Re: Charge does not match ticket

Oh, one more question... if this goes to trial - could any portion of the ticket be changed under Provincial Offences Act s. 34? eg. could the ticket be amended so that the HTA section cited is changed to the correct section 7? Or do you think at early resolution the prosecutor will see this and jus...

Re: Charge does not match ticket

@argyll, To clarify, this is what is written on the ticket in each section. In "quotes" is what the officer has written. Did commit the offence of: "Fail to surrender permit for motor vehicle." Contrary to: "Highway Traffic Act" Section: "128" Set fine of: "$85.00" / Total Payable: "$110.00" But, as...

Re: Charge does not match ticket

Thanks for the reply.

Any thoughts on the process of requesting a trial, not showing up and being convicted, and then appealing on the basis of wrongful conviction (for speeding when the ticket is clearly about the permit)?

Charge does not match ticket

Hi there, would appreciate if someone can speak to the possibility of this ticket being quashed. Nutshell: the officer's notes are about failure to produce a permit, with the corresponding set fine of $85. However, the HTA section cited is 128, for speeding. Went through a radar trap and was signall...

Re: HTA 144(18.1) - photo evidence of "approaching" the intersection

@argyll, thanks for your replies, I appreciate the counter points to consider.

It's true that I'm being narrowly focused on the details of my particular offence, and while that may be clouding my view of the situation, I do think that the details matter when applying the law.

Re: HTA 144(18.1) - photo evidence of "approaching" the intersection

@argyll, thank you for your response, that gives me something to think about. If I could offer a couple of counter points (which is good practice for me in preparation for court, so thanks again!)... in the "Guide For Defendants in Provincial Offences Cases" it clearly states "For you to be found gu...

Re: Red Light Camera: Front of car over intersection marking????

I've just posted separately on this same subject, but to join in here: @bend said: "The purpose of the first picture is not to show you across the line. It's to show your vehicle at the line while the light is already red. It's to show the light had already been red before you entered the intersecti...

HTA 144(18.1) - photo evidence of "approaching" the intersection

I will be going to trial for my red light camera offence. I'll be arguing two issues, centered on the fact that there are two essential elements of 144(18) - a) a vehicle approaching the intersection shall stop; and b) the vehicle shall not proceed until green. Both essential elements must be contra...
