I asked for a log of all the tickets he has handed out that day as well and anything else that may be useful to me at trial. I will udpate when i get the details.
One thing is that I have multiple defense strategies.
1) Stay application based on non disclosure
2) Objecting to use of Officer's notes because he does not have independent recollection
3) Highlighting that I have not received a manual that states the proper use of radar gun.
4) Highlighting that the officer did not sufficiently provide information the SPECIFIC model of lidar he used DOES NOT EXIST therefore having a prima face case where if he did not test a gun that does not exist, he did not test it and therefore the JP should have an easy time judging this.
5) If the above doesn't work, i'll talk the officer into circles and get him to describe my car wrong (in his notes he wrote my car was green -- it's black) and I'll have ownership to prove that.
6) Aruging that because I was not provided information and that I missed two days of work at 8 hours each day just to drive to nowhere's ville.
Wish me luck.
don't think you will ever see that, it is a copyright document. To my understanding each crown has the manual for viewing purposes only and you can attend a look it over.m4gician wrote: 3) Highlighting that I have not received a manual that states the proper use of radar gun.
Above is merely a suggestion/thought and in no way constitutes legal advice or views of my employer. www.OHTA.ca
You cannot deny access to or a copy of the manual on the basis of copyright, see IPC ORDER MO-2016 and s. 32.1(1) of the Copyright Acthwybear wrote:don't think you will ever see that, it is a copyright document.

Fight Your Ticket!
That's right, i was shot with this once, it's an Ultralyte. Its manual claims to have a "wheather filter" button which allows the speed reading taken in rain, snow or fog.Radar Identified wrote:Does Laser Atlanta have the Light or Ultra Light model? (Or I think they spell it Lyte or Ultra Lyte or something like that.) Thought I saw that somewhere.
From what I know, 525 m and beam divergence 3 milliradians, let's see carry the 9, and the beam is 1.575 meters in diameter, or bigger then the frontal area of your car. The officer could have taken the reading from a car around you. Plus at that distance if the beam to targeting dot is out even 0.2 of a degree its a difference 1.82 m at that distance ........Make sure you get confirmation one way or the other whether or not the officer did the alignment check on the gun. In order for the JP to convict you he'll have to have it written down......last (reading) 141(km/hr) at 525.86m (metres)
