Court sides with province on Ontario's speed limiter law
from Truck News
The provincial court of appeal has ruled that speed limiters, which prevent trucks from going faster than 105 km/h, are legal in Ontario, upholding earlier passed provincial legislation. Justice Peter Lauwers ruled this recently in the case involving St. Catharine's truck driver Gene Michaud, who had been ticketed for not having his speed limiter set properly back in 2009. He argued that traveling at 105 km/h was unsafe and violated his charter rights. He successfully argued his case in 2012, claiming the speed limiter didn’t give him room to maneuver in case he need to for safety reasons. Then, the province appealed and the decision was overturned in 2014.
