the car is not registered under my name... does that make any diff?
1) No Insurance
2) Invalid Plates
I went to court as per the summons. I explained to the JP that, at that time, I felt it was safer to just drive the short distance home, rather than continue to try towing it. She was in a good mood that day and lowered the fine to $250 (from the minimum at the time of $500). I think the minimum today is $5,000 so I would strongly suggest you speak to a lawyer! Perhaps he can work out a plea deal with the crown that would see you pleading to a lesser charge.
