It means you are off the hook.

wow that would make life alot easier... it was for a careless driving ticket i got on my motorcycle after a 18yr girl cut me off on the gardiner near the the jameson const. area. I was given the ticket cuz I hit her from the back and i was told i was going too fast although it was 3:40pm on a weekday and during that time it was always heavy traffic since it bottle necked under the bridge. Its hard to believe they would just write off such a ticket without trial, could there be another reason as to why they would not proceed with giving me a trial date?

Not really. If you took your ticket to the courthouse that was listed on the back of the ticket, and that same courthouse is where this notice came from, that's the end of it. If the police do not file the ticket within 7 days, the courts will not accept it. It is possible that the officer was delayed in filing the ticket, but really, there could have been any number of reasons. If you want to be sure, you could call Toronto Court Services and confirm that, in fact, the offence notice was never filed.
