Re: Need some advice on lawsuit with ex-doctor

You're right that you're SOL on a lawsuit. The Limitations Act, 2002 , is crystal clear on a two-year limitation period for almost any cause of action in Ontario. With regard to a complaint, you would have to check the policies and procedures of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The...

Re: Speeding 134km/h over - disclosure and my dashcam evidence

That's a risky strategy. The officer will testify that he is trained to estimate speed visually (most of these guys can accurately estimate a speed to within a few kilometres per hour). He'll also say that he determined visually that you were the fastest vehicle. The officer's notes are simply that:...

Re: Received a Speed Camera Ticket - a couple of questions

Thanks for that reply, bobajob. I haven't been here in a while, so this is the first time I've seen it. There's still been no word regarding the Early Resolution request. Perhaps we'll eventually hear something.

Re: Received a Speed Camera Ticket - a couple of questions

That's exactly what it is. My wife was charged as the owner because the camera only captures the plate. I have since found certification of the device's accuracy on the City's website and have clarified that these cameras are only used in Community Safety Zones. The set fine is $5 per km/h over the ...

Re: Careless driving to Turn Not In Safty?

Had the Justice of the Peace not already accepted your guilty plea? If the JP accepts it, you're done, regardless of what you may say afterwards.

Received a Speed Camera Ticket - a couple of questions

Good evening, everyone. My wife received a speed camera ticket today. The ticket is for driving 54 km/h in a 40 km/h zone. She's planning to request an Early Resolution and I have a couple of questions. Subsection 4 (4) of O. Reg. 398/19 states that the device must be tested and established to be ac...

Re: Is the U-Turn legit? For some reason I get honked at here trying to perform this U-Turn in Kitchener.

Here's what the Highway Traffic Act states: U-turns prohibited 143 No driver or operator of a vehicle upon a highway shall turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction when, (a) upon a curve where traffic approaching the vehicle from either direction cannot be seen by the driver of th...

Re: Using a blue and red strobe light and a siren on multilane highways

Your point is fair. I, too, can't stand drivers who "park" themselves in the passing lane and back traffic up. There are plenty of ways to increase awareness. Kerry Schmidt of the OPP has a video about it. I'm sure there are other videos, social media posts, etc. Violating the HTA and bein...

Pulled over for speeding; only received a warning

Hi all. I haven't posted in a while, but I had a question. A couple of weeks ago, I was pulled over for speeding. The officer said he had clocked me at 75 in a 50. I was actually going faster. Yes, I know I was speeding; I momentarily lost my focus and hit the pedal a little too hard. In the end, th...

Re: Fail to Stop - Amber Light Section 144(15)

It will boil down to whether the JP accepts your testimony that you would have been unable to stop safely or the officer's testimony that you could have stopped. You'd have to say how close to the intersection you were, how quickly you were driving, how long it would have taken to stop, how hard you...

Careless Driving charge from at-fault collision

Hi everyone. I haven't been here in a while. I hope everyone has been doing as well as possible during the pandemic. My wife was in an at-fault collision last week. It was snowing and she was driving about 20 km/h. Approaching a light, she braked. She hit some slush or ice, the ABS kicked in and she...

Re: 15KM/h over (Ticket was Reduced from 29KM/h over)

Yes. When you get there, the prosecutor will ask you how you intend to proceed. You can then plead guilty to the speed of 85. That will be your last chance to do so. If you plead not guilty, the first thing the prosecutor will do when the trial starts is amend the charge to 99.
