Quebec Ticket

Sorry, I know this may be out of scope for this forum but there is a lot of knowledge here so I thought I might try to tap it.

Im an Ontarian and was in Montreal recently on the Ville Marie (a 3-lane highway) I was doing 120k and when the guy zipped me with a lidar gun I was shocked to learn that the speed limit was 70 (I thought it was 100 because everybody is going 110). The ticket was… get this… $720 plus 10 POINTS!!! Ouch!!! Since I was an Anglo with Ontario plates… no break… not 1 fin click off.

Annnnyway, I hired a traffic lawyer to help me negotiate a deal and he FORGOT TO FILE ANY PAPERS… I faxed it to him and he said, "I should have followed up with him"… WTF!?!?

So after giving him a blast of s**t he said he would see what he could do… but I totally dont trust the guy know if hes that much of a ‘tard.

I know in Ontario you can get the verdict set aside… anybody know about Quebec and how to go about it?

if any...good is 10 points for an Quebec driver.....Ontario applies it as a conviction "50km/hr over the posted speed limit" which is 6 points. See, just saved you 4 points, probably not what you wanted to hear.
