Yesterday on my way to town with three screaming kids in the car I missed the change from the 80 to 50.
I have a clean record for close to 30 years, I honestly didn't know the sign was posted but of course the officer was parked behind a sign and pulled me over.
He said that I had been stunt driving (claimed I was doing 100) I wasn't imho I am very careful driver, non the less he said that he realised it's a confusing stretch of road (likely why he was sat there) and he would reduce my speed to 90 in a 50 zone.
He then proceeded to tell me my plate sticker was expired (Feb 28) this was news to me I only just bought and plated the car in January, I honestly thought the dealership had put a 2 year sticker on the new plate not 1 month!
Anyhow to cut a long and boring story short, I accept the ticket for the plate date(my bad) and I admit I missed the 50 sign change, but I'm convinced I was not doing 90 or the 100 he claims I was doing.
On getting home and looking at the ticket I noticed the one with the speeding offence on was not signed.
The other was.
Can I challenge the ticket, not sure what to do. Any advice please.
Also how do I attach a picture on my post? I have the ticket with all names etc scribbled out.

Sorry I am a noob at this stuff.
Is that another fatal error?
I'm really not sure what to do.
Any help would be appreciated.
Yup and that is a clear zero not just a bad pen !
Former Ontario Police Officer. Advice will become less relevant as the time goes by !
If I do I appeal. Does that sound right?
If the Justice doesn't notice the irregularities, you may wind up convicted. In that case you should receive a notice of conviction and then you can apply for... I believe it's a re-opening, not an appeal... better minds than mine can speak up if this comes to pass.
It's a little scary to be honest...
