ID 4 the coppers;

the secret is of course to be nice and cooperative, that way its nothing against them or you when you stick to your rights:

IDENTIFICATION
218. (1) A police officer finding anyone contravening this (HTA) Act or any municipal
by-law regulating traffic while riding a bicycle may require that person to stop
and provide identification. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 218 (1).
(3)…Giving one's correct name and address is sufficient identification. R.S.O.
1990, c. H.8, s. 218 (3).


edit- Kavermich'e example of using the UCI license is a good idea, shows you aren't lying when you insist on providing from memory things like name and address

And to follow up on that: 56. (1) The Lieutenant Governor in Council may make regulations providing for a demerit point system for drivers of motor vehicles or of street cars. 2005, c. 26, Sched. A, s. 5.

So unless you're driving a very large bicycle that may be mistaken for a street car, ask the happy fuzz to please write "bicycle" on your ticket. Demerits only count for motor vehicles and streetcars.

This from the Cyclometer

yclists and Demerit Points

by Barbara Wentworth

Does the demerit point system apply to cycling offences under the Highway Traffic (HTA)? In a word, NO. But does it happen? Yes, it can. Here's how it works.

Cyclists and motorists can be charged under the HTA, with similar fines applying to both ($90 for most infractions). Section 56 of the HTA allows the province to cancel or suspend drivers' licenses through a demerit point system. However, this applies only to infractions committed while driving a motor vehicle or streetcar.

In order to avoid demerit points inadvertently being assigned to your drivers license for an infraction committed on your bicycle, the following must occur:

* The police officer laying the charge must write "bicycle" in the vehicle type box on the Provincial Offenses Notice.
* If you go to court, the courts must indicate "bicycle" in the vehicle type box on the conviction notice.

If the Provincial Offenses Notice or the conviction notice is received by the Ministry of Transportation without the "bicycle" designation, demerit points will be assigned to the driving record of the individual. If the ministry is notified, the error will be corrected. Better still, follow the rules and you won't get a ticket in the first place.

to the last one.

Yeah, the auction was just posted and there was no pic, just a description and a decent BIN for the frame, an uncut Profile Design carbon fork, a Weyless carbon seat-post, a track chain and a headset, so I pulled the trigger and the seller is sending it USPS so I might even dodge the duties on it, we shall see. The description of the sloping top-tube got me thinking it might be a Pulse, that was why I asked about yours, but I think I'll be happy either way, I have a soft spot for black GTs
sounds like a potentially good find... post pics when you can... this has that what's behind door number 3 anticipation

I dropped $100 bones each, mostly cause eyefloater promised to clean my Ciocc with a toothbrush for a month, but I challenge everyone here to drop $20 or more on these guys. Split it between them or just empty your pockets and give what you can. Even the price of a beer will help, like you really need it you chubby walrus. Apart from being able to hold it over their heads for the rest of their lives, you're supporting a good cause. Chances are someone you know or you yourself may be influenced by the effects of this deadly disease.

So pony up, buttercup. For the half the price of a new jersey, a couple of beers, or a massage (sans happy ending) from operator, you can make a difference, feel good about yourself, and know these boys are going to earn every red cent as they gftg.

Do it. You know you want to...

So this is a pretty awesome song.

If you were on the CV two times ago ( when we went to the Kensington Mrkt parking garage) you probably remember me yelling "Short, short, shorty short, short, short, shorty, shorty shorts..."

Most of you will probably find it really anoying and want to turn it off but just give it a chance.

It is fuç|<ing hard core.

Short Shorts

More Joe Maximus songs
