A co-worker got a speeding ticket. I told him the usual, "Mail in your Not-Guilty plea and wait for a court date, now get lost, I'm busy..."

A couple weeks later, he receives a return mailing stating he must attend in person to request a trial. What?!!!!

First I've ever heard of this. Kitchener court... Any thoughts?
If it's games they want, it's games they'll get, hehehehe >:]

more and more courts are going to this system that you can not mail in to request a trial, but must show up in person.

Windsor is like this and works very well.

What's wrong with mailing it? My last ticket was 2 hours away. So I'm supposed to drive 4 hours (endangering hundreds of others on the road, LOL) just to get a court date? And this is smarter?

Perhaps I'll suggest that the crown deliver the date in person to his house, LOL.

But what do I know.

The process seems to be changing i've noticed. In Mississauga, you no longer get a trial date sent by mail. Trial dates are printed and handed to you on the spot. I don't remember if I had to sign it or not, but i'm pretty sure I did.

I don't know if it has anything to do with the new process, but the wait for your trial date is significantly shorter also.
