Anyways, the cop caught me doing 130 in a 100 on the QEW. He asked to see my license (but not my insurance or registration, which was odd). He said he scaled the ticket back and wrote ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â¦129 km/h in a posted 100 km/hÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â.
Fine is $138, which is not an issue. The issue is that I donÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢t want the points and want to extend this as long as possible and not pay anything until absolutely necessary.
Guy at work said the following: ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“Pay nothing. They are going to issue so many tickets today the cop won't even show if it goes to trial. On Tuesday go into the court and select Option 2 Early Resolution Meet with ProsecutorÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â. I get what he is saying but what do I say at the meeting? What do I doÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â¦? Help!!
Sample disclosure form: http://www.ontariohighwaytrafficact.com/topic2959.html
Once you review the officer's notes, and get a copy of his manual (testing pages); you can decide whether you want to proceed to trial or plea-bargain.
Most likely the prosecutor will offer you the 115 in a 100 zone if you really only care about the points. All the prosecutor wants is a speeding conviction.
Option 2 is a meeting with the prosecutor where you can only discuss plea-deals. The officer will not be present, in some cases disclosure will not even be available. Unless you show compelling evidence or serious problems with the officer's notes; the prosecutor will not withdraw or drop the charge at the resolution meeting. They have to believe there is no reasonable prospect to get a conviction.
