Hi there.

Today I received a ticket which claimed I was going 57 km in a 40 km zone. There was a tripod and a radar gun set-up at that location.
But the address of where this infraction occurred, as indicated on the ticket, was not where I got pulled over.
I checked the street number indicated on the ticket and that area is actually a 50 km zone.

Is this considered a fatal error? Do I plead not guilty and request a trial date or can this type of error be handled without a trial.

Thanks in advance,

The offence location on the ticket should be where the offence took place, not where the vehicle is stopped.

Oh ok in that case if the location indicated on the ticket should be where the offense took place, but that location was actually a 50 km zone and not 40 km as stated in the 'offense committed description', would you say that is a good enough case to get off the hook for the fines/points or at least a re-assessment of the fine (57 km in a 50 km zone)

i do not know why any # is wrote on the offence address either....seems unusual, unless of course on "Highway #"

Interesting. The process took only 2 minutes .. from getting pulled over getting a ticket and then driving away.

I didn't speak a word and he mentioned at the end to book a trial date to have your fines reduced. Maybe he intentionally put a number on the address to let me fight off the ticket easier ... Would be strange if that's the case...

Anyways any opinions on how I can present a defense would be appreciated. I've read the ticket combat website but still not sure how to put up my argument if the cop decides to say it was a typo in court
