Hi there, looking for advice. My husband was involved in a collision a couple days ago and we're wondering which option would be best for us.
He was at fault: it was a construction zone, so it was stop-and-go. He looked down at his cell phone (I know, I know), didn't stop in time and crunched into the vehicle in front. He was going maybe 15 km/hr, but according to the looks of our CRV it looks like he was going 70! Their SUV was affected, but not all that much. He got slapped with a careless driving charge. The officer was very helpful, and was speaking to my husband about his options but he was so shaken up he couldn't really retain a lot of info. He says the officer was explaining the "crown" a lot, and that he specifically pointed out his (the officer's) name on the ticket.
Do we go with Option 1, 2 or 3? From the research I've done so far we do want to fight it, just not sure if it should be 2 or 3. But then again maybe 1 because we're wondering if he'll get penalized further for distracted driving? Thoughts?
