35+ months total time period, with my next and perhaps final trial in June.
I have went with the 11b route but had to choose to abandon because it was just eating up my resources with officer sick and re/ordering transcripts. It was a clear night in February. I was coming off the 404 NB exit ramp on Major Mackenzie Dr E. There was an unmarked cruiser sitting on the 404 NB on ramp facing SW, equipped with an on board dash camera. The cruiser flags me to pull over writes me the citation under HTA 144 (18). There is no indication of any traffic light within the view of the on board camera. However, the disclosure/notes states: "Have clear observations of NB off ramp traffic light because they are approximately 1.5 car lengths north of the north major mackenzie drive east shoulder..." But I took some images and personally think he did not have full observation of the NB off ramp lights. Also he said that I slowed approx. 15kph, then turned right on the red light without ever stopping. I am going to attempt to cast doubt on the video evidence because it shows no indication of "a vehicle failing to stop at a red light".
Since it has been so long since the initial laying of the charge. I don't think I should go up to the stand to testify on my behalf, unless you guys think otherwise. I wanted to get some input from all of you. If I am approach this the right way? Where can I find some great resources to build my cross examination and close?
P.S. I added an image for some context.

35 months? If most of that delay is attributable to the crown you pretty much have a slam dunk 11B. Spend a two to three hundred on a paralegal to get this resolved.
This ticket has a lengthy history. It's been through appeal and sent back up to court. The delay is not favourable in my case.
