One thought on “Coleman’s Notes: Painting the Roadway in Protest

  1. Question: No-win optics aside, is the issue at hand at least in part the Highway Traffic Act’s regulation of road markings (s.182-184), which might be considered “traffic control devices” and their wilful defacement/concealment an offence, regardless of the value of the message or grip coefficient of the paint used? If so, would the City and HPS, who apparently held space for this protest and facilitated the message’s installation over 90 minutes, have been accessories to the offence had they opened the street without first restoring the road to its pre-intervention state?
