What's with the white police cruiser today?

Post by FrancoFun » Wed Aug 05, 2015 1:53 pm

Anyone else see a white cruiser around town today? Initially, I thought it was MTO enforcement, but the vehicle has driven up and down Algonquin all day today (I saw it three times already) and pulled over at least one late model pick up truck, which is typically not the type of vehicle the MTO goes after. Anyone have a clue which law enforcement agency they're from?

Why is it they never set up inspection stations here years ago like they did down South? Sounds like yet another money grab in untouched waters to me.

We do not need to pass an emissions test in northern Ontario to pass a safety check and register a vehicle. So why the tests and tickets?

Good point, Kramer. I always thought that transports and such still needed to be tested though.

Oh course, you Northerners have all kinds of perks and get away with everything. [fist

Not aware of any spec enforcement initiatives by gov agencies in Timmins.... However keep in mind that certain gov agencies (MTO, MNRF) do have authority to conduct traffic stops on vehicles.
