Planning to take to court/plead down so are there any considerations with regards to radar gun accuracy at night? Anything else to think about? I had my GPS on and copied the .gpx file to my PC but haven't been able to open it as yet. Not sure what data is included in the Garmin Nuvi 750 trip log (eg. speed data) but not counting on it. I have a US car with KM on the inside of the speedo so I am always looking down at the speedo to monitor my speed which is why I thought I was doing ~120km/h. I know this does not make much difference as it's the officer's word against mine but Caledon OPP stopped my a few years back and claimed I was doing 90 in a 60 zone but I was doing around 65. When my wife who was a passenger piped in about our speed he backed off and just told us to slow down. Not sure why he thought we were doing 90 but I don't think he was even using radar.
Any difference between Pointts or XCopper for this type of infraction?
you will have to request disclosure to discover what type of speed measuring device they used and a copy of it's manual, to understand how it was operated
you don't need paralegal services to fight this minor ticket, use the guides at the site
And FYI, don't argue in Court you were only doing 120. If you admit you were speeding, the Courts will almost always side with the officer's measured speed. Just question them on their evidence.
I plan to go to the Hamilton court tomorrow to file and there are 3 options on the back of the ticket:
1. Option 2: Early resolution - Meet with Prosecutor (is this pleading guily or not guilty when selecting this option?)
2. Option 3: Trial Option (this option indicates intent to plead Not Guilty)
I would be looking at Option 3?
Hard to tell from the partial info if everything is in line or not with the radar tracking and device operation.
I have sent a request for the remaining omitted documents as they did not indicate why it was omitted.
Does the Officer operating the radar appear in court also (if different from the Officer who issued the ticket)?
