Ban on pit bulls in Ontario 10 years old

Ten years ago Ontario put into place a law that bans pit bulls. Under the Dog Owner’s Liability Act, American pit bull terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, Staffordshire bull terriers and pit bull terriers cannot be purchased, sold or bred. After the law was enacted, ownership of the animals was also prohibited, though animals that fit this breed that were alive before the law went into effect were grandfathered in and are considered “restricted.” Accordingly, they must be spayed or neutered and cannot be in public without a leash and muzzle. 

Defect in trucks prompts recall of 250,00o vehicles

There are multiple reasons why a motor vehicle accident might occur. While the first thing that may come to mind when someone hears that a crash has occurred is negligence on the part of a driver, there are other factors that could be to blame, or be a factor. One of those factors is defects with the vehicles involved. When a vehicle does not work the way it is supposed to it is possible that the driver could lose control and be in an accident. Other times, while a defect in a vehicle might not be to blame for the accident itself, it could be what causes those involved to suffer injuries.

As children return to school pedestrian traffic increases

In the fall there are many changes that take place in households with school aged children. The biggest is of course that children go back to school after a summer vacation.

This traffic consists not only of vehicles, but pedestrians as well. Some of those pedestrians are small children who may be difficult for other drivers to see.
