Former Ontario Police Officer. Advice will become less relevant as the time goes by !
Some officers just like to get rid of tickets. I don't know what this country is turning into.argyll wrote:Just for clarity, you do not need to stop for 3 seconds at a stop sign, you just need to stop.
I forget what a police's job is, "to serve and to protect" us citizens or just be a revenue generating machine for the government.
Most of them are forgetting the fact they work for us, not against us.
I remember back in the day, when police officers were a lot more friendly. I actually believed the fact "they served and protected us", now i don't even believe that anymore.
Some drivers have trouble mastering basic proficiency behind the wheel as well.t3ch9 wrote:Some officers just like to get rid of tickets. I don't know what this country is turning into.
No, I'm not a cop, just dealt with them a lot.
If you think I'm incorrect with this statement, keep it to yourself. I've seen enough police officers to know that there is bare police corruption going on.
Your comments are off topic and bring nothing to this discussion. I think it's you who might be well advised to keep it to yourself.t3ch9 wrote:If you think I'm incorrect with this statement, keep it to yourself.

argyll is correct on your initial point. You just have to come to a complete stop.alygator wrote:Back in November, I got pulled over for not stopping 3 seconds at a stop sign. The officer decided not to give me a ticket for that but instead because I had improper paperwork in the car. The date on the license plate did not match the date on the paperwork. I chose "Early Resolution" and went to speak to them. He asked what the initial reason for me being pulled over was and I told him the truth in which he began telling me how lucky I was that the officer was generous that day. He then told me that I had two options: Pay the fine or go to court. I decided to go to court. He gave me a disclosure form and he said a letter would be mailed to me within a few weeks. About a month and a half have passed and still no letter. Should I go in and talk to them or keep waiting it out?
I wouldn't say it's unusual to not receive a Notice of Trial after a month and a half. If you're still worried, follow daggx's advice. You can always contact the courthouse and double check.
