I was pulled over anyway though because I "was weaving in and out of traffic". I literally changed lanes, signaled, did not speed up, and signaled to switch back into the lane i was initially in. I knew he was there, I'm not stupid and he was totally being a dick the whole time. He was maybe 100-200 feet behind me and even acknowledged that he saw me signal, but still tried to say i was weaving in and out of traffic.
#1 He got the model of my car wrong
#2 There is something at the bottom about a $20 administrative fee, does that mean i have to pay it? being a warning?
#3 Is it possible to fight to have this dumb warning tossed out
#4 How long does a warning like this stay on record for?
I feel i was wrongly accused and singled out because i was easier to pull over.
I know driving around with friends that are driving more aggressive is already a heat score but that's why i tend not to do so, I'm not an idiot.
Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.
I can scan it tomorrow and put it up after work.
imo it's just dumb and don't even want it on any kind of record.
So how long would this be on there in house record?OPS Copper wrote:There will not be on anything on your driving record. The local PS will have an in house record documenting the stop and warning issued
London Ontario is the city.

Almost wishing it wasn't a warning. I would have easily been able to get out of an actual fine since he got the model of my car wrong and was totally BSing me the whole time.
Notice that I apparently drive a Nissan SSR... Fail...

You'd be wrong. There's nothing about a wrong model that would make your case easily winnable. Also, when talking about HTA offenses, careless driving is up there as one of the worst.HazAnga wrote:I would have easily been able to get out of an actual fine since he got the model of my car wrong and was totally BSing me the whole time.
Careless Driving is labeled as a serious offense by all insurance providers. It's possible to have your insurance dropped by your provider immediately. The penalty is $400-$2000, your license suspended up to 2 years, and up to 6 months in jail (although unlikely).
The officer did you a favor.
Also, I believe a charge will remain just as visible as a warning, conviction or not. I could be wrong, though. Maybe someone else can chime in.
The two are not connected. The in house record just details what was happening at the time of the stop and that is you were warned or charged. It never says your guilty as that is for you or the courts to decide.
As for the SSR that I bet is from the MTO records. The model of car is not always listed the same as the manufacture. I have no idea where or how the MTO comes up with their coding.
Not that it matters, but you can easily check to see if the officer put the right code by looking at your ownership. It will list the make and model and the three letter code should match.
I'd personally like to the see the MTO use the full model name like other Provinces and States. Certainly help the police when they're trying to ID a vehicle.
