Re: Improper signage nearly leads to an accident - who would be at fault?

I've done some more reading on the issue. It looks like municipalities in Ontario can be liable for damages if they don't maintain roads up to certain minimum standards, as established in Ontario Regulation 612/06. Safety issues addressed in the Minimum Maintenance Standards include: - ice on roadwa...

Re: Improper signage nearly leads to an accident - who would be at fault?

There is some confusion here, so I've gone ahead and drawn a diagram https://i.imgur.com/Q0pz5Zb.png As you can see, the signage says that the right lane is ending (that's the lane the bus was in). But in reality, it was the left lane that was ending (my lane). Having seen the incorrect signage, I w...

Improper signage nearly leads to an accident - who would be at fault?

I was driving down a two lane road, in the left lane. As I approached a construction zone, the two lanes merged into one. There was a sign that said the right lane ends, BUT this sign was incorrect. It was the left lane that ended. Unfortunately I was driving according to what the sign said, and imp...

Re: How long does it typically go to trial in Toronto?

It depends on how bad a boy you have been and what court house you are heading to. More serious charges tend get bumped up where you receive a summons to attend court on a specific date and set a date for future hearings/trial. I've been hearing from 4 to 12+ months depending on the officers schedu...

Re: How long does it typically go to trial in Toronto?

I found this after a few hours of reading around: In Toronto, however, it takes almost 14 months to go to trial. How many hundreds of traffic tickets has the cop written since then? Will he remember every single one or what happened a year and a half ago? Of course not. That's why the chances of the...

What happens if the other driver doesnt come to court?

I was involved in a two vehicle collision. The cop told me that if I go to court and the other driver doesn't show up, then the case will be dropped and the ticket thrown out. Is this true?

How long does it typically go to trial in Toronto?

Is it typical for it to take longer than 11 months? I'm trying to gauge my chances of being eligible for an 11(b).

Also, how typical is it for the officer to not come to court?

This is for a careless driving case.

Location on ticket does not exist - Is this a fatal error?

I was reviewing the information on my careless driving ticket, and I noticed that the location on the ticket does not exist. He wrote that the incident happened on Lakeshore Avenue and Lower Jarvis Street in Toronto. However, the incident actually happened on Lakeshore Boulevard East and Lower Jarvi...
