Have you ever stopped to consider the risk involved in handing your keys over to someone else? As the owner of a vehicle, you have significant responsibility for it when someone else is using it. Even if you were not present, something nasty can still come back and bite you.
The owner of a vehicle is responsible for any contravention of:
- the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) and Regulations
- the Transportation Act
- the Firearm Act when it involves the transport or use of firearms in your vehicle
- the traffic bylaws of a municipality
- the traffic laws of a treaty first nation
- prescribed parking laws
