Had few questions - do you think I can put both offenses on the disclosure request, or I have to wait until the case is re-opened/sent to trial?
- do you think it's beneficial to have friend testify regardless?
Thanks Screech for looking that up..wish this officer knew his traffic acts properly, but we're at their mercy unfortunately.
+++ This is not legal advice, only my opinion +++
One, the officer is not going to purger himself/herself, most likely something went wrong and ticket did not get canceled, I doubt you will need to do much on this one.
For the stop sign however, you might have some fighting to do.
Back to permit, having stickers on the back of permit to validate it is not mandatory, it used to be as I understand it but not any more.
Not sure why this has not made it into officer's training manual yet, but people get tickets for this all the time and if you know the details, you "should" be able to get it tossed.

"Dear Court of Justice,
On the night of March XX I was pulled over by Officer XXX for disobeying a stop sign. Once pulled over, I gave my driver license, car insurance, and ownership. Once Officer XXX came back he said he will give me two tickets ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â€œ one for disobeying a stop sign and one for not having the license sticker on the back of my ownership paper (although a valid one is on the license plate). I then informed the officer I must have given him the wrong photocopy and promptly found the proper ownership photocopy with valid stickers and handed that to him. He then informed me to take it to court and the judge will cancel that ticket. I then informed him that itÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s very difficult for me to go to court as I often work 80 or more hours per week at XXXX and cannot easily take time off and I had all of the documentation he required so it is not fair to be ticketed. The officer said he would cancel that ticket and went back to his police car and returned. The only ticket I was formally served or given directly in my hand was the disobeying stop sign ticket.
However, one month later I received a notice in the mail stating that I failed to pay the ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“no permitÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â ticket offense #XXXX
I would like to re-open this ticket as instructed by the provincial offenses office information line.
