Yes, I'm sure it was MTO. The cruiser had MTO on the doors... No equipments

ONTARIO REGULATION 361/98

Visible Emissions

6. (1) No person shall operate or cause or permit the operation of a light vehicle from which there is a visible emission for more than 15 seconds in any five-minute period. O. Reg. 401/98, s. 1; O. Reg. 86/99, s. 5 (1); O. Reg. 343/01, s. 5 (1).
(2) No person shall operate or cause or permit the operation of a heavy vehicle from which there is a visible emission for more than 15 seconds in any five-minute period. O. Reg. 401/98, s. 1; O. Reg. 86/99, s. 5 (2); O. Reg. 343/01, s. 5 (2).

Are you sure the ticket says 361/48??? or does the 9 look like a 4?

If so you may have a fatal error and I would pursue that course of action.

If there is no fatal error the regulation is about "visible emissions", which may be seen as arbitrary considering that even water vapor is visible. If you go to a drive clean and pass the test without repairs you could start going down that road but i wouldn't hold my breath (unless of course I was standing near your tailpipe).

MTO cases are a bit different they usually have their own prosecutor that does all of their cases on one day. You usually are asked to fax/write the MTO office directly for disclosure and they will mail it to you. When you go to court on Friday if the officer is there ask for an adjournment to the fault of the Prosecutor. Be prepared to illustrate your repeated attempts.
