Hi All,

Great forum and feedback!

I was issued a ticket today for disobeying a sign which was newly erected sign (no left turn) and blocked from my view by an excavator in a construction zone.

I have little knowledge of the process to fight the ticket and am wondering

a) approixmately how far out would my trial date be set?
b) once notified of the trial date could I reschedule if it lands on a date when I would be unable to attend?

I have heard that simply failing to show up on the day of the trial could result in having additional fines levied agianst you, I am concerned becuase there is a two week period this August where I will be out of the country.

Many thanks for any advice.

Depends on where you got the ticket. Toronto could take 6+ months. Timmins would probably be a week.

You can, ASAP, go before a Justice of the Peace and explain you need to re-schedule. The delay would then be "charged to you" if, down the road, you needed to consider an 11B (unreasonable delay of trial) motion. Alternatively you could have a friend appear on your behalf to ask for an adjournment on the "day of" if you're not available, but rescheduling early is usually the better option. Or, you could hire a paralegal.
