Re: Did not stop for a school bus with stop sign

If you're asking in regards to a potential ticket, they will never know who has access to your vehicle nor are you required to volunteer that information. It will never get that far anyways. They're not going to be that invested in you. They will charge you as the owner and move on to the next perso...

Re: Did not stop for a school bus with stop sign

There are two ways to be charged for this particular offense. You're either charged as the driver or the owner. To be charged as a driver, you'd almost certainly have to be pulled over at the scene. The officer would then be able to identify you and attach your license number to your ticket. You can...

Re: 87km/h in a 60 zone (NCC land, pulled over and ticked by RCMP)

So what should I do? The ticket hasn’t been reduced yet, so are my odds of getting it reduced to maybe 15km/h over good? Is radar gun evidence flimsy in court? The odds of having the ticket reduced are pretty good. You're only really saving on the fine amount. Insurance is going to treat 27 and 15 ...

Re: Caught holding my phone - what are my options?

Other than requesting a trial and hoping the officer doesn't show up, which is a long shot in itself, you don't exactly have much to go on.

Re: Caught holding my phone - what are my options?

As you seem to be already aware, you only need to be holding your phone for a conviction. They wont need to prove anything beyond that. So, it becomes a case of did you or did you not hold your phone. will I even get a plea deal? There has to be an equivalent charge that's lower if they're going to ...

Re: Rear Ender - Charged at Collision Reporting Centre?

Yes, that can be some of it.

Because it's a rear end collision, the driver from the back is almost always entirely at fault. HTA requires you to always keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front.

That will play a role into any potential charge.

Re: Rear Ender - Charged at Collision Reporting Centre?

It's not that much different than an officer showing up to the scene.

Whether or not you'll be charged will depend on the evidence in front of them.

But yes, it's possible.

Re: Careless driving to Turn Not In Safty?

Insurance providers group all offenses into three categories. A conviction will either fall into the minor, major, or serious table. All offenses in a category will receive the same surcharge percentage. Example: Minor (0-5%), Major (15%), Serious (100%). In terms of insurance, it's best not to judg...

Re: Choosing option 2 for speeding: Any risk at ER Prosecutor may bump up speed to original in a Code R ticket?

Demerit points, for the most part, are meaningless. Novice drivers (G1,G2) have to worry about demerit points because there's a low bar for collecting points. Fully licensed drivers need to collect 15 points before they are suspended. Points expire 2 years from the day you receive your ticket, so yo...

Re: Failing to stop at stop sign

This forum deals with the Ontario Highway Traffic Act. Alberta has the Traffic Safety Act, I believe. Traffic rules vary province to province. That being said, I think we can handle most of your questions because they're not going to be all that different. It's completely normal for an officer to no...

Re: Given 65KM/H in 50KM zone as speed limit increased to 70 KM/H

The speed would change after the posted sign, not before it. I was at 70, not even 10 feet from the sign I even looked at my speed as I passing the cop and it was at 60, but he tried telling me I was doing 70, which I know I most certainly was not. If you're admittedly doing 70 before the sign, then...

Re: G2 and and B.A.C above zero ticket

Just one more thing to add. For insurance purposes, convictions are split up into three categories. Those are minor, major, and serious. These three categories have their own surcharge percentage. Everything that falls into one category will be issued the same surcharge for determining rates. Exampl...

Re: G2 and and B.A.C above zero ticket

Besides the 2 tickets, will she need to go to court? She is only charged. She will still need to be convicted. This will be a whole conversation in itself depending how you proceed. The 3 day suspension itself should not impact your rates. It's what they call an "administrative suspension." Insuran...
