90 km/hr in a 60km/hr zone..Court Date Tomorrow

Unread post by dkameka on

Any help appreciated!! Court Date Tomorrow Afternoon.

1) Officer didn't reduce the ticket at all.

2) I've selected option 2 - Early Resolution - Meet With a Prosecutor
My goal is to simply negotiate the charge to a lower offence.

My question:
Am I better off trying to negotiate the charge down to 75/km/hr in a 60km zone.....OR
Negotiate disobeyed legal sign charge?

I'm thinking the 15km/hr over being there is no demerit points and considered minor conviction?

Advice please...all I can get.

well your ticket is a minor offense either way. negotiate based off fine amount not demerits (unless you have so many tickets your license will be suspended).

- It's not a garage sale. You can pretty much take what they offer you or you can continue on with a trial.
- They are not going to offer you a completely unrelated charge when there's still room to reduce your speed.
- You'll likely be offered 15km over.

As already pointed out, you're only saving on the fine amount. If your record is clean of points, saving yourself from them isn't going to be a big achievement. Insurance doesn't use or care about points. They only care that you were convicted, points or no points.

Whether your insurance considers 30km over anything other than a minor offense is up to your provider. In most cases, you'll see no difference in 30km over versus 15km. You'll be treated pretty much the same.
