As smooth as a slimy fish. Officer didn't show up and the charge was dropped. Wore my best tux and the lawyers and judge thought I was an attorney, hah. Afterwards my girlfriend accidentally closed my door with the keys still in the car, so I had to spend $35 for a tow truck to open it LOL Today was...

I just went out at the break of dawn and recorded several cycles of the lights with my video camera and came to this: (This is for the lights facing me the day I got the ticket) Green - 40 seconds average Green, Pedestrian flashing - 17 seconds each time Yellow - 4 seconds average All red - 3 second...

How do I go about pleading to the disobey lane light? Where do I go? What do I need to say? If my trial is set for 1:30pm, I expect my name to be called around 2pm-2:30pm. Let's say I arrive around 1pm. If the officer plans to show up, she should already be in the courtroom at this time, right? Is i...

Yes, I realize amber means stop. I never accelerate when faced with an amber light. What do you think, Radar? Would I be at an advantage if I go with FyreStorm's idea? Basically, you want me to just go to the court, ask the clerk to speak with a prosecutor, and tell him to charge me with something I...

Thanks Radar, that is good information. If you concede you went thru the amber (which is still the same fine and points), why not go see the prosecutor early on and discuss disobey lane light...$110, no points? How is going through a yellow light the same as going through red? Are you saying that ev...

"In all likelihood the officer first observed my vehicle pass the white mark, then observed the red light (which had cycled from amber) and decided I must have entered the intersection while it was red." How strong is the opening to that statement? Is it wise to use "in all likelihood" or "the likel...

Heh, I completely misunderstood your post. I would do better with point form anyways since I just need to remember the talking point; the rest is all in my head. Only a day away...getting nervous. I've scanned the officer's notes so you could take a look. Maybe you folks might pick up on something I...

It's not something I do often, but I consider myself a good actor so I can appear confident regardless :lol: Question: would I be allowed to have my statement printed and in my hands? I obviously wouldn't be reading from it line-by-line, but I would like to have it for reference in case I miss somet...

Sorry about including the name, didn't think of that. Edited another instance of it out myself.

Removed the irrelevant information as you suggested. Better now?

On the morning of January 24th 2010, at approximately 10:45am, I was on my way home traveling westbound on the QEW after having taken my mother to work. I exited the QEW at Cawthra Rd. and proceeded to travel southbound on Cawthra in the far right lane. Approximately 230m from the intersection of Ca...

I put a lot of thought into this yesterday. On one hand I'd like to reschedule it to give myself more time to mount a proper defense (and increase the chances of the officer not showing up); but on the other hand I'd like to just get in there, present my case, and get it over with. I think I'm going...

Yeah, I just need a bit more time to deal with this as I've got major projects to worry about right now. Thanks, I'll go on Wednesday right after class.

Can this be done at any point before the trial date? Will I need any documentation if I say it's my grandmother's funeral?

Most importantly, would it work in my favour?
