Hey did you get a chance to practice your driving on a deserted, cop-free roadway?

if you're still looking for somewhere to drive, try heading out west and going north to like king road, or even mayfield... nice quiet roads, and i've never seen cops out there...

Most of us do the lazy pronunciation: "Turonno"

Sypher, is it legal to make right turns on a red light in Ottawa? I had to drive through Ottawa to get to the electronic music festival site in the woods north of the city, and I got stuck for an hour in one way street hell, made a bunch of illegal u turns trying to get back to the point at which i got lost, and got in trouble for turning right on red light.

It should be legal...the only place that I know where it's not is here in Montreal (I just moved here from near Ottawa, remember) :lol: I don't understand why you'd get in trouble for that...maybe that area or that light was an exception? :? One way streets really can be horrible if you're not sure of where you're going, though (although I suppose it could be argued that they make things a lot simpler :P)!
It's not what's on the outside, it's what's under the hood

I don't know what I was thinking today. I was waiting at a red light to make a right turn. For a couple seconds, I thought I wasn't allowed to do that. I'm so lucky there were cars coming down the road though - nobody honked at me.
