If you received a ticket at only 10 clicks over the limit, I'm guessing you were actually driving faster, but the officer reduced your speed. If you try to fight the ticket, the prosecutor will amend the charge to reflect your actual speed.
Don't worry about the demerit points. They mean nothing to your insurance company and only come into effect for suspension purposes if you get a whack of tickets.
If you want to delay the conviction then ask for a trial, request disclosure. If the disclosure doesn't arrive in time for you to study it, you can ask for an adjournment. On the day of trial you can go to the court house and see if the officer is there. If (s)he is then you can just say you are going to pay the ticket prior to the start of your trial. Bear in mind that some Crowns call officers in off the road just in time for their trial so if they aren't there at the beginning of the session then it doesn't mean they wouldn't be there for your trial.
All of that takes your time - what is your time worth ?
Former Ontario Police Officer. Advice will become less relevant as the time goes by !
Yes. You can plead guilty right up until the time the clerk asks you how you plead.
No. Because you've avoided the trial, there's no "trouble."
Yes you can.
