I Really Am Unlucky.

Unread post by UnluckyDuck on

So Again, I really don't know how I'm attracting attention to myself, but I am.

Saturday at 1:30 in the morning I was pulled over on the 400 for 142 in a posted 100 Zone. Honestly, I know I was speeding, but I thought maybe 110-120 (I'm trying to clean up my act.) Anyways, Pulled over, Ticketed, Explained 3 options on the back, and we departed on our way.

One thing I noticed, which I have never seen before, He wrote my vehicle description on the ticket. Fatal Maybe?

Attached is the ticket.

Planning on pleading Not Guilty, Requesting a Trial with Officer Present, and requesting disclosure when I get my trial date.

No the vehicle description on ticket is not fatal.

Is the set fine and total payable correct?

Looks like it. Guess I'll be waiting to file this ticket and request my disclosure.

I don't really like making personal opinions in threads, but at what point is your situation not going to be about "unlucky me".

You've been a member here for little over a year and post every other month with new charges or ridiculous behavior.
Also, when you started posting here you made it clear you already had 5 convictions and have had a license for what, 5 years?

I'll be honest, Yes I have been licensed for 5 years, and I have screwed up back when I was in high school. I've been working on bettering myself, knowing that driving is a right, not a privilege. From 2012-2014 I did not recieve any tickets until that one Disobey Sign, and ever since then, I've been downhill, but trying to get back on the right track.

Reverse a small portion of your last statement. Driving is a privilege, not a right.

Sorry about that Decatur, that's what I meant. Sometimes the words come out the opposite way than intended.

So I keep checking the City of Toronto Website, The Ticket still has not been filed. If I'm not mistaken, there are certain time periods where the ticket needs to be filed in order to be valid (7 Days IIRC). If it happens to pass that date, what would the procedure be to get it quashed?

It needs to be filed with the clerk of the court within 7 days. That has nothing to do with when it will show up on their website.

Usually I call the Clerk on about day 10 to see if it has been filed yet.

Given all the incidents the mod posted, you did not even remotely try to get back on the right path if you racked up so many infractions just these past 12-18 months.
Take a good hard look at yourself and start driving more responsibly...or face the consequences - it's your call.

Turns out I ended up lucky on this one. Had my trial yesterday. Officer Showed up, with a pretty tight disclosure. So I walked in to speak with the prosecutor and he offers me a 15 over (Speeding 115 in a 100 zone). I took it, and the JP gave me 6 months to pay it. 0 Points and a $52.50 fine opposed to 4 points and a $317 fine. I'd take this as a win in my opinion.

Insurance may still go up though, but $52 is better than $317.

41 People on the Docket. Same officer, same day, same spot. Variation of speeds from 136-149.
