Q&A - Unlicensed Vehicle Strays from Private Roads
Our strata has about a mile of private road and we have our own pickup truck rigged up for snow plowing. The vehicle is not licensed as the intent is for use solely on our posted private road. However, I have come to learn that the operator, as a favor to neighbours outside our strata, has taken to plowing some of the public road, an area rarely addressed on a timely basis by MOT plows. My concern is potential liability of working the public road. Our truck is single purpose and otherwise serves no other function. It seems that one can run a front end loader on a public road and my recollection is that it may have only a reflective triangle, or perhaps even a flashing orange light.
