CASE LAW - R v Chamberlain
Colt Chamberlain was convicted in traffic court for driving at 145 km/h in a posted 90 km/h zone on highway 19 in Delta. He appealed the conviction based on the failure of the Crown to prove that the speed sign in place on the highway that day was posted by the minister responsible for the administration of the Transportation Act and that the sign applied to his lane of travel.
The Associate Chief Justice H. Holmes examined the law and found that the speed sign was properly placed and applied to Mr. Chamberlain. The appeal was dismissed.
