I have a traffic ticket that occurred on Nov 08, 2012. I just received my notice of hearing date for May 30, 2014. That's over 18 months, so I plan to file a Section 11b. The problem is that since the alleged offense 18 months ago, I've gotten a new job and now to make a living, I work rotation shifts outside the province of BC. Unfortunately, on the hearing date of May 30, 2014, I will be outside of the province on an already assigned work schedule. I do not want to file an adjournment application, I want to pursuit filing a section 11b since I have a civil issue concerning my Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. If I file section 11b, I can't make the May 30 court date to request a stay of proceedings. How to proceed? What is recommended?
Also, I've searched the net, I've found some reference on how to file section 11b specifically for BC. But in all the information I read, I still have to go to the scheduled court date to request the stay. I'm not sure how to handle this so I will be outside the province at that time.
I believe I will have to file an adjournment application then file a section 11b at a later date since the original hearing notice was more than 18 month.
We will be launching two separate forums for BC and Alberta soon.majesus wrote:Unfortunately, there is no BC highway traffic act forum.
