Is it illegal to drive around without your passenger's seat?



(In Ontario)

I don't see a reason why that would be illegal.

no, it is not illeagal. I've had cops try to tell me that this is illeagal (on account of removing seatbelts), but i didn't find anything in the HTA that says its illeagal.

So this is kinda like how DRLs aren't required in Ontario..

But it would attract negative attention from the cops if you don't comply.

DLRs are required in Ontario, who told you they weren't? Sure, you can drive around without them and you wont get hassled, but they're still required by law.

The seats however, are not required. You're allowed to carry as many passengers as there are seatbelts in the car. removing the passenger seat just means one less passenger. Perfectly legal.

By my understanding, it is law for new vehicles to be sold with DRLs here in Ontario but no where does it mention in our Highway Traffic Act that we must have them.

Therefore we cannot be ticketed for not having them. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

To the original poster, I was driving with no passenger seat yesterday and passed by at least 5 cop cars. I didn't get hassled or anything about it.

No its not.

Two weekends ago I had taken all passenger seats out... got pulled over for my tail lights... again... Cop didn't seem to care all i had was the driver seat. And yes he did look, asked what i was doing to them then told me to have a good night.
