WHAT SAY IN COURT TO INCREASE CHANCES FOR SUCCESS. If the officer did everything right and there is no a violation on his part.

We 7 months in Canada. Pay paralegal expensive for us!
Location - in the month of November, he was stopped
police in a residential area - for 60 where the scab privyshenie
40. set (he was in a hurry for a meeting - not knowing the road late that
no wonder and I ran here)

with them he had no Canadian law - where
basically in two languages ​​all the information available.
In these 20 years of driving experience specified.

and from the Canadian documents he had only G1 Canadian law.
Insurance and Status

The officer wrote the ticket three.

The Court held in March - through an interpreter.
Disclosure request made. But suppose there all right.

As far as I understand - will increase insurance + very fine penalty ...
Points record ... this is very knock down. We'll have to abandon the car
which and so hardly contains - and without in any way in Canada. :(

The question is: Please write what that strategy is simple in court - but
effective - in an attempt to cancel the tickets in our situation - and penalties.
taking into account that communication through an interpreter.

What can I say - what reference.
We had not been in such position before so didnt know.
Should we agree guilt or not ...

Maybe there are options "speeding" shift to the other for violation if the Paying
of the minimum penalty - without penalties and not to affect the
insurance that we have and so not far from godly.

In general we are in a situation of despair. Please help advice.

First, welcome to Canada! I hope that settling in has gone smoothly for you.

It sounds like you have been charged with Speeding 60 km/h in a 40 km/h zone. If so, the offence is a 3 demerit point offence.

Unfortunately, no way can tell you what to say at court to win. However, I can provide a brief overview of what I would do were I representing on a similar case. The first step would be to file for and review a disclosure of the Prosecutor's evidence. Generally these disclosures are short and simple. Most legal defects stand out to a knowledgeable eye. If no legal argument exists to have the offence withdrawn. Then the decision has to be made either to proceed to trial or to negotiate for a 15 km/h over the speed limit lesser offence for 0 demerit points.

Not being retained by you and not having reviewed disclosure or spoken with you directly, I can not direct you on what to do or say at court on your own behalf.

In general, if I had a client charged a 20 km/h over the posted speed limit and there were no legal arguments to have the charge withdrawn, then negotiating to a lesser offence at 15 km/h over the posted speed limit would generally be the best possible resolution. The lesser offence would carry 0 demerit points and a smaller fine.
