I got a ticket in March for 149 Km/h on the 401. I understood some parts of the ticket but I would appreciate more info. I spoke with x-copper, they told me it is probably not worth fighting the ticket if the officer clocked you at 150 Km/h and reduced it. I can't tell from reading the ticket. Please take a look below

On the first page of the notes, last line, arrow pointing down usually means you were slowing 150 down to 149. Technically stunt driving at 150. The officer decided to charge you at 149. If you take this to trial and the officer testifies that you were driving 150, the prosecutor will probably amend the ticket up to the original speed. In that case at 50over, there is no set fine and the JP will decide on the fine. Most definitely higher than the set fine you received and possibly larger insurance implications..
Thanks that clarifies. I will take your advice. Only question is should I bother going to prosecutor meeting? or should I just pay? Are they likely to reduce it? I think I have little chance of winning so not optimistic on reduction from prosecutor side.
You canâ€™t score if you donâ€™t shoot the puck! If you have time to go to the meeting and donâ€™t have any convictions, they may reduce it further if youâ€™re apologetic and donâ€™t go in with a chip on your shoulder.
If they donâ€™t offer you anything further , you can simply offer to pay it. If you need more time to pay, that can also be easily arranged through the courts.
