I wonder if the 407 camera can capture the new blue plates?
Do motorcycles get blue plates??? I have seen them in cars so far but not on any bikes

I wonder how many riders on 407 actually pay. Seems like a lot of no plate riders going into 407 entrance.

Has the gov changed their mind on Motorcycles and HOV lanes? I swear the signs where changed on the QEW with the motorcycle removed. Also noticed on Don Mills, the motorcycle is greyed out, almost like a poor cover up job, and not black or noticable like the other vehicle icons.

You're confusing municipal and provincial HOV.

Highways we are good to go.

Cities pick and choose which roads and from what I can tell they remove and add motorcycles at different times of year/years. I pretend not to notice the motorcycle emblem is grayed out and ill argue the ticket. Municipal HOV is a by law ticket, so not a moving violation.

not being well versed in legalese, what is the difference in penalty between a by-law infraction and a moving violation?
thanks!

use of the HOV lanes in the city are not under the HTA. They are under a city by-law, so it's akin to getting a ticket for littering.

HOV lanes on the highway are there under the HTA, so you get a ticket under the HTA which = insurance hit.

Front fender folded back.
Otherwise the bike didnt appear at a glance to be too bad.
No ambulance etc on scene at that time.

That's never good. They dont normally do reconstruction unless someone is really hurt.
