Hi guys, I've been researching but I'm a bit confused as to what I should do if I'm hoping for a ticket to be quashed due to an error.
I received a ticket in a speed trap, for 76 in a 50 (not reduced). The only error I can find on the ticket is that in the "charging act" he wrote "Highway Safety Act". Section was correct.
So I guess question #1: do you think this has a decent chance at being quashed? All I can find online is "maybe".. it doesn't seem to be one of the error types that's a clear yes or no.
Anyway, if I do stand a chance at having the ticket quashed, would I do that by ignoring the ticket, and hoping that the JP finds it improper on its face and quashes it out of hand, then appealing if he doesn't?
Or, should I be requesting a trial and asking for a quash before entering a plea on that day, so that I could at least attempt a defence if the JP allows the ticket to stand?
Thanks in advance for any help
So you are wondering if writing the incorrect ACT but correct SECTION could be considered a fatal error?
I think it is not a fatal error, because it could be easily ammended and the Section is correct.
Highly unlikely, JP most likely will ignore it, find you guilty, and let you re-open the case. The JP doesn't work for you,
