A light, humourous article about how a Canadian attorney successfully fought a traffic ticket:

English-only traffic sign ruled illegal

Toronto A justice of the peace has ruled that a "no left turn" sign in Toronto is unenforceable because it is not written in both English and French.

The ruling Monday by Justice Alice Napier could result in thousands of traffic tickets being dismissed.

Lawyer Jennifer Myers argued that a traffic sign near Bay and Dundas streets violated the Highway Traffic Act and the French Languages Service Act because it was not in both official languages.

Napier agreed at a night court hearing Monday, and threw out a ticket issued to Myers for making an illegal left turn.

Myers does not speak French....


:D
