Highway Traffic Act Roulette #2

By , September 10, 2007

Section 77 of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act declares:

Every person travelling on a highway with a sleigh or sled drawn by a horse or other animal shall have at least two bells attached to the harness or to the sleigh or sled in such a manner as to give ample warning sound.

They must provide ample warning because, of course, horse-drawn sleighs are the real menace on our roads.

    And don’t forget, any jerk caught sleighing about without bells will think twice about getting some the next time, after they have received their whopping punishment:

    (2) Every person who contravenes subsection (1) is guilty of an offence and on conviction is liable to a fine of not more than $5. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 77 (2).

    I’m surprised there also isn’t a provision that the sleigh/sled driver must also sing “Jingle Bells” or “Winter Wonderland” during their trek.
