Stop sign violation - in park n ride

I got a stop sign ticket in a park n ride $150. I thought parking lots were governed by the HTC? It was 2:30 am and the lot was empty. This guy just had nothing else to do. I rolled through it yes but it was a parking lot. Do I have a leg to stand on?

If he charged you under a municipal by law, then it's good. But the highway traffic act doesn't cover private property. Only a few offences under the HTA can be laid anywhere, but a stop sign isn't one.

Following up on this, it's important to remember that the definition of "highway" in the HTA is fairly broad and often can be interpreted to cover situations like this, including car pools and sometimes thru ways in parking lots.

“highway” includes a common and public highway, street, avenue, parkway, driveway, square, place, bridge, viaduct or trestle, any part of which is intended for or used by the general public for the passage of vehicles and includes the area between the lateral property lines thereof
