One of the officers may correct me if I'm wrong but I seem to remember from high school law that there is are steps that much be followed in order to officially place somebody under arrest and under citizens arrest. I think it was something along the lines of you must declare who you are and why you...

Re: Passengers on the bed of a truck

Not adding any info, but I asked three different officers (2 Ottawa police and 1 OPP and received 3 divergent opinions). Well I think this answers the question. Depending on the officer you may or may not get away with it without getting a ticket so you'll have to weigh your options on this one. If...

Best bet would be to bring the updated documents with you to the prosecutor and see what they'll do for you. I imagine you should at the very least be able to get one dropped assuming you're apologetic and polite.

"Ignorant" - lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.

PS I just thought I'd mention that even though I don't currently own an overpriced car, I sure do enjoy being able to drive the car I have! :lol:

Stunt driving knocked down to 15km/h over at roadside! That can happen? You should realize you were given a HUGE break and there's a good chance if you take it to trial the prosecutor won't be too happy that you're looking for a further reduction and amend it back up to 116 in a 60. My suggestion if...

I don't know about you, but I sure feel great knowing that money is being to have this prosecutor go to appeals court over this case. Why even waste the resources fighting this even further from the city's perspective? You must have made that prosecutor look really dumb in court or maybe you looked ...

Okay in regards to your inquiry you should know that in Canada our civil law system isn't any where near as F***ed as our neighbours to the South. In Canada you are typically only able to collect two different kinds of damages: special and general damages. Special damages are those which compensate ...

Re: Forced to abandon appeal.

And on a more serious note, can I open a suit against the department because the officer forged my witness statement, admitted to it, and may have therefore commited pergury? (This is an exploritory question so please don't grill me.) Just to clarify: by opening a suit, do you mean you're thinking ...

Re: Ticket of G2 License with BAC above zero ?

Will it go on my record at all? And do I get charged anymore than the $110.00? And would this affect my insurance? Also, if I fight it, does it get cleared completely off my record and if I fight it does it still affect my insurance? I was also wondering, when going to fight it, in this situation w...

Should have break checked him. That's also stunt driving per O. Reg 455/07: True but its not what you know its what you can prove. It would be hard to prove intent. Very true, it's probably harder to prove in court. That said, I still find it scary that my car can get impounded and I'd have to pay ...

Re: great I like that reply

There are tools out there that say they can detect radar or lidars. I don't know if it has to actually hit your car or not to be detected. Then you can record the time. At least you might be able to date and time stamp. This could work if you don't mind fighting one extra ticket because radar detec...

Oh noes, I'm wondering if I have grounds to request a Stay under 11b of the Charter ? The new court date will place me at 16 months when I go to trial again. Seems unreasonable ... You can always request an 11b it's just whether or not the JP accepts your argument. 16 months puts you in a pretty go...
