Q&A - First Ticket

New Driver Signs 2011A few days ago, I have just received my first Novice License and had retained my L for a year without any issue or ticket. Today, I have driven up Burnaby mountain, and down for the first time and was ticketed out a speeding at 92km/hour in a 60km/hour zone.

Q&A - Accident or ??

Q&A ImageAm I the only one who has been intrigued by the Law Firms who post advertisements seeking witnesses to "accidents"?

It would seem that, by that terminology, they have just weakened their client's case by admitting that it was "accidental".  Should that determination not be made by the Court?

Q&A - Driving With the Windshield Folded Down

Q&A - Ticketed for Non-Operational Cell Phone

Q&A ImageI was pulled over recently for the use of electronic devices. The cell phone is damaged and was not operational but I still got a ticket. I needed a help how I can dispute the ticket.

Q&A - City of Surrey Parking Rules

no parking signI was just wondering about parking rules, as my family and any visitors to my home have been hassled by city parking enforcement about parking too close to an intersection. A family member and a caretaker of my grandmother would have been ticketed so far if they had not run out to speak to the officers.

Q&A - Non-Standard Rearview Mirror

New Driver Signs 2011I am currently driving while using a clip-on wide rear-view mirror and was wondering if it's use is allowed during the Class 5 driving test.

Q&A - Tinted Licence Plate Cover

Q&A ImageI have had a tinted license plate cover on my vehicle for over 5 years now, and just recently i have been getting pulled over for it. The first event happened last week and the officer went to explain to me how they were illegal and that i should remove it immediately. Myself being the type that does not follow orders well, i left it on my vehicle.

Q&A - Right Turns After the Turn Lane

Q&A ImageA few of us have recently been discussing whether a certain type of turn is legal or not, with differing opinions. I'm hoping someone here might be able to settle the matter.

There are many intersections with a channelized right turn lane, where drivers turning right are separated by a small island from through and/or left turning traffic. Here's an example of one of these intersections:
