Re: Escalating Sanctions for hybrid drivers

Again, that's just my interpretation of the regulation. I'm not a legal expert, so you may want to confirm that with someone else if you're friend's licence is riding on it. Here's the actual section from the o reg. An offence under the Act set out in Column 1 of the Table to the Demerit Point Regu...

Escalating Sanctions for hybrid drivers

Hi everyone, I tried the search but didn't find much on this topic, so I would like to know if anyone here can clarify this situation for me. A friend of mine got his M2 in June of 2009, and has held a full G license for 6-7 years. AFAIK he has pleaded guilty to two minor (speeding) tickets, one in ...

Community Safety Zones- Related Question

I'm curious about speeding tickets that involve community safety zones. Does the Crown have to establish the legitimacy of a community safety zone in order to justify the fine? Because if there is no evidence of a community safety zone (ie. relevant municipal/regional by-law outlining existence and ...

Sure, but they're not really used to seeing people successfully defending themselves... The same way the officer doesn't realize he's missed something, the JP and crown often don't realize it either until someone points it out. I'm pretty sure in this case the JP was ready to find against the accuse...

If you have the time, I would do it.

It seems unreasonable for the police officer to not allow you to produce your documents, especially if they were nearby. And if you were on the side of the road, just trying to find the trail, some would argue that you were not on the highway.

^^ Thanks for the update! Yes, this seems to be what happens on a regular basis...what I have yet to see is a recollection of a case that actually "went to trial" without a "deal" and was stayed/not guilty. I'll give you one of those (not to hijack the thread). Defendant was over and ticketed at 30...

I thought that template evidence was inadmissable in court, but I can't remember why... Something about it affecting the officer's independant recollection and being "canned evidence" or something to that effect.

Some of it can be outright unbelievable sometimes.... I wonder where the shift happened on a societal level. Like, I somehow doubt that a lot of people in the 1950s and 1960s North America were spoiling their kids to the degree that is more common today. Am I wrong? I'm too young to actually know fo...
