Re: Nabbed on the 400

So here's my afternoon in court. Got to court early. The police officer arrived there soon after. Spoke to prosecutor:  She said, are you looking for a deal?  I said, I'm open to suggestions. She wrote down 120 in 100. $90 (plus cost and surcharge $115) 3 points (instead of $329 and ...

Re: Nabbed on the 400

I was hoping a moderator or administrator would respond to the uploaded disclosure files. I go into court in @ 5 hours.

Re: Nabbed on the 400

Further thoughts: these notes seem like they were written after, perhaps well after the event. How else could the test at the end of the shift be inserted before the time of offense. Is it common or typical practice to note your qualifications in your notes. Time on ticket is 0707.

Re: Nabbed on the 400

So the prosecutor’s office finally sent disclosure at 9:17, today Tuesday, January 07, 2014– a day before my scheduled trail. It is, not surprisingly, incomplete. The time stamp indicates they have had it since Nov. 1/2013. It also says it was disclosed on Dec. 11/13 and, d...

Re: Careless driving summons

I wouldn't be mentioning the foggy windshield. The obvious follow up question would be:why didn't you pull over if you couldn't see? Or why did you start driving with the windshield in an unsafe condition. Hopefully a moderator will chime in, they have a great deal more expertise. Make sure you tick...

Re: Careless driving summons

Wow, sounds completely bogus. I had a similar experience at a RIDE program. The officer had his hand up and was wearing a black glove -- I though he was waving me through, which sometimes happens. I had to slam on my brakes, but I was never charged with careless. Whatever you do, don't mention the f...

Re: Failing to move to the right for emergency vehicle

Wow, it sounds really fishy. However, there examples of owners being charged with failure to stop for school buses without actually being pulled over. Fine, but no points. Hopefully, some more knowledgable posters will chime in.

Re: Failing to move to the right for emergency vehicle

Did he ask for or see your license. If not, how can he prove you were driving?

Re: Reduced from 40 over to disobey sign

Sounds like good deal -- hope I'm that lucky next week. Do you have to reply to the offer? Maybe if they think you're going to take it, the officer might not show up. Sounds like either way it's worth the trip.

Re: Nabbed on the 400

Thanks for all the help. I was wondering if I should show up with any case law, to bolster my request for dismissal due to missing, inadequate, or in-timely disclosure?

Have tried to follow up on phone today -- no one in office, so I left a message. I have so far recieved nothing. Emailed a...

Re: 40 over on the 401 near chatham kent

I haven't fought one in Chatam, but I had a similar experience in Barrie. Check Neo's post. That and others provide a great deal of useful information. I'm currently waiting for disclosure. http://www.ticketcombat.com/ is very helpful.
