Actually this is legal requirement under the HTA (highway traffic act). Almost had a leg broken by a hamilton Police officer when I asked why he wanted to see my ID.


Really? * google google google *

Well, almost: it appears that one is required to identify oneself, but that simply stating one's name and address is sufficient. From the HTA section H8 218 ...

Cyclist to identify self 218. (1) A police officer who finds any person contravening this Act or any municipal by-law regulating traffic while in charge of a bicycle may require that person to stop and to provide identification of himself or herself. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 218 (1).

Idem (2) Every person who is required to stop, by a police officer acting under subsection (1), shall stop and identify himself or herself to the police officer. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 218 (2).

Idem (3) For the purposes of this section, giving one’s correct name and address is sufficient identification. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 218 (3).
