  • They may have a right to travel but there is no common-law right to drive a motor vehicle or ride a horse.

    Where it gets messy is someone trying to ride a horse or walk down a freeway. It appears reasonable that authorities can ban particular forms of travel on some roads that were designed and built for a specific purpose.

    There's also the issue of toll-roads which for hundreds if not thousands of years have allowed owners of the road to charge for access to that road.

      No, but riding a horse freely is an expectation, not something that has been defined in case law or common law as a right.

      You won't find anywhere common law that endorses or disapproves of horse riding but you will find plenty of examples of freedom of travel.

    • @DEADBEEF ah, I see what you are getting at I think. you're saying that in common law we have the right to walk. correct? but not ride horses, skate boards, bikes or cars? stuff like that?

      If you travel down a road you have a variety of modes of transport. You can walk, ride a bike or horse, drive, or catch a bus.

      The fact you have to pay a fare on the bus does not make your right to travel be infringed. The fact you have to get a license to drive a car also doesn't.

      The fact you have to buy your bike is an even better example. It's simply unrelated to your right to travel.

    • @DEADBEEF I will keep looking but I havent found the part in the common law yet where it says you need a license to drive. the best that I could find so far is that if you are involved in commerce you do need all documentation. I'll keep looking. could you point it out to me please? do you know where to find it? that would be a great help. thank you.
