    How did they justify writing you a $4200 ticket if you weren't breaking any laws?

    Hi Ratfink64,

    I've advised people on here for years that if your in Canada you are in line for for up to $5,000 in fines for operating an unlicensed, uninsured motor vehicle if you have a gasoline engine on a bicycle.. Federal law in Canada.

    Only electric bikes not over 500w and not over 32 Km or 20mph. You just hit a police officer who knew the law. Sorry to hear it happened to you.

    Steve.
