Lights, without a doubt the subject that generates the greatest number of requests for DriveSmartBC articles. We've looked at almost every kind of light connected with the operation of a vehicle or cycle on a highway in British Columbia, so it's time to widen our view to the roadside. Have you been blinded by the light emitted by newer LED advertising signs?
I'm disputing a ticket issued for a 144(1)(c), Speed relative to road conditions, and I'm wondering what is admissable as a legal defence for the violation.
The Victoria Transport Policy Institute web site introduces the concept of Complete Streets. This term refers to roads designed to accommodate diverse modes, users and activities including walking, cycling, public transit, automobile, nearby businesses and residents. Such street design helps create more multi-modal transport systems and more livable communities. This report discusses reasons to implement complete streets and how it relates to other planning innovations.
A teen stepped off of the sidewalk as I approached, hopped onto his skateboard and began to weave slightly along the curb in front of my vehicle. He either trusted me with his life or had not given much thought to his own as he was far enough into the lane to be a hazard and had his back to overtaking traffic. I had to slow and crowd the center lane to get by.
This is a case that I had to read a number of times and refer to a picture of the intersection to understand what path Ms. Hunstad, a cyclist, had taken. Rather than cross McCallum Road in Abbotsford in a straight line by using Marshall Road she took an erratic path that included travel the wrong way on McCallum twice.
i recently had my truck inspected at a government shop and had a few compaints and concerns with the people at the counter not knowing answers to my questions and them actually giving me false information about driving my truck during the inspection process.
I have a question about where to position my vehicle when making a left turn at an (big) intersection with a light. I have always entered the intersection (stopping somewhat before halfway through), then waited (with my signal on) to proceed safely and make the turn. I have noticed that other drivers wait at the limit line and do not (are barely) enter the intersection.
Our daughter failed her road test due to not reducing her speed to 30km as she drove past a playground. No signs were present. The examiner did acknowledge that she did obey the signed school zone. when she questioned this, the examiner said that regardless of signs, she needed to be aware of her surroundings. He failed her for speeding.
I used to smile when I saw closely spaced traffic, a large gap, a police vehicle, another large gap and finally more closely spaced traffic. Everyone is afraid of the cop I thought. Having spent 25 years driving a marked police vehicle I recognize both that I rarely see this anymore and that it was a wise thing to do. Police vehicles often make unexpected starts, stops and turns.
I received a traffic ticket for making a U turn on Pacific Avenue at Davie Street. The traffic violation sites Motor Vehicle Act 168(b)(iv) as the violation, but if I'm to understand the law it seems that according to the same Act 168 section(a) that as long as I was able to do so without interfering with other traffic it was okay. Am I wrong?
