I recently about a month ago picked up a speeding ticket for going 20km/h over the limit (100 in an 80 zone).
I was given an "Offence Notice" and a "Payment Notice". The payment notice said I could just pay the ticket online at paytickets.ca.
The payment notice also says to mail the payment notice with the payment enclosed and send it to the courthouse.
I sort of assumed that if I went online and just paid the ticket there, I wouldn't have to mail anything in or anything. So I paid it through the website.
I just got an e-mail back a couple of weeks later saying my payment had been refunded, with the reasoning being "ticket invalid".
Was I supposed to mail the notice and then pay online or something?
Or is my ticket just cancelled or something? I purchased a copy of my 3 year drivers license today and it has no offences or demerit points listed on it.
Can anyone clarify this for me?
