Q&A - Drivers Who Are Too Polite to Cyclists

Q&A ImageIn my community I have noticed an occasional phenomenon of drivers being too 'polite' to bicycles at certain intersections.

Q&A - Blame it on the Weather

Q&A ImageThere's an article in the paper about a motor vehicle that skidded then flipped and landed on its roof in the ditch during a heavy hailstorm. A police spokesperson said the cause of the crash was attributed to the weather and no charges are being contemplated.

Q&A - Why Shouldn't I Coast Through Stop Signs?

What is the purpose of completely coming to a stop at a 3 or 4 way stop when there are no vehicles or pedestrians near the intersection? A rolling stop should be sufficient, as MOST drivers including professional drivers never completely stop. There are at least 3 good reasons for NOT coming to a complete stop. I cannot think of one good reason for coming to a COMPLETE stop.

Q&A - Mirrors

Q&A ImageIs this vehicle legal to drive with no drivers side mirror? The passenger side mirror is there, but the window is missing and replaced with plastic.

Q&A - Ticketed for Crossing Double Solid Line to Avoid a Collision

Q&A ImageI have been ticketed for crossing a double yellow line just before the end of the right hand lane in a passing zone. The reason for this manoeuvre was I had been in the right lane and catching up to another vehicle, I switched to the left lane to overtake the slower moving vehicle, I estimate the speed variation to be around 30 KPH.

Q&A - Ticketed for Slow Driving

Q&A ImageI just got home from my week of driving and today I received a ticket for "Slow Driving" which I don't understand or agree with.

Q&A - Cyclists, Pedestrians and Pathways

Q&A ImageFor years I've thought about sending this question to you. This is regarding the issue of "walk on left, ride on right". I have always understood that on any road/path with no sidewalk that is shared by pedestrians and vehicles (including bicycles), the pedestrians should keep to the left facing traffic, and the vehicles keep to the right.

Q&A - Vehicle Noise, Speeding and Lack of Effective Policing

Q&A imageA large majority of drivers have simply forgot about traffic laws, safety and respect for others. Daily, one can see many drivers traveling at 20-50 km/hr faster then the posted speed limits. The problem is so bad that some of us residents have formed a Concerned Residents Committee to help us voice our concerns for a solution to this on-going problem.

Q&A - The GLP Designated Driver and Passenger Rules

Q&A ImageCan someone with their N have more than one friend in the car if they are the designated driver?

Q&A - Too Many Points

Q&A imageBeing a young person I don't have the best driving record I have 13 points in the last 5 years couple of speeding tickets a failure to signal and a no drivers license (I had a license but it wasn't on me it was at home). So after 2 speeding tickets in the last 2 years I got rid of the motorcycle and the fast car and grew up.
