Passenger Seat Belt Ticket (toronto, ONT)

Unread post by 1234567890 on

I was sitting in the back of the car when the RIDE program shows up. The cop saw that i did not have my seatbeat on and gave me a $200 Ticket ($240 total payable). I was womdering how you could fight this ? Could i bring it to court and say i had my seatbeat on and happened to take it off when we stopped for the program ?

Also ...
Additional Details
also i had a small amount of marijuana on me and i just forked it over, when he called his partner over, his partner just talked to me and said i was basically going to get away with it and all i did was just throw it down the sewer. does that affect anything as well ?

If that's the truth.

As for the marijuana, the fact that you were already given a break on a Criminal offence probably means it's less likely the Crown will offer you any type of deal on your seat belt ticket.

Cop did the OP favour by telling him to throw the weed down the sewer... I'd just pay the $240 if it were me.
