sec 144 (9) Mon- Fri restriction question

Hello.

Yesterday (Civic Holiday) I received a ticket for "proceeding contrary to sign at intersection". I turned left onto Lakeshore BVLD from Stadium road and the sign clearly stated no left turn, Mon - Fri, 4:00 - 6:00 pm (my ticket was issued at 5:46 pm.)

Two questions:

1) Does the Mon - Fri restriction apply on statutory holidays? It might seem silly, but in my mind the spirit of the restriction is to control traffic flow during the work week, not on weekends (or a holiday - it's impossible for me to imagine getting this ticket on Christmas Day, for example.)

2. Any advice on getting this ticket quashed? At the very least I want to see the demerit points removed and I would like a reduction in fine as well. (I haven't had a ticket in 25 years.)

I'm hoping the fact that it was a holiday Monday and my clean driving record will work in my favour.

Thanks in advance for any help.

1) There is no exemption for holidays, etc., unfortunately.
2) Try your luck at a first attendance meeting. Might be able to get a plea deal to a bylaw offence or something else with no demerit points.
