Toronto cops are the absolute lowest.....
The only thing lower is Toronto parking enforment......
I am going to fight this ticket for sure.
Hey, did you faught for yourself? or you hired someone to do it for you?
I cant rememebr the legal term for it but what i did was request to meet with someone about the ticket. The meeting was basically the last step before it would go to court. I met with the person (a judge maybe?) and he got rid of the ticket right then so it never made it to court.
Hope this helps, sorry my memory is so vague but it was a few years ago it happened.
What happened to the good ol' days?
It was probably the Crown Attorney (Prosecutor). I'm pretty sure this is a Strict Liability offense, which means the Crown can win a conviction based on the illegal act, but you can defeat the charge by showing you exercised "due diligence". (ie. "The light was working when you started your trip.")I hate Tickets wrote: I met with the person (a judge maybe?) and he got rid of the ticket right then so it never made it to court.
I hope you follow-up with the results.
