will disclosure always tell you who will appear as a witness..I requested disclosure and all I got was a photocopy of the cops notes, and the accident reports...at this point I don't really know if they have any witnesses beyond the cop that issued me the ticket?

thanks hwybear..the officers only recollection of the incident will be from referring to his notes. If his notes do no correspond with the official accident reports, would that not cast some doubt on his recollection of the events.? I am quite sure they have no witnesses who can testify that they ac...

so when I asked for disclosure, should I have specifically asked for a list of any witnesses? I assumed that would be a given but only got copies of accident reports and the officers notes? Is it too late to go back again and ask for more disclosure, or better to question at trial why further disclo...

chronic accident locations

i am trying to find out if there is any central repository for collision locations within Hamilton Area...I am trying to argue a case for a poorly designed exit ramp from the 403, and although I have heard anecdotally that the exit is a trap for repeated accidents and collisions, I am not sure where...

I requested a trial date and disclosure. when the disclosur documents arrived included was an application for an adjournment due to the officer being on training course during the scheduled trial date.

it was a 2001 Ford Focus I think, it got damaged both front and back, probably a write off, the car she hit from behind was also a Ford, newer, like 2004..

thanks for the advice

racer, just another thought... :?: you seem to know the exit I am referring to well, and if what I am hearing about how cursed this exit is, would there be any value in my researching and documenting the volume of MVA's that occur at this same location, and that this might give some weight to claimi...

what I am saying is i did not knowing move into a lane where it was clear to me as I made the lane change that traffic was stopped...the lane change was made well before the accident, but on the curve in the highway (and a dip under the overpass) and although it became clear to me after completing t...

how to request a trial date?

if my ticket is issued in Hamilton and I want to request a trial date, can I go to the Provincial court office in my home town of Milton to request a trial date? i never go to Hamilton and would prefer not to just to appear and request a trial date...and request dislcosure.

the ticket says Section 142 (1) and he specifically told me he had the option of charging me 2 different ways, one which carried 3 demerit points and this one that carries 2 demerit points (like he was doing me a favor). Actually i have been reviewing your site and the step by step instructions...ve...

need help -unsafe lane change?

I was involved in a collision a week ago and the OPP wrote me a ticket for "Change Lane, not in safety" and he told me it was 2 demerit points...I can find no mention of this in any online HTA material? I want to fight the ticket but not sure how to do this...so looking for someone with so...
