Tales from the Legal Code of Quebec

Did y'all know that until April 15th of this year, it was illegal to have a GPS in your car?

I joked with my friend last night that she should have a GPS so she won't get lost when she goes to my place. She said she has one, but doesn't use it in Quebec because they're illegal here.

Turns out, she wasn't all that wrong since the law only changed very recently.

I do suspect it's a case of the law not keeping up with technology, though, because the law said that it is illegal to keep a screen of some sort where the driver can see it. An exemption needed to be made for GPS units.

Took them long enough.
