10 days ago my husband was pulled over for speeding in my prius (apparently it's possible). The officer reduced the ticket at the side of the highway from 25 over in a 100 zone down to 19 over; however, he also charged him for failing to sign the car ownership even though it's in my name.
While I think the speeding ticket is fair I don't believe my husband should be penalized for my failing to sign the ownership, nor do I want to see 2 minor offences go against his insurance at renewal time. Should he take option 3 on both tickets and we can speak to the prosecutor to see if they can combine everything into one fine?
And on a side rant I've never forgotten to sign any ownerships before this car, and I've never bought a car from a new car dealership before the prius. In the past the MTO or used dealers had always told me to sign the ownership when I had bought cars. Very disappointed with the Toyota dealer for not mentioning it!
