Default will it happen here too?

Bill 241 2002 - The Ontario Road Safety Act, 2002 - Amendments to the Highway Traffic Act -"An Act to enhance safety and mobility on Ontario's roads"

The wording of sections of this new legislation that the Ontario Government has coming for the crack down on so-called "street racers" has vague references to equipment "commonly used in racing" that could affect any law abiding members of our community. A police officer's opinion is all that it requires to classify a car as able to compete. ALL MUSCLE CARS, BRITISH AND OTHER SPORTS CARS and a lot more, contaim parts that could be construed this way. It's not just the modified cars that are involved.

The SVAO urges you to write (hand signed letter with stamp and envelope) or fax their M.P.P., The Premier, and the Minister of Transportation on this very important issue. Correspondence with your original signature has the most impact. You might also try to phone or meet with your M.P.P. to personally express your concerns over this Bill.

We ask that Part X, Section 172.2 of the proposed Road Safety Act, 2002 be removed from the legislation, and suggest that to achieve the goal of reducing or eliminating illegal street racing, that more targeted enforcement and penalties for illegal activities be this section's replacement
Ontario, Canada Bill Threatens Motor Vehicle Performance, Functional and
Styling Equipment.

The Ontario, Canada Ministry of Transportation has introduced legislation (Bill 241) containing a provision (Section 172.2) to ban certain automotive parts, substances and equipment that the Ministry claims are used in street racing. This measure is primarily directed at equipment that boosts engine performance (most notably nitrous oxide), but could result in the ban or limitation of a range of motor vehicle equipment, including functional and styling equipment on all types of vehicles. Under the measure, regulations would be issued designating substances, parts and equipment covered under the ban.

We urge you to write, call, Fax or E-Mail Your Members of the Ontario Provincial Parliament immediately to oppose this Bill.

Bill 241 (Section 172.2) ignores the fact that most performance equipment is designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.

Bill 241 (Section 172.2) is purposely vague and does not supply regulators with a clear standard to enforce, allowing them to make subjective and arbitrary judgments on whether or not a specific piece of equipment should be banned.

Bill 241 (Section 172.2) fails to recognize that certain performance equipment can make a vehicle safer by improving its ability to merge, pass, travel uphill, etc.

Bill 241 (Section 172.2) would make it difficult for hobbyists to replace factory equipment with more durable, better performing options.

Bill 241 (Section 172.2) makes the erroneous assumption that enthusiasts who equip their vehicles with aftermarket parts are involved in illegal street racing and would unfairly restrict their right to personalize their vehicles.

Seat beats are also "equipment commonly used in racing".

And if that act gets passed they'd still be able to street race with a stock car.
