Northbound on 176th heading for Hwy 1 I attracted the attention of a Surrey marked cruiser. I figured out pretty quickly that he wanted me and he finally pulled me over just onto Hwy 1 westbound.
Seems he didn't like my headlight modulator. I told him it was legal etc. and he asked if it was factory equipment, which of course it wasn't. I told him I had a copy of the pertinent section of the MVA somewhere on my bike and would find it for him.
It took me a minute but it was under my seat, under the stock tool kit. I walked over to the cruiser and gave it to him. He questioned it as he didn't know what section section 5.6 of the Technical Standards Document No. 108, Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations referred to. He wasn't sure if he was going to believe me or not, so he said he would issue a Notice and Order. I told him I thought that was a mean thing to do as it would cost me $100 to have my bike inspected. I told him I'd rather have the VT for flashing my headlights so I could beat it in court.
He said thanks for the info and would I please wait by my bike.
He came back a minute later without the Notice and Order or VT. Said he'd decided not to do either and wished me a safe ride.
So, here's my question. Are there any documents I could produce that would make his decision easier?
Now I'm off to buy lottery tickets!
