Got a traffic ticket for my wife who was a passenger on the front seat as well as for my daughter (3 years) who was sitting at back on a child seat . both of them got ticket for the same offence (not properly securing seat belt). Both of them were wearing seat belt under arm. I am planning to fight it, any advice will be appreciated.
Who received the ticket for your wife?
Passengers over 16 are responsible for themselves. Passengers under 16 are the responsibility of the driver.
Are you sure your daughter received a ticket for seat belt under the arm? Is she in a car seat? Booster seat?
Here's the relevant section of the HTA which deals with your tickets:
How to wear seat belt assembly
(5) A seat belt assembly shall be worn so that,
(a) the pelvic restraint is worn firmly against the body and across the hips;
(b) the torso restraint, if there is one, is worn closely against the body and over the shoulder and across the chest;
(c) the pelvic restraint, and the torso restraint, if there is one, are securely fastened; and
(d) no more than one person is wearing the seat belt assembly at any one time. 2006, c. 25, s. 1.
Yes, i know my wife is responsible for her ticket. I only received ticket for my daughter.
She was using a booster seat
Sorry for the confusion,
I got ticket for my daughter and and my wife got ticket for she not wearing seat belt. Both of them were wearing underarm and my daughter was using booster seat, she is 3.5 year old.
When did you receive your tickets?
Have you asked for a court date yet? Are you waiting for your date? Have you received your date?
Received ticket last week, 9 october tuesday. I havent done anything till now. Planning to plea not guilty today.
You said both your wife and your daughter had their seatbelts under their arms. A seatbelt must be worn over the arm and shoulder. You can still request a trial and see the disclosure, but keep in mind you've admitted they were both wearing them incorrectly.
