Hi,
I was involved in an accident. I got a ticket for "Fail to drive in marked lanes"

Is there any defense for this?

I wasnt intending on changing any lanes, but however I was involved in swerving my car from left to right (at the 401 e)it was unintentional. Since i was not changing the lane but got involved an accident, which was due to slippery conditions and the fact it was an accident (not intentional
obviously), i feel like i should have a defense.

Please help,

Nabeel

The fact that it was not intentional isn't a defence in itself. Lots of accidents aren't intentional but it doesn't negate fault. You'd have to show that the road conditions were something very unexpected, sudden and you were driving with due care. This has already been answered in your earlier post on this same question.
