Increase Speed Limit of Highway 3 to 90 km/h

The southwestern section of King's Highway 3 is a heavily travelled link between Windsor and Leamington. Its design is that of a limited access roadway starting at the Essex Bypass with a wide alignment and no visual obstructions. Part of it is a four-lane divided roadway while the Essex to Leamington section only has two lanes, but is still limited access. The posted speed limit is 80 kph, which is identical to any ...more »

Regulate and enforce cyclists and e-bikes under HTA

We ALL have to learn to share the roadways, but we can only do it effectively and safely if we are all operating by the same set of rules of the road. Automobiles, pedestrians, cyclists and now those e-bike scooter things; all of which need to be specifically named, regulated and enforced by legislative/regulatory amendment to the Highway Traffic Act (HTA).

More flexible rules for E vehicles

The largest complaint I hear about low impact E-bikes/scooters from both users and car owners are their current power limits which impede traffic and leave users with no extra power to use evading a problem or even going up a steep hill. I propose that the current wattage restrictions and the 32kph maximum speed be modified so these vehicles can operate on busy urban streets with less problems for all users. Even ...more »

Mandatory ignition interlock device for drunk drivers

The Government of Ontario should require ALL those who have been convicted of impaired driving to get an ignition interlock device to prevent a vehicle from starting if their BAC exceeds 0.05%. The convicted should be required to pay the full cost for this device and its proper installation. If the court sentences you to get an interlock device, you will receive a notice of suspension from the MTO with instructions ...more »
