What happened was, this is my first accident, I was driving down highway 11 in heavy traffic, towing 2 seadoos (very heavy) i was doing between 30 and 40 km/h, the guy infront of me hit his brakes, i hit mine, and due to the weight of the load and my truck combines, my brakes locked up and i slid into him, only doing about 5km/h when i hit him. Minor damage, trunk was smushed in a bit and left tail light broken, No damage to me and no injuries at all. I left about 3 car lengths ahead of me while driving and actually almost didnt hit him.
Now, my question, on the ticket and accident report i got, there are MANY mistakes, they are: - My middle and last name spelt wrong, My date of birth wrong, My vehicle model wrong, number of passangers in my vehicle wrong, (i named all the people and gave info, so there is written proof of the right number of people in my truck), only the area code on the accident report under my name and no phone number from the other car involved. Im not sure if the smaller mistakes are even mistakes and Im sure if there was just one of the smaller mistakes it wouldnt matter, but i cant believe there are this many mistakes on my ticket, especially when the officer had all my info in his hands when he wrote it all down.
when i take this to court will that give me any sort of advantage? All im hoping for is to get a lesser charge, because i cant justify a careless driving charge with the accident that happened. Iv called for legal advice but wont get a call back for another day,
any info here would be great and would help put me at ease about all this.
