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 - 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 - 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.
