I recently got this ticket - 'Fail to properly Wear Seatbelt'. Any advise would be appreciated.
So I stopped at stop sign to make right turn on a busy street and I saw a cop driving by at least 50 - 60 km/h. When I made a turn finally, the cop was parked about 100 meters away from this stop sign on a shoulder then pulled me over as soon as I passed him.
I kept quiet and neither denied nor admitted the offence at the scene just in case. It was two points plus 200$ - 240$ set fine. I will take it to the court but what are the chances of defending this ticket to be won? or should I make a deal with prosecutor at the court...?

In the absence of other evidence it will be your word against the officers, if you can offer credible and honest testimony that you were indeed wearing your seatbelt you could win.
Thanks for your reply. What evidence the officer could bring out in the court? The officer could have seen it wrong in this case as the cruiser was driving by decent speed. I guess I will have to see...
