Speeding ticket - first ever

Unread post by chuckiec on

Been driving for 22 years - pristine driving record until last week. Got a ticket for 135KM on the 401 - REALLY?!?!? There is no way I was going that fast - I was in a rental, with literally 4 cars around me, which were ALL doing the same speed as me. Can I dispute this charge? If I were to dispute this charge, are chances of a reduced fine likely? I couldn't believe the number of cops pulling people over on the 401 this weekend!!

Whether or not other cars were traveling at the same speed as you isn't going to help your case.

You can get a reduced charged just by asking as long as you're willing to plead guilty to the new charge. It's almost guaranteed they'll offer you something like 29km (3 points).

It's a long weekend. What's there not to believe?
