Without the inspections that once were the norm, it is now on the officers patrolling to "catch" these violators, whereas before, a lot were caught (and kept off the road presumptively) when the state inspections were still around.

I was wondering what you mean when you say you don't need a license to travel? You do need one to operate a motor vehicle right? I live in Tampa
"driver" as "1. A person who steers and propels a vehicle.
"driver" means a person driving or in charge of a vehicle and includes the operator of a motor vehicle;
"person" includes a body corporate or politic, and party;
"motor vehicle" means a vehicle, as herein defined, which is propelled or driven otherwise than by muscular power
64 Subject to Section 65 and subsection (6) of Section 75, no person shall operate any motor vehicle upon a highway in the Province unless such person has a valid driver's license under the provisions of this Act for the type or class of vehicle being driven. R.S., c. 293, s. 64.
a "person" is a fictitious legal entity, NOT a human being.
a "vehicle" is, by definition, commercial.
these are direct quotes from the motor vehicle act.
notice the use of person.
sorry, but i'm not a "person" i'm a human being.
all of these statutes and acts apply to "persons" NOT "human beings"
The 5th edition of "BLD" was the last "BLD" edition to contain case-decisional law or legal precedent. All editions after the 5the edition - the 6th, 7th, 8th, and now 9th, do not contain case-decisional law or legal precedent. Judges do not use the 6th, 7th, 8th, or 9th edition of "BLD" so why should you? Use what the judges use!

the definition of "person" i quoted is directly found in the motor vehicle act, not black's law dictionary.
here ya go nslegislature.ca...
why do you think in the motor vehicle act they specifically change the definition of "vehicle"?
i know all the way up to edition 7 "person" is defined as a legal entity. i haven't checked the 8th.edit on 7-2-2013 by Bob Sholtz because: (no reason given)
black's law dictionary 5th edition states that "person" in general usage means human being, HOWEVER, in statues it means a firm, labor organizations, partnerships, associations, corporations, etc.
You do realize that the motor vehicle act you keep referring to is the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act and has no bearing outside of Nova Scotia.
"state" means any state in the United States of America and includes the District of Columbia;
