Parked Vehicles and Snow Removal

Snowed in CarsThere's nothing like a bit of extreme weather to create problems for drivers. Usually it comes in the form of a collision but lately it stems from too much snow and the inability to park properly or to move a vehicle that was parked legally before the snow fell.

Eye Catching or Eyesore?

Scrap Car"Cash for Scrap Vehicles" reads the slogan spray painted on the side of a brightly coloured rust bucket parked precariously on the bank between a fence and the side street. It is visible from the main highway as you drive by and if you look carefully at it you can also see the telephone number to call to take advantage of the service.

Abandoned Vehicles in Rural Areas

Abandoned VehicleWe live in a rural area and came home to find a vehicle parked near but not obstructing our driveway. It appears to have broken down. A number of days later and the vehicle is still waiting to be retrieved by its owners.

Parking on the Wrong Side

Park Wrong SideHave you noticed the growing tendency of lazy drivers who are now crossing over oncoming lanes of traffic to stop in front of particular addresses?

Parking Permits for People with Disabilities

Handicap SymbolAn article on the abuse of handicapped parking stalls and the abuse of persons with or without tags would be appreciated. I assume that the permit is issued to the person who is disabled. In many cases, the driver is not disabled. What are the regulations concerning the driver of a vehicle who is not handicapped and the use of the handicapped parking stall?

The Roadside Camper

Roadside Camping

Spring must be on the minds of many as I have already received a request for information on camping beside the highway. This reader wants to know if there are any rules in BC that would stop someone from camping on the side of the highway overnight.

Parking on the Shoulder

park on shoulderIn light of a number of somewhat recent accidents involving vehicles (buses) rear-ending other vehicles (trucks) parked on the side of the road perhaps you could address the rules that apply to such parking. In addition I am curious about the flagging or flares required to warn drivers of these parked vehicles. This reader raises two good points of discussion because of the dangers involved.

Parking Lots

Parking Lot"Are there specific rules of the road for parking lots?" asks a reader. "If so please clarify them." This is an important question, because a parking lot is a hybrid composed of private property and a highway as defined in the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA). Both the property owner and the traffic rules control drivers who use them.
