Several years ago, my buddy and I were towing home my latest project, a 1965 Comet. Well the rope kept breaking and it was getting dark, so I decided to drive it the remaining mile or so. Well I got busted just a couple blocks from my house:

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.
