Re: no disclosure - made a u-turn at a no u-turn intersection

When did you receive your Notice of Trial? You requested disclosure 1-2 months before your court date. It's not exactly what they'd consider an ample amount of time for turnaround on your request. What will likely happen is they'll offer you a copy on your court date. They'll probably push to procee...

Re: Red light- Proceed before green - Collision involved.

Probably should invest in a dashcam after this one. This is one of those situations where you're probably more likely to have this case dismissed based on a witness not showing up than anything else. Wouldn't exactly be a bad thing to request a trial and go from there. Remember, the charge under the...

Re: Received a call from TSI (Transworld Systems Canada) about an POA

Any updates? Any unpaid fines against your license would've almost certainly resulted in an automatic license suspension. Unpaid parking tickets maybe? Usually, they wont let you renew your plates until you pay the outstanding fine. You can purchase an abstract directly online that will show any con...

Re: How do I enter photographic evidence from FaceBook?

Do you have some more information regarding your ticket? It's quite unusual that someone would want to prove their windows are tinted. Did you receive a ticket for the rear windows or all windows? Tint laws apply to the windshield and the front driver and passenger windows. They do not apply to any ...

Re: Took a right turn at a four-way intersection, only to find a school bus stopped on the other side of road

If an officer didn't pull you over at the scene, you will be charged as the owner of the vehicle and not the driver. Whomever the vehicle is registered to will receive the ticket. The ticket follows your license plate rather than your drivers license. Just because you may happen to own that vehicle,...

Re: Surrender for reasonable inspection - what does that mean exactly?

There are a couple reasons in Ontario where an officer can pull you over without cause. Those can be: (a) To check your driving related documentation. (b) inspect the mechanical fitness of your vehicle and/or (c) to check your sobriety A sobriety check would, best case scenario, require you to roll ...

Re: Improper left turn on Old Stock Yard & W Toronto Street

I'd recommend doing whatever you're comfortable with. If you want to request an early resolution, you can do that. If you don't like what you hear, you still have an opportunity to request a trial. You can also request a trial and hope for some lucky break along the way. Note, you'll also go through...

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

Speeding is what they call an "absolute liability offense." In short, this means you were either travelling the speed limit or you weren't. They are not going to consider whether you were driving 110, 120 or 130. There's no in-between here. "I was driving 120, not 134" would mean...

Re: Improper left turn on Old Stock Yard & W Toronto Street

I don't think they'd have much to offer you at an early resolution meeting. There's not much they can do to reduce this particular charge. Police dashcams in Ontario aren't as common as you might think. The majority of cases will not have video evidence simply because there isn't any. If you do want...

Re: Speeding ticket for the driver and not wearing belt for the back seat passenger

This is normal.

I'm assuming the speed limit was 100km.

If so, the offer will likely be something like 15 or 29km over.

You can accept it or not. If not, you'll continue with your trial.

Re: Speeding ticket for the driver and not wearing belt for the back seat passenger

"Witness" would be if, lets say, you were in an accident and the police arrived after the fact. The charge would likely rely on witness statements from those who were there. In the case of your ticket, the officer was involved beginning to end. Regardless, it's not really a big deal if it ...

Re: Video evidence - Wrongful charge for hand held device

If there's video evidence, it will be provided upon request.

More times than not, there isn't any.

If not, you'll likely just receive a copy of the offers notes.

Re: Can I ask for case dismiss - Court date is given now for a early 2020 ticket

You should probably worry about reopening your case as soon as possible. I believe you have 15 days to do so. (Might be 30 but I believe it's 15 for reopening, 30 for appeal)

As far as unreasonable delays go, you did receive your ticket during a global pandemic.

Good luck.

Just to add, you can always call your insurance provider anonymously and ask them the same question for piece of mind.
