My name is Michael and I have been given 2 summons.One with stunt driving going 161 on the 417 which is a posted 100km/h and another for novice driver b.a.c above zero.My court date is on the 27th of September .Im 22 years old have had my g2 for over a year with only one other speeding ticket which was 15 over.My question is how can he charge me with stunt driving if I wasnt performing a stunt I was simply speeding i was not racing anyone or anything thing like that just driving in the left lane extremely fast which I know is wrong obviously.So far I have had my license and car impounded for 7 days which is going to cost me 700 to get back along with another 150 to get my license again temporarily so far I'm already down 850 and from what I have read on many sites that is the least of my worries.If convicted I face a 2000 minimum and a 10000 max along with possible 2 year suspension and a 6 month period of jail time.I know people say hire a paralegal and I have looked into x copper but have heard mix reviews about them.Im not saying I don't deserve to be punished for what I have done but this is serious I already have to sell my car which I paid 7k for 6 months ago just to cover all the cost I will be facing if convicted.And if convicted and my license is suspended for another 30 days i have also been told i will lose my job due to the fact i was hired to drive .Is there anyway to get these charges lessened so I will not become uninsurable and loss my job do the courts even care what you have gone through before even being convicted.I feel like I'm awaiting trail for murder right now because this is a life ruining charge if convicted .l know this is a massive post so I thank anyone is advance who takes the time to read it.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢d suggest seeing what type of deal the Crown is willing to offer on your first attendance date. You can always request a free consultation with a paralegal afterwards to see if they can offer you anything better.
Since you are a G2 driver, you're subject to Novice Driver Escalating Sanctions:Michaelbsubaru wrote:And if convicted and my license is suspended for another 30 days...
- Your first offense (stunt driving) is a 4 or more demerit point conviction. It will carry a 30 day suspension
- Your second offense (BAC above 0) is a violation of your graduated license conditions. As a second offense, it will carry a 90 day suspension
- Your third violation of your conditions or conviction of a 4 or more point offense will see your license cancelled altogether.
And when I was pulled over for the stunt driving he said he had clocked me at 161 he then told me to turn off my car and remove the keys.I was smoking a cigarette at the time and he asked if I had been drinking I said "no".So why give me a breathalyzer ? It was not a ride program and I did not leave my lane or have a slurr in my speech I doubt he smelt alcohol from the car because it was 5 hours from my last beer and I only had 2.And if there was a smell coming from my car it would have been from all the smoke and the fast food (a&w) I just ate.On what grounds did he have to give me a breathalyzer test? there was no sobriety test or anything like that .He can't possibly be going on the fact I was smoking a cigarette can he?
And respectfully, if you only had two beers five hours before being stopped, there is no way you should have registered a BAC above zero. Either you had some very large beers or your timeline is off. Do you know what you actually registered when you provided your sample?
