Backing on highway ticket

Sun Nov 03, 2013 1:49 pm

I've had a clean record until recently see http://www.ontariohighwaytrafficact.com/topic5651.html . And this now brings me to the maximum points before suspension. So I'm really scared and I have to try not to get anything more.

I missed an exit on the highway and I stopped just a few meters ahead only. I pulled my car to the side near the barrier and began reversing at the side, not on the highway and did not obstruct traffic. As soon as I backed back on to the highway so I could go to the exit a cop came and stopped me and gave me a ticket.

Anything can be done over this since I wasn't directly on the highway. Traffic was low else I would not have attempted it. Can I claim I didn't back on the highway but from the exit as I couldn't make the turn or something?

Take the next exit and get back on the highway going in the opposite direction.
I know but the officer did not see me backing at the side I think. He saw me at the exit with reverse lights, I can just say I had to reverse to turn as I was too close to barrier or something? What happens if I do that?

I also reversed at the side almost touching the barrier and not on the highway.

I know I did a stupid thing though and nearly no one gets backing on highway tickets :( I know I'm not supposed to do this but I figured I wouldn't get caught as there were few cars and it was dark.

How should I plead?

Any ideas about my other thread?

It might matter.

Is there any point in requesting trial or should I just pay it? I personally don't think this one will stand much chance, its the other tickets that I think can be reduced or removed. This is just 2 points anyway.

I had to go in and "have the talk" one time.
You pass over your license and have to tell them a reason to give it back.

14 is real close Wow.

You will not what to that 2 times.

How was it? Did you get suspended? How many points you had? What reasons should I give?

This really sucks. This interview is after court trial if I chose that so I could delay it right?
