My ticket says contrary to "Highway Traffict Act #128". Set fine calculated by the officer is $101.25 ( $3.75/km). Plus $30 for court charges and Victim charges to a total of $131.25.
However, according to section 128 i should be paying 27 x $4.5/km = $121.50 + Plus $30 for court charges and Victim charges to a total of $151.50.
The officer, even though mentioned on the ticket section 128, calculated the fine under Sec 43 of Ontario Court of Justice.
Is this a fatal error?
So for 20-29 km/hr over the fine is $3.75 per km over. So 27*$3.75 = $101.25. Add a $25 surcharge and $5 court costs, youre at $131.25.
Shouldn't he have quoted section 43 rather than 128??
This depends on what jurisdiction you got the ticket in. Some places allow you to mail in a not guilty plea, others require you to appear in person at their office. The fine print on the back of the ticket should tell you which procedure the area you got tagged in uses.omhush wrote:Thank you Stanton! I am disputing the ticket. This is my first ever experience and I couldn't find any info on Google. Can I mail my ticket with Option 3 selected or do I have to show up in person to dispute it and request a trial date? Also, if I can mail it, do I mail the original or a copy and keep the original with me?
I wanted to find out whether it's appropriate to request disclosure now or will the prosecutor have the evidence with him that I can see once i'm there? I would like to see the evidence against me before I can decide whether to accept his/her offer or not.
I had no problem getting disclosure while waiting for an Early Resolution meeting to come up. It was ready within a day for pick up.
