$325 ticket for not stopping

Unread post by empire123 on

Hey guys, I know some of you may have noticed my post under "CARELESS DRIVING" but I saw that the section was dead, and also my charge constitutes with me failing to obey a stop sign and making a left turn so thats why I posted here. If a repost is not allowed, MODS please feel free to delete whichever post you think is least read. Thanks

Im in a sticky situation if someone could help me out I would be really grateful.

Here is my situation:
I am heading eastbound on a small residential street with a posted 40 km/hr and a stop sign comes up. The intersection is deserted so naturally, i slow down and stop for like a microsecond and then proceed with caution to make a left turn.

I know i know, stop for 3 seconds. My bad.

Now cop is going westbound and was about 300 ft away from the intersection. As i crossed the intersection i saw him out the corner of my eye. Now i didnt realize he would stop me and give me such an enormous ticket.

thanks for your help


Heres my charge:

Careless Driving contrary to H.T.A 130
fine total payable: $325

Shouldnt the ticket have been under:

Regulations, signs and markings

182. (1) The Lieutenant Governor in Council may make regulations requiring or providing for the erection of signs and the placing of markings on any highway or any type or class thereof, and prescribing the types of the signs and markings and the location on the highway of each type of sign and marking and prohibiting the use or erection of any sign or type of sign that is not prescribed. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 182 (1); 2002, c. 18, Sched. P, s. 32.

or failing to stop? I dont understand how not stopping for 3 seconds before making a left turn falls under careless driving Thanks again

Thank your lucky stars. Careless is a hell of a lot harder to prove than running a stop.
What kind of a man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.
