Nitrous now prohibited in Ontario

Not really Mazda 3 related, but may affect some 3 owners...

From Bill 203 of the Safer Roads for a Safer Ontario Act, 2007

Quote:
Nitrous oxide fuel systems prohibited

172.1 (1) No person shall drive or permit to be driven on a highway a motor vehicle manufactured or modified after its manufacture such that nitrous oxide may be delivered into the fuel mixture unless,

(a) the part of the fuel system that may connect to a canister, bottle, tank or pressure vessel capable of containing nitrous oxide can be clearly seen by looking at the interior or exterior of the motor vehicle;

(b) there is no canister, bottle, tank or pressure vessel connected to that part; and

(c) if the part of the fuel system that may connect to a canister, bottle, tank or pressure vessel capable of containing nitrous oxide is located inside the passenger compartment, there is no canister, bottle, tank or pressure vessel capable of containing nitrous oxide in the passenger compartment.

Same

(2) No person shall drive or permit to be driven on a highway a motor vehicle manufactured or modified after its manufacture such that nitrous oxide may be delivered into the fuel mixture unless,

(a) the part of the fuel system that may connect to a canister, bottle, tank or pressure vessel capable of containing nitrous oxide is completely disconnected from the part of the system that connects to the engine;

(b) the disconnection can be clearly seen by looking at the interior or exterior of the motor vehicle; and

(c) the disconnected parts cannot be reconnected from inside the passenger compartment.

Offence

(3) Every person who contravenes subsection (1) or (2) is guilty of an offence and on conviction is liable to a fine of not less than $500 and not more than $2,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both.

23. Subsection 214.1 (7) of the Act is amended by striking out “and in addition his or her licence or permit may be suspended for a period of not more than two years” at the end and substituting “and in addition his or her licence or permit may be suspended for a period of not more than the maximum period for which his or her licence could be ordered suspended by a court under section 130 or 172, as the case may be”.

24. Section 217 of the Act is amended by adding the following subsection:


Exceptions to release of motor vehicle

(4.1) A motor vehicle shall not be released under subsection (4) if it was removed, stored, detained or impounded pursuant to any provision of this Act other than subsection (4) of this section.

Re: Nitrous now prohibited in Ontario

Okay that law makes no sense. Well to run through #1 it basically says that the fuel system hookup has to be visible from the outside of the car and the bottle can be inside the passenger compartment. Sounds easy to me, take the hood off and mount the bottle in the trunk.

Oh and then it goes on to say in part 2 that you also have to have the hookup disconnect, have that disconnect visible and also can't be able to reconnect it in the passenger cabin.

#2 more or less contradicts #1. So seriously, either it is legal or it isn't to even have the hookup present. It makes it fairly plain it is illegal to drive with nitrous on your vehicle, but it doesn't make it clear if you can really drive on public roads with a system present on the car. That makes the burden of the law pretty brutal if you can't drive a vehicle with a hookup present unless it is clearly visible (basically means either you are driving a tractor or with no/clear hood on your car). Sucks mighty ass.

I can see banning it on public roads, but this law basically stats a hookup is illegal for all intents and purposes which means you couldn't drive your car to a track, hook the bottle up and run.

basically the law makes it impossible to use nitrous on public roads, it allows you to have it installed in such a way that you can use it at a private track, you just gotta hook up your bottle when you get there.

Except that the language of the law makes it sound like the hookup has to be visible either from the exterior of the interior of the car (I guess so it is easily verified that it is disconnected and also that the vehicle has a nitrous system). That is a heavy burden for the way a nitrous system is setup.

The law at least makes it sound like there is just about no resonable way to have a system on your vehicle even if it is disconnected to be hooked up when you reach a track.
