Wheels.ca: Pedal car meets the law

Reminiscent of the Flintstone’s car, the “Shared Propulsion Car” is a 1986 Buick Regal that has been converted to a pedal car as part of an art installation by Montreal artist Michel de Broin. Last fall, it ran afoul of the law for safety violations and the case will be heard in a Toronto court Thursday April 3, 2008.

    Isn’t it illegal to impede traffic on the street in Canada?

    “You are not being close to being legal.” Let me tell you rookie cop boy, last time I checked, a 4-occupant human powered quadricycle is perfectly legal on the roads of Canada.

    That bike cop got it right. One doesn’t need to carry a license for operating a MOTOR vehicle to operate that.

    On the other hand the operator of the quadricycle mess it up BIG time by simply calling his vehicle a “car”. That is NOT A “car”, and that’s why he won in the court.

    @feastjapan The police where NOT doing their job here.

    The cop was been a complete ass. WTF was he asking the person for a license? There is NO license for a pedal car, any more than there is a license for a pedal driven bicycle, tandem, tricycle or quadricycle. It’s NOT a motor vehicle.
