Whether we travel on foot, by bicycle or any other mode, as soon as we enter upon a road we are affected by a complex web of common law decisions and legislation that shapes the privileges and responsibilities shared by road authorities and users alike. Halsbury's Roads, Highways and Bridges (2013 Reissue) volume is an invaluable resource to understand the issues surrounding the use of roads, including what constitutes a roadway or highway, restrictions on use, access to highways, ownership, opening and closing of highways, the duties of municipal and provincial/territorial authorities to maintain highways and sidewalks, liability for damages (including slips and falls), and remedies for damages. Topics covered include:
- Ownership and jurisdiction over the roadways in Canada
- The legislative and regulatory structure that governs roads, highways and bridges
- The legal right to use roadways
- Opening and closing of roadways
- Issues relevant to the repair of roadways
- Liability of users, owners and government
- Available remedies, special notice provisions and limitations to actions
- Enhanced contents
- A general table of contents to the level of chapter headings
- A detailed table of contents to the level of clause headings
- Detailed sectional contents set out within the commentary for each chapter and section
- References and abbreviations - an alphabetical listing of special references and abbreviations used in the volume, with an explanation of their meaning
- Selected secondary sources - setting out selected texts, articles, and other secondary sources pertaining to the subject that the reader may find to be relevant and helpful
