Does this mean my ticket got cancelled?

I got a ticket one day by making an illegal left turn, but police officer give me 2 copies of tickets. one is Certificate of Offence, the other is Offence Notice.

I went to the internet website to pay my ticket on the 15th day of my Offence date, the system still shows that my ticket is not in the system yet, so I didn't pay.

was that the officer's mistake by giving me his own copy or just by doing so to give me a warning?

thank you for your time.

It looks like the officer did give you his copy of the ticket, so it is possible that the ticket was never filed since he didn't have a copy to turn in. I would call the court house listed on the back of the ticket and see if they have any record of that ticket ever having been filed with them. If the ticket is not on file then you are probably off the hook.

That certainly looks like the officer’s copy, but it’s a little hard to make out. There are also two white carbon copies of every ticket that can be kept by the officer for notes, etc.

I can see a few other mistakes on the ticket. You’re supposed to write out “Highway Traffic Act”, not use the short form HTA. Should also add “commercial motor vehicle” to the short form wording since it’s the higher fine.

Yes, I did call the court. and they said that I have 2 options: 1, go to court; 2, don't pay. and they also mentioned that the officer probably couldn't find his copy! that's why it wasn't in the system.

and cus I am a out of province driver from BC, and the officer also gave me a warning about of not changed to ON license in time(I told him Ive been in ON for more than 1 month), also have a BC plate. maybe he gave me two warnnings by giving his copy too(but why issued the ticket in the first place, don't understand). the police officer looks very young though(25 years old, looks a bit nice too, male, probably he did make a mistake I guess.)
