On March, 10, 2013 I got a ticket on Mississauga and 401 going south on Mississauga. There were four cruisers on the left most lane parked with no apparent accident that I could notice. Though they did have their lights on. As i approached them, I slowed down and passed by them. Right after that, the last most cruiser, pulled out and stopped me to ask why I was stopped. I replied no as I was following the speed limit. He said, I broke the law as I am supposed to change over to the left most lane when the lights are lit on the cruiser and you are passing by it. I said, you were on the left already and the area had ramps to the highway so i slowed down and passed with care. He said have to move to the other lane no matter what. I told him I didn't feel safe.
Despite explaining, he gave me a ticket of $490 but nothing about points on the ticket. I found out online that you get 3 points in this case. I don't know if this applies.
Can someone please guide me or tell me if you think i should contact a lawyer
Yes the points apply, it isn't the copper's job to inform you of them.
