What personal info of yours was posted?  All we saw was a grainy photo of you stoned, and that was out on the internet.  Why so concerned about hiding behind your keyboard?  Oh right, because someone might read your posts in the Doug Ford thread tonight regarding police officers being overpaid, anyone can do the job for less, etc. As well as you calling people names from your cozy confines.

Here's an inevitable snowbike question @odot1

 

What laws would a blue plated/insured snowbike break,  if observed driving on the shoulder of a road?

Thanks,

All of them!!   :D. Seriously though good question.   I assume with the blue plate it was regidtered as a regular "street bike" and this is a conversion kit?  In that case its been heavily modified from the original manufacturers product so there MAY be issues regarding that.  And as an actual registered vehicle you are not to travel on the shoulder except in exveptional circumstances.  Having said that, off the top of my head I really can't think of any specific laws. I'll bounce of my colleagues and get some feedback.

Haha, Yes, blue plate street bike, conversion kit.   Ktm 500 exc for example. 

I think a huge amount of kits were sold, and are being ridden this year in Ontario.  I predict a biker will be in the headlines soon.  Hope it's not me.  Haha

I am curious as to what Sean's take will be on this one.

All cargo, regardless of what it is must be secured in order to prevent it's ejection in normal driving as well as a collision.  There ate some pretty specific specifications buried deep in the regulations..  but essentially if you have the following covered, you're good. 

-front and rear tied down/secured by quick clamps

-winch does NOT count as a tie down (ATVs)

-loose fuel containers secured in brackets or bungee cords. Fuel stored in approved containers.

-all loose items secured in container or some other way to prevent falling off trailer/out of truck bed.

-all tie downs, ropes, bungees etc  must be in good condition.

Interesting. One of my employees was pulled over last winter. Charged $490 for not having a 1 gallon gas can secured. When leaving the cop would not allow the use of a bungy cord to secure the can, had to be strap with weight tag. The cop did allow him to set it on the floor inside the cab with no securing strap.

Made no sense to me.

The fine for an insecure load is $160 for regular vehicles or $390 for commercial vehicles.  The only $490 fine I can think of is for cell phones. I find it odd that he wouldn't allow a bungee cord unless it was damaged in some way.  I've never met a copper that woukd suggest fuel be stored within a cab.  But there are a few "different" ones out there.

You're right, $390.

Since that happened, I keep mine inside a wooden box.

I am unsure of the proper transportation of "gas" or "gas cans" but maybe that cop was confused with the proper transportation of propane, which is, it can't be carried in a trunk but rather in the cab of a vehicle/car. 

When I first learned of this many years ago, I thought it was nuts but that's what the regulations/rules/laws read.

This past summer I had a 20 lb tank filled at Costco, put it in the trunk just as I always do.  The attendant came right over to the car and demanded it go in the passenger compartment.  Told him to get bent and drove off, but it would seem he was right.

Yeah....  just seems so bizarre really!

It makes sense when you think about it.  If the cylinder is in the passenger compartment and the relief valve starts leaking you will smell it way before there is any real danger. In an enclosed car trunk the concentration of gas could easily reach the tipping point before you caught a whiff. If ignited it would be like a bomb going off in the trunk.

Iam unclear as to what trailers require a safety certification(yellow sticker)is it just a weight thing or whether or not it has factory braking system this of course is for snowmobile trailers and if the trailer is required to  have a sticker is the tow vehicle, reference is being made to cargo style snowmobile trailers and or cargo trailers used for personal use.Joe

It gets a little confusing....

  1. the total gross weight, registered gross weight (RGW) or manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating (MGVWR) of the vehicle exceeds 4,500 kg or 9,920 lbs.
  2. the combined weight of the vehicle and towed trailer or converter dolly exceeds 4,500 kg or 9,920 lbs

So essentially.... if your tow vehicle's registered weight (check your green registration card) you need that certificate (yellow sticker).  If your vehicle has the sticker...your trailer needs one as well.   If your loaded trailer and tow vehicle  exceed the limits...you need the sticker...

Wouldn't that be pretty much all "heavier" towed conveyances then?  Average SUVs and pickups already weigh 5000-6500 lbs.  Doesn't leave much for the trailer!  Many sled trailers would be over that limit.

You can actually register your truck's GVRW lower than what the manufacturer has... but god help you should the MTO weigh you and you're over.
