThe quality of a home made utility trailer can range from factory perfect to I'm amazed that it is still following you. Licencing, lights and weight are the most common problems encountered by enforcement personnel at the roadside. With a little thought and knowledge you can pull that extra load around safely.

Q&A - Riding in the Back of a Pickup Truck

Q&A ImageI just wanted to check - is it legal to have adult passengers ride in the back/box of a pickup truck while driving in BC, and are there any restrictions, i.e. Highways etc?

Q&A - Driving With One Arm in a Sling

Q&A ImagePlease can you tell me if driving a car with uninjured LEFT arm crossing body to work gear stick, (NOT automatic car) and WITHOUT a suicide knob fitted, with one's arm in a sling due to separated shoulder Level 3, IS IT ILLEGAL? ICBC seem to think it is OK to do. I think it is another accident waiting to happen. Please help, people need to know.

CASE LAW - R v Alexander

BC Courts Coat of ArmsBrian Alexander was stopped for excessive speeding in Kamloops, B.C. He was issued a traffic ticket for excessive speed and police attempted to impound his vehicle for seven days as required by the Motor Vehicle Act. Mr. Alexander responded that he had no intention of giving up his vehicle, sat inside it and refused to get out when required to do so by the officer.
