Court date set - how to proceed

Unread post by stormsam on

I recieved a ticket for 84km in a 50km in a community safety zone. I went to my first appearance and pled not guilty. The prosecution gave me the disclosure in court but it was missing a few things. I am going to request some extra items including
A full copy of the manual for the speed-measuring device used by the officer
Calibration Certificate for the Radar
Date of last Calibration for Radar
Calibration Certificate for any calibration equipment
Certificate of Conformance
Industry Canada certificate certifying that the unit has been approved for use in Canada
Is there anything else that i am missing or that may help? The officers notes seem complete with radar testing times ect. They only gave one page of the radar manual. Should i ask for the whole thing?
They did not provide proof of the bylaw for the community safety zone and i am not going to ask for it so I am thinking I should be able to get that removed. Has anyone done that before?
I'm just not sure what to do to prepare a defense. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't be surprised if you don't actually get anything on that list. And with respect to the radar manual specifically, it's unusual to get more than 1 or a couple pages.

I agree with Simon. Our agency gives copies the testing procedure for the radar and if you want to see a manual you may with one of our court officers present.

I faxed it through so we will see what they say, I figure it can't hurt. What do you think about the community safety zone part, if they haven't provided me with a copy of the by law proving it is a community safety zone will that part get thrown out and they still keep the speeding part of it?
