rently I did not make a full stop at a stop sign. Ticket was for $35.00 and I was advised I would not lose any points. The police officer mentioned he downgraded the ticket from the HTA & charge of $120 to a municipal charge of $35 & no points.
I know even if you lose no demerit points under the HSA your insurance copmany is still aware of the charge. Question is would my insurance company be notified of a Ottawa city bylaw ticket for $35 with no points?
Trying to figure out if I should just pay this or fight it. I don't have any other tickets on my record now just trying to keep my record ( & insurance rates) low.
If the charge doesn't carry any demerit points, it's probably best just to pay it. Unless you've got a lot of free time or it's a matter of principle, that's a pretty good deal for a stop sign infraction. Lots of places don't have those handy bylaws meaning you'd be looking at a $110 fine and 3 demerit points.
