I was driving in a residential neighborhood. I marked a stop at an intersection and when shortly after I re-started I bumped into a jogger. In fact, the jogger just touched the left side mirror. I callled the police on the scene, and the officer gave me a ticket under the offence "Fail to Yield To Traffic in Through Highway" (art. 136(1)(b)) of the HTA).
Here is my question. Do I need to pay the ticket ($110) now or shall I dispute it. Essentially, I would like to make sure that paying the ticket wouldn't be interpreted as an acknowledgement that I failed to obey the stop sign, etc; and increase my liability if the jogger sue me.
Thanks for your help.
In the scenario you have put forward it appears that potentially wrong charge was laid. You should seek representation to minimize civil liability.
