Highway Traffic Act Definitions
Page 24: The margin glossary definition of “vehicle” should read:
includes a motor vehicle, trailer, traction engine, farm tractor, road-building machine, bicycle, and any vehicle drawn, propelled, or driven by any kind of power, including muscular power, but does not include a motorized snow vehicle or a streetcar
Page 24: The margin glossary of “motor vehicle” should read:
includes automobiles, motor-assisted bicycles (mopeds), and motorcycles (which includes motor scooters), unless otherwise indicated in the HTA, as well as other vehicles propelled by anything other than muscular power, but does not include snowmobiles, farm tractors, self-propelled implements of husbandry (such as reapers and combines), road-building machinery, streetcars, and traction engines
Beginning at bottom of page 24: The passage should read:
Motor Vehicle, Section 1
The definition of motor vehicle includes automobiles, motor-assisted bicycles (mopeds), and motorcycles (which includes motor scooters), unless otherwise indicated in the HTA. While the definition includes motorized bicycles, power-assisted bicycles are classed with bicycles, generally, as vehicles. A power-assisted bicycle has a rechargeable, battery-run electric motor that assists the rider to pedal up steep grades, but does not become a sole source of power. Power-assisted bicycles are used in public bike rental programs in many European cities, and have been introduced in bike rental schemes in some urban areas in Canada. The key to treating power-assisted bicycles as vehicles rather than as motor vehicles is that the bicycle can be pedaled using muscular power, a point made clear by the Ontario Court of Appeal in the case of R v Pizzacalla (2014 ONCA 706). In this case, what appeared to be a power-assisted bike with pedals was classed as a motor vehicle because the pedals, although attached, were unusable. Also in this case, because Mr. Pizzacalla was found to be driving a motor vehicle rather than a vehicle, and as he had been disqualified from driving a motor vehicle for 3 years, he could be charged with driving while disqualified under s 259(1) of the Criminal Code (CC). If the bike had been merely power-assisted and, therefore, classed as a vehicle, he could have driven it about all he liked, whether he had a valid driver’s licence or not.
Although the definition of “motor vehicle” includes other vehicles propelled by anything other than muscular power, it does not include the following:
- motorized snow vehicles (snowmobiles),
- farm tractors,
- self-propelled implements of husbandry (SPIH) (farm equipment such as reapers and combines),
- road-building machinery,
- motor vehicles running only on rails (streetcars),
- traction engines, and
- power assisted bicycles (pab).
You can remember which vehicles are excluded by using the mnemonic device “snowfirst and pab.”
The definition of “motor vehicle,” with the “snowfirst and pab” exclusions, is generally used for rules regarding vehicle permits, driver’s licences, and equipment requirements under the HTA. It is narrower and more restrictive than the definition of “vehicle.” The “snowfirst and pab” exclusions are regulated under other legislation (for example, The Motorized Snow Vehicles Act covers snowmobiles), or are left unregulated.
