    I was reading through the safety regulations document that was amended on September 1, 2018 and noticed the following...

    Does anybody know when these rules come into effect? Im just curious because i know that wiring up this "switching" they're enforcing isnt going to be very fun for newly imported vehicles.

    Here is a link to the document: http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/PDF/C.R.C.,_c._1038.pdf

    I imagine that will effect new vehicles only? You see lots around that the DRLs shut off on the same side as the signal. Can you imagine of they started to actually enforce it, or the 'all cars MUST have DRLs', when clearly so many legal NADM cars here don't have them.

    It's like saying all new cars have to have back up cameras. All cars after X date do, but older cars coming in don't.

    What, you aren't looking forward to the day where the only car you can own is a Nissan Leaf, living in a refurbished shipping container stacked 10 cubes high and wearing a deodorant is banned?
