comment Visiting Canada when in US on a B1 visa
@Blackbird57: Even if it weren't multiple entry, they can re-enter the US on automatic revalidation as long as their I-94 is still valid.

comment US Citizen visiting Canada with a pending passport
"Or will I be trapped in Canada?" You will not be trapped in Canada. A US citizen cannot be denied entry to the US as long as you can satisfactorily prove your US citizenship, e.g. with a US birth certificate and a photo ID, etc. Though you can expect to get some stern talking-to by the immigration officers.

comment US Citizen visiting Canada with a pending passport
"So, there is no guarantee that I will have my passport in time for the trip even if I did pay for the expedited process." You can do it directly at a passport agency for even faster processing. See travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports/… under "If you are traveling within 2 weeks or need a passport for a foreign visa within 4 weeks and:"

comment Dual citizenship entering Canada with expired Canadian passport
@Blackbird57: They could. For example, if the passport says you were born in Canada, then that pretty much implies you are a Canadian citizen.

comment What's the actual speed limit on highways in California?
"In California, as in most jurisdictions, the posted speed limit is the maximum allowable speed." This is not true. California has two speed laws. 1) The Maximum Speed Law says you cannot drive faster than 65, or 55 on a two-lane undivided highway, except where posted as 70. 2) The Basic Speed Law says you cannot drive faster than is safe for the conditions. Neither law refers to the "posted speed limit" (except for the 70 exception).

comment Renting a car from private persons in California
There is FlightCar (flightcar.com), which is not exactly what you're looking for, as you are still renting from the company, but you are renting private cars that people parked there.

comment Will I be eligible for an Emergency Travel Document?
@Calchas: It also says a US permanent resident with a green card doesn't need a passport to go to the US from anywhere (which is true as the US government is concerned). But in fact pretty much no airline will board a passenger on an international flight without a passport; and the US government does not force any airline to do so. The fact is that the requirements for airlines to let you board are often very different from the requirements that the destination country have to let you enter.

comment Will I be eligible for an Emergency Travel Document?
"You will be admitted to the United Kingdom with your expired passport." That assumes the airline will let him on the plane to go to the UK in the first place.

comment Traveling to the U.S. after a 10 Year Ban
@phoog: What I said is not reasoning. It is the official policy that defines "unlawful presence".

comment Traveling to the U.S. after a 10 Year Ban
I believe that you actually didn't have a ban, because Canadian citizens who are admitted without an I-94 (which is the usual case) do not automatically accrue "unlawful presence" on a given date because they have no I-94 date to exceed. And if you had no "unlawful presence", you didn't have an unlawful presence ban upon leaving the US.

comment Is there any way to easily check in advance if a country has exit immigration at the airport?
@AndrewFerrier: If they are transparent then they are not exit checks.
