Kind of an aside here, but if you're riding a motorized vehicle out on a hunting trail, you are not allowed to carry a loaded firearm. The prohibition even applies to a foot-powered bicycle.

So for some purposes a bike (or an e-scooter for that matter), is classed as a vehicle.

I see no reason why e-scooters shouldn't be licensed, and at the very least a written test passed. Something like the tests given for small boat operators.

and yet the bad driving continues, and it's the drivers that cause the carnage. Licensing riders is something serious riders discuss and are all for, since we too hope it will get rid of some of the idiots. It doesn't mesh with the policy of encouraging bike riding tho. And, many of the bad riders in Vancouver are homeless/street people who don't care about any fine or license suspension. The police do a bad enough job patrolling driver infractions except speeding on nice sunny days if traffic is not too heavy - they're all over that. I doubt they'd be thrilled to be pushed to enforce bike riding more vigorously. The do it during bike month, enforce silly rules, then forget about it the other 11 months.

If it makes Cealon good that those bastard cyclists are now licensed, well maybe it will have accomplished something. But he'll probably still see a lot of riders behaving badly, and if he looks around he'll see the same for his fellow drivers.


Of course bad driving continues - I'm but one out of hundreds of thousands in my city alone. It's just like bikers - not all of them are dumbasses who do stupid things, just some of them.

A licensing system would at least introduce some accountability via the possibility (however rare it may be) that they could get fined from not following the rules of the road.

Bah, there's too many licences already. By the same argument, you could licence pedestrians. But I guess I shouldn't be giving teh government any ideas. :lol:

They already have licenses - it's called government ID (there are a wide variety of types).

How do you think cops give tickets to people for jaywalking? It's not like people wear nametags on their jackets. :lol:

Well, problem is if you don't have ID, you can be arrested. Nothing like being cuffed for jaywalking. Bin der dun dat. ha ha ha

When I was in Edmonton back in '87, I was flabbergasted that you could only get beer in 12's. On the plus side, it tasted a helluva lot better than the dreck that was brewed in Ontario.


You should have put a smiley after the last part too. :wink:

Maybe it was the company that made it taste better. Everybody knows that Ontarians are self-centered assholes and they're no fun to drink with. :twisted:

Not at all. Think about it. Beer brewed from fresh, clean glacier water or beer brewed from dirty, green Lake Ontario or St.Lawrence Seaway water.

And FYI, I may be an asshole but I'm not self-centered :P

Give those Westerners time. They'll be brewing their beer from filtered tar sands tailings pond water. :mrgreen:

Yep, this is definitely a Canadian forum. . . starts out with a honk about an American polititian's comments and ends up as a technical discussion about BEER !!

[B-o]
