A woman successfully beat a traffic ticket she received for violating the "no left turn" law in Toronto. She claimed that the no left turn sign violated the law because it wasn't bilingual, a requirement of the French Languages Services Act. It didn't seem to matter to the judge that the defendant doesn't speak French. Now they may have to invalidate a bunch of tickets, because none of the street signs are written in both languages. It will also cost a pretty penny to correct the signs. Thank God we don't live in Canada.
