Got pulled over this morning (cops just love this car), and got a warning. Would have been an 85$ ticket. Apparently under section 63 of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act:

Vehicles with right hand drive

63. Every vehicle that is equipped with a right hand drive shall, unless it is equipped with a mechanical or electrical signal device as described in subsection 142 (6), have prominently displayed on the rear thereof, in bold face letters of not less than 50 millimetres in height and of a colour which is in contrast to that of the vehicle, the words,

“RIGHT HAND DRIVE VEHICLE”.

R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 63.

R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 63.

(6) A mechanical or electrical signal device shall clearly indicate the intention to turn, shall be visible and understandable during day-time and night-time from the front and from the rear of the vehicle for a distance of 30 metres, and shall be self-illuminated when used at any time from one-half hour after sunset to one-half hour before sunrise. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 142 (6).


So in other words...If you RHD car has turn signals, you do not need to have the RHD sticker on your car :)

stupid cops just don't know the laws they are trying to enforce and want to give people a hard time

I keep these sections printed out and in the glove box of my car, since all Ontario cops don't know the laws behind RHD cars.
