CASE LAW - Regina v Dolson
This case is out of Kamloops, B.C. where Philip Dolson disputed a violation ticket for operating his Jeep without proper doors. In this instance he had replaced the OEM doors on his vehicle with Adventure Doors manufactured by Warrior Products. These are tube doors described by the manufacturer as "Designed to replace the vehicle’s full or half doors, Adventure Doors provide additional protection to front seat occupants while off-roading."
Judicial Justice Hughes examines the Motor Vehicle Act Regulations with regard to doors and explains why he convicted Mr. Dolson.
Update July 26, 2014:
According to the Kamloops court registry, this conviction was overturned on appeal. Details on the reason are not currently available. Please note that having a decision overturned does NOT mean that it is legal to use tube doors!
