Q&A - Hockey Stick Pipes

Q&A ImageI met a new Canadian yesterday, in his large car, and the visor was SO low that there is only (what looked to be, I didn't go over and measure) like 2 feet from the hood to the bottom of the visor. I understand the benefits of a drop visor, but this is taking an aftermarket improvement, to the absolute extreme.

Q&A - Bumper width on a Jeep Wrangler

Q&A ImageI was thinking of getting a stubby bumper for my Jeep and the MVA says:

"...and where a replacement bumper has been installed, it shall give substantially the same protection as the original bumper."

Q&A - Disclosure / Adjournment Question

Q&A ImageI went to traffic court and officer asked for an adjournment due to fact he had not complied with my request for disclosure. My question is do I have to request for disclosure again or is it the officer's responsibility to give it to me now?

I think the issue was he was working for different jurisdictions at that time so there was some clerical error.

Q&A - Turning left across a median, which route to take?

Q&A ImageA topic came up in local Reddit forum today, with an equal split of opinions, both sides being adamant that their approach is correct. When turning left across a median, is it the red line that drivers should take or the blue?

Q & A - Road Signs Used in BC

Q&A ImageQ: A while ago you had offered a test that new drivers have to get 80% on in order to pass. But there were at least 2 signs I had never seen before. One was a circle with nothing in it and then a square with nothing in it. I'm wondering if there are other signs I've never seen before and was trying to find a place on the driver's web-site where I could look at all the signs and what they mean - however, I couldn't find it. I'm wondering if you could give me the url to that information.

Q&A - Twin Daughters and GLP

New Driver Signs 2011I have twin daughters who will very soon be getting their 'L'.  The believe the passenger restriction for a learner's licence is 1 supervisor and 1 other passenger.  This will be a considerable lost opportunity for them to practice driving when we go somewhere as a family.  If you've dealt with this situation do you have any advice?

Q&A - Stopping in the middle of a lane change

Q&A ImageI notice a habit of Vancouver drivers is that when they are turning right, and the right hand lane is used for parking and/or cycling, they will casually pull halfway into the right-hand lane and then stop (either for a red light, or to yield to a crosswalk).

Even the 3rd or 4th car in a lineup waiting to turn right will do this: stopping on the dashed line.
