I was heading home from school and there was a red light at an intersection A & B where I did a right turn, after coming to a stop. Immediately I saw sirens go off and I was pulled over.
Officer claimed I did not come to a full stop and just swung into the intersection, he claimed "I saw you slow down but you didn't stop"
He gave me a $325 red light - fail to stop ticket with 3 demerit point penalty and left. He didn't mention anything about video from his dash cam. He handed me my ticket and told me to go to court before I said anything, claiming they might lower the fine or reduce the demerit points.
The thing is though, on the ticket it says I committed the act of failing to stop at a red light at intersection C & B at 9:47PM, so it was a different intersection from the one he claimed I did not stop for. This intersection was further down street B (I was going westbound) so at 9:47PM I had not even reached intersection C & B. I'm not sure how I can prove this, since there are no witnesses? I was pulled over beside a nursery, which is before the intersection C & B.
I will be going to arrange a court date tomorrow, but in the mean time is there anything I should read up on? Will the ticket be dismissed since it claims I committed an offence at a different intersection?
Thanks for any advice!!
So the ticket is still valid.
