How old is your son? How much does he weigh, and how tall is he? There are different regulations for different toddlers, based on age, height, and weight.

Based on personal experience, I'm certain your son needs to be at least 40lbs to be in an unsecured booster.

The booster seat as you describe it is probably unsafe for your son, as it's around 10kgs where kids move from rear facing to forward facing car seats.

I think the police officer got the charge right.

One way of dealing with the ticket maybe to go out and purchase a proper car seat. You can then contact the police officer / crown see if they would be willing to waive the ticket.

I requested for a disclosure already & I have one question in my mind weather these two statement are for the same offence?

In my notice of trial:

Offence: FL. Secu. Toddler restraint Sys ( contraty to Highway Traffic Reg section 613 8(3)

& on my ticket:

Offence:Fail to ensure toddler properly secured
Highway Traffic Act section 613 8(3)

Also If the prosecutor call me to fax the disclosure & did not fax it, then sholud i have to go & pick it up by my self or ?

Thanks

They should mail it to you, unless you provided them with a fax number. If you did then they will probably try to fax over the disclosure. If the fax had failed, you probably need to pick up the disclosure yourself.

However, you do NOT want to receive disclosure. Not receiving disclosure means that you can win the ticket on that fact alone. If your court date is in distant future(>2 months), wait for mailed package.
