The officer came to my window and right away pointed to the sign that says the limit was "60Km/h". He even had his radar/laser gun in hand and showed me that it displayed a big "90". He said to me "what were you thinking, you were going 90 in a 60"
I'm looking at my ticket right now and it says:
"SPEEDING - 98 KPH IN A 60 KPH ZONE."
Set fine of $228
Total payable: $283
I am 100% sure the radar/laser gun he showed me said 90. No doubt about it. I see online that the set fine is supposed to be $6/km over the speed limit and so both the fine and description of my offence is wrong since I was not caught at 98KPH.
I've been reading online and would like to know if this is considered a "fatal error" and how best to proceed with fighting this?
Thanks in advance for your help!
The flip side could be that the 8 could be mistaken for a 0 and the other way around.
It is not a fatal error.
