I've seen less and less cops on the roads...is it just me? They seem to be more lenient too
Motor vehicle act...
"73 (1) A peace officer may require the driver of a motor vehicle to stop and the driver of a motor vehicle, when signalled or requested to stop by a peace officer who is readily identifiable as a peace officer, must immediately come to a safe stop."
I am not sure a disguised police officer in an unmarked is considered "readily identifiable as a peace officer", so accordingly to the MVA, I wouldn't have to stop. If they caught me...
Probably won't work, but how can someone be "identifiable" if they are in disguise? Can the court argue the police are not really that good at disguises therefore you must stop? If you are pulled over by a unmarked or disguised officer, they are contravening the MVA and by the courts to allow such contradiction, the "appearance of justice" is compromised and is a charter violation which trumps all arguments. But again, operation a motor vehicle is a controlled "privilege" so it is allowed to be monitored in any way to ensure safety. I am just not sure if a charter works if officers purposely try to fool, even if on road. If unmarked travelling close, an argument that the officer was guilty of entrapment by his driving style that enticed erratic traffic flow/
ya know, if you guys are gonna hide then we should have jammers. Make it sporting and not shooting fish in the barrel.
