Q&A - Multiple Traffic Controls

Q&A ImageRecently I have been given a ticket for not stopping on a stop sign at an intersection equipped with a pedestrian controlled light while it was green. I live in Vancouver and could say that such intersections exist everywhere and almost every driver in the city is aware of the problem.

Q&A - Publicising Speeding Enforcement

Q&A ImageWhy are radar locations are allowed to be broadcast on the radio road reports? I have seen, so many times, people drive slow where they know radar is, only to start speeding once they get past them. Isn't the idea of radar to catch the speeders?

Q&A - Trouble With the Towing Company

Q&A ImageQUESTION: I was given a 24 hour Driving Prohibition in Richmond BC in December 2009. When I called the tow company after 24 hours to get their address, I was told that there was a police hold on the Vehicle. This so called hold carried on until I contacted the RCMP Officer who had issued me the 24 Hr Suspension. He got back to me 12 days later, saying that there was no record of a Police Hold on the vehicle, and that he had removed this hold.

Q&A - Off Road Vehicles

I would like to know of laws and regulations for off road vehicle use on residential roadways. My neighbours frequently use their dirt bikes to race up and down our street (drivers age from about 6 to grown adults) while other children are playing and there is traffic. Some drivers wear the protection, others not.

Q&A - Using Small Claims Court for Collision Damages

Q&A ImageTwo years ago an elderly woman ran into me with her personal go-cart. She hit me from behind, at full throttle as I sat on a chair in the back row of an outdoor concert. The force of the collision was enough to drive me and my chair under the chair of the man in front of me.

Q&A - Notice and Order #2

Sherlock Holmes like graphicQUESTION: I was pulled over yesterday by a member of the police and issued a ticket and inspection order for illegal front window tint. I asked that I be able to remove the tint myself and then present the vehicle and notice to a peace officer.

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.
