Q&A - Slow Down, Move Over Education

slow down move over signI’m a professional driver on the Island,I have been driving since the mid 60s and have logged many accident free kms. My interest in writing is the “slow down, move over law." I have done it for decades. Not enough drivers seem to be aware of it.

The signs posted on the highways are difficult to read at 120kmh the most prominent portion of them is a red and blue light on top of a sedan.

What is a Regular School Day?

Q&A ImageIt occurred to me that the term "school days" on the school zone signs is becoming more and more ambiguous. What is a school day?

For example, some school districts take a 2 week spring break, others only one, some schools are going with shorter summer vacations, what about ProD days? Some private schools have different schedules. It used to be much more uniform date-wise.

Q&A - Speed on the Coquihalla

Q&A ImageWe travel Highway 5 from Hope to Kamloops two times each year. We are concerned about the increase in speed to 120 from 110. Many of the drivers go well above that limit which causes dangerous conditions. Concerned for our safety.

Q&A - Too Close to a Stop Sign?

no parking signMy husband was parked on the street and was 8 metres and a bit away from the stop sign, just to the right of the gravel patch shown below. A tow truck was about to tow the car when my husband went to rectify the situation. There was still 2 feet between the car and the 8 meter mark. So he moved his car back a little more just that everyone is happy.

Towed for Excessive Speed Avoiding a Tailgater

Q&A ImageI received a excessive speeding ticket while on my motorcycle in June 2016. I stated to the police officer that I was attempting to elude a tailgater, which he did not see of course.

The tailgater positioned himself behind my bike 3 times in 3 kilometers before I sped off to go to a public venue with cameras should the tailgater cause me trouble.

Q&A - Pedestrians at Bertram & Bernard in Kelowna

We have an intersection at Bertram and Bernard in Kelowna that has a pedestrian controlled light on one side that stop Bernard traffic for pedestrians.

Drivers coming south on Bertram can only take a right at Bernard and arrive at a stop sign.

Q&A - Stop Signs at Rail Crossings

Q&A ImageWho’s responsibility is to place a stop sign at a rail crossing? Does one stop at the stop sign or before? Who’s responsibility is it that the track is visible from a distance of 5 or more metres? How is visibility of the track determined?

Q&A - Tow for Unlicensed Scooter Justified?

Q&A ImageIt was necessary for me to move my 50cc scooter 3 miles from one storage location to another. It was daylight, the weather was good and there was no other traffic on the road at the time. I made an error of judgment and decided to make this move on my scooter without current tags since I would not be using it for several months. It did not occur to me to think about a day pass.

Q&A - Collision Investigation

Q&A ImageI recently passed the scene of what appears to be a serious motorcycle/car accident on the Connector between Cumberland and Courtenay. There were 3 police cars there and very professional traffic control devices and flag people. The investigation appears to be underway.

Q&A - We Need a Left Turn Lane

Q&A ImageI am frustrated !!

Our Mobile Home Park needs a left turn lane off Casorso road in Kelowna BC.

Casorso Road is a reasonable volume road with connections to schools, shopping centers, churches, residences, and other normal destinations.

As it passes by our 130 home park, very dangerous traffic activity occurs at the main entrance/exit.
