Disobey stop sign

by: junkyman98 on

I got my ticket for "disobey stop sign -Fail to stop" at the residential area.

On Sunday morning around 9:30AM I drove at the residentail area and proceed to a stop sign. So I stop for less than 2 sec. then take off but I was driving slow. Then the officer pulled me over for Disobey stop sign- Fail to Stop HTA Sec. 136(1)(a) with $110 fine.

How would I fight for this ticket as HTA did not state how long you have to stop for at the stop sign. I do proceed driving with caution and under the speed limited.

I do not want to plea guilty and receive 3 demerit points. I have over 10 year clean driving record.

Please advise. Thank you all.

I think it's called MS Office :lol: Stick with OpenOffice guys.. 100% free, handles all file formats, flawless export to PDF, what else do you need?
What kind of a man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

Yah, I was a complete "newb" when I wrote that. Pretty-much just discovered the internet and forums around that time. Nothing but American sites on traffic back then.

Definitely should visit Ticketcombats site for "proper" terms and procedures.

On a side note, JP's don't expect defendants to know all the in's and out's of a trial. Don't think you have to look all slick and polished. Might even backfire. I have had great success just stumbling along through the process.

A Microsoft product not doing what it's designed to? I'm SHOCKED :roll: When I was a child, playing on my C=>64, I dreamed of buying a laptop preloaded with Vista. After a couple of months' "use" I couldn't contain my excitement with another fine Microsoft product, wiped it off, installed Linux and never looked back :twisted:

P.S. It opens up in OpenOffice without any issues 8)
Your Worship,

- It is common knowledge that a defendant is to be assumed innocent until proven guilty.
- The prosecution, in my opinion, has NOT been successful in Proving Without a Reasonable Doubt that this offence has occurred.
- Acting in my own defense to this charge, I have identified (2) clear problems with the people’s case, either one of which should have this charge dismissed against me.
