    PERSONAL opinions of an OPP SAVE officer

    You're using muscular power as part of the process. You're not actually driving it, so I'd suggest no.

    As they fall under the definition of vessel, yes it is technically possible to be charged with impaired.

    No. To be charged with impaired the vehicle must be driven or propelled by anything OTHER THAN muscular power. However, should you be drunk riding a bike in public (off private property) you be arrested and fined for public intoxication and depending on the circumstances held until sober.

    Too bad they got the tickets but the pressure comes from way up the line. And really, if the strap isn't on securely you might as well not even bother wearing the helmet.

    Where do I begin?!?!?! There are many.. reflex reflectors on all four corners facing outward, tire pressures, lights on at all times, brakes etc.... Then you have UTV/side by side. Standards for windshields, seat belts, width, power etc... Here's what I want to see: Helmet (on AND done up properly), "proper" speed, lights on, passenger compliance. Paperwork if I stop you. Do I really care about stickers that get chewed up the first few times through a dense trail.. NOPE! (unless you convince me to care.. 😉 ). I can only think of one or two officers that may actually look for those. Neither work the trails anymore. Don't knock stupidity!! It feeds my family!!!

    I could not find anything supporting new changes but will continue to look. As with anything else like this, if there was a change, all previous systems would be grandfathered in.

    As SKS says, your trailer..unless its a tiny trailer is registered to low. If you add any load to that trailer you are overweight and potentially in a situation where you could be fined. Your registration for your truck is still ok IF that is the registered empty weight. So here is the black/white. Also.. if the truck is stickered trailer should be stickered, but if it's a small trailer without brakes, etc you would most likely not be stopped. IF THE TRAILER HAS THE STICKER, THE TRUCK NEEDS THE STICKER. If the trailer weighs over 2800kg, you must add it to the weight of the truck. WEIGHTS: Gross Weight (GW) - HT A S. 1 (1) "gross weight" means the combined weight of vehicle(s) and load. Registered Gross Weight (RGW)- 0. Reg 628 S. 1 (PermiUregistration) HTA 7-14 If trailer weights over 2,800 kilograms, must add it to weight of truck and have an RGW to cover all. Manufacturers Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR): What the manufacturer recommends as the max weight (vehicle/occupants/cargo) Driver's Licences - 0. Reg 340/94 S. 1 (1) "registered gross weight" means the weight for which a permit has been issued under the Act, the fee for which is based on the weight of the vehicle or combination of vehicles and load. ' ANNUAL INSPECTIONS (Yellow sticker) - 0. Reg 611 S. 8 (1) & (2) Deals with combined weights of the same type CMV defined under HTA 1 (1) (includes pick-ups) •!• If one of the following is over 4500KG o Gross Weight (combined actual weight; truck/trailer) o RGW (Registration/Permit) o MGVWR (on sticker, inside door) •!· Truck and trailer require an annual inspection! For the most part, CMVs are determined by their weight relevant to the section which is being spoken to. Important Numbers: Under 4500 (RGW, GW, or MGVWR): regular documents Over 4500 MGVWR: Annual Inspection required Over 4500 RGW or actual GW (power unit only): CVOR, Pre-trip, Log Book (possible), Annual Inspection RGW of 8181 or more: Name on CMV Over 11793 Actual weight: CAB/I RP permit if from out of province. Trailer over 1360kg: brakes required Trailer over 2800kg: register the truck for combined weight of truck and trailer Trailer weighing less than 2800kg: register truck for actual weight (when attached to trailer/tongue weight) Lengths: Overhang 1.5m, Max width veh/load 2.6m, Max length Veh 12.5m(single), 23m(combined), 25m (trains), 40m LCV
