I have a court tmr...can I just pay the fee?

Unread post by lkh5650 on

HI, I have a court date tmr at 1:30 pm
but I don't have time to go there as I am swamped with exams/applications etcs... Can I somehow just pay the ticket (online, via phone, etcs) without going there?
I live at least an hour drive away, and also figured that its not worth the fight as the ticket is only 110$...

Please let me know..

Thank you

It shouldn’t be an issue. The only exception would be if you received a summons versus a regular provincial offences notice. If you fail to show on a summons, a warrant can be issued for your arrest.

Just be aware that if you requested a trial and fail to show, the fine will be slightly higher, I believe by $5. It might be easier to wait until you receive a conviction notice in the mail with the new fine.
