How do I reduce the charge of an expired license plate?

Unread post by Mazgazine1 on

I read this topic about an expired license plate:
http://www.ontariohighwaytrafficact.com/topic3100.html

A forum member in that topic (named Stanton) said "If it's the cost of the fine that's your concern, request a first attendance meeting with the Crown Prosecutor. Show them proof that you renewed your plate right away and they'll probably offer you a significantly reduced fine (possibly $40-$50) if you plead guilty."

I am in London, Ontario, and I had asked to dispute the charge (its an extra $110 over top of the renewal of $75, I didn't want to pay that much of a penalty...). My court date is March 15th, and I have my receipts and information to prove that I was able to renew my plate as soon as I could. (I was on the highway, had to drive to Woodstock for the renewal).

Where do I go get the information to call the Crown Prosecutor? Is it possible to do this before the court date? I wish I found this forum earlier, so I wasn't clogging up the court system.. The phone numbers given on this site are for the court house on 80 Dundas Street , where as my court date is at 824 Dundas street.

Any help or advice is appreciated, thanks!

It is not really a big deal.

Is your time worth it?
Do you want just to keep your license clean?
It is not easy to deal with court process.
