Art triumphs over the law

flinstone-car.jpgLast October, a car remade by artist Michel de Broin went on it maiden voyage in Toronto, only to be pulled over by the cops. Turns out, they don’t like the idea of pedal-powered cars. Even though the artist wasn’t in the car at the time, he was the one facing a ticket since it was registered in his name. But last week, his lawyers defeated that ticket in court, arguing that there was no evidence that the car was unsafe. The Justice of the Peace agreed, saying it was pretty similar to a bike and didn’t look to be a “dangerous vehicle.”

Frankly, I think it is dangerous and disruptive to traffic to operate it in the middle of the road like that.

Now if it was small to ride on the shoulder or curb like a bike, then I would agree with the judge.
