I got this ticket yesterday (stupid me). I was wondering what the best way to go about fighting this case would be. From reading relevant topics relating to mine, i feel like the best option would be to try and get the ticket knocked down to a municipal by-law offence. I was wondering how to go about that?? Any suggestions or other better methods to fight this case? I am a young male and i cannot have a dent to my driving record as my insurance rates would skyrocket even more, even if the demerit points do get knocked off. Thanks.

Attend First Attendance
1) How do I go about the first attendance meeting? Whats the best way to approach it?
2) If it does get bumped down, what would the charge be?
3) I really cant have a ticket on my insurance, regardless of points not being taken. Would it be best just to hire a paralegal?
2) The charge may depend on what's available in your local bylaws
3) Why not? You can make you're own pitch for a lesser offence, save the paralegals for the arguing bit, they're rather expensive and often don't do anything you couldn't.
It's a municipal bylaw, as long as you pay them, it's not recorded on your driving history, if you don't you DL may not be renewed.
