So, what do you think I should do at the meeting with the prosecutor -- settle with canceling the "failing to show insurance card" ticket and plead guilty to the "failing to obey sign" ticket (I assume that's what prosecutor will want to do?) ... or go to court for both tickets?


I ticket has points associated an one does not.....which one do you think you would want withdrawn? Unless you are a video game nut, then more points the better :lol:


Well, I know what I want... I just assumed the prosecutor would want me to plead guilty to the ticket with points... no?

The Crown doesn't want to go to trial any more than you do! Explain that your insurance company will jack your rates sky-high if you get points. I'm sure he'll be much more likely to accept YOUR plea offer if he see's that you are aware of the ramifications involved.

Turns out I was right. With proof of insurance, the prosecutor quickly withdrew the insurance ticket, and we were left to negotiate about the "failing to obey sign" ticket (she didn't want to withdraw the "failing to obey sign" ticket and let me plead guilty to the no insurance ticket). We talked past each other for a bit, and eventually settled on a "failing to proceed on green light" charge, which carries no demerit point.

I'm happy with the result. It was just a bit stressful because she wanted me to admit guilt to the "failing to obey sign" before she would tell me what she would change the charge to.
