Just got my court date, Dec 22/09. Any more input / ideas?? I'll post how I make out.


Do you have any pictures of the trailer and load? Can you recreate the images? Pictures are worth a thousand words........Video may help too, take the trailer and load over some bumps.....etc....

Yup, got the camera out as soon as I got home and took pics of the trailer and load from all angles, along with tape measure showing how large the load was and how much was sticking over the trailer side.

Just came back from the court house. Went armed with my defence (as we discussed here) and pictures. Saw the officer was there. Spoke to the prosecutor as does everyone before the judge comes into the courtroom. Explained my position - that the load (cabinet) was 3/4 inside the trailer and 1/4 was up over the 2 foot side, that it was secure, and the law does not require the load to be tied down if the load is in no danger of dislodging etc. She stated that she would debate that it has to be tied down. I told her my interpretation of HTA Sec 111(2) was "..... loaded [OR] bound [OR] secured [OR] contained or covered .. key words being OR OR OR. I think that made her unsure. She asked if I was CVOR which I am not. After that she WITHDREW the charge. Guess she didn't want to risk a Loss against her trial record

Thanks all for your advice and input. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Congrats on an easy win! Shows what coming prepared can do to prosecution's cases.
