HTA and CAIA convictions will affect your insurance premiums; prosecutor and officer can/will lie through their teeth about the insurance effects of convictions.

Yes it does. Any minor tickets count. Basically he's decided that he's not willing to go from 5 to 1 ticket so he's picked one of the little ones. You either fight them all or live with the offer.

Re: Stunt driving ?? - 135 in 80 zone

I did receive temporary license in the mail today. It also states a non-temporary one will follow shortly. Though I have not paid any re-instatements fees yet. And the mailing does not include the amount required. It's good that they do that ... saves some frustration, of having to go to an MTO loc...

Re: Stunt driving charge at officers discretion ???

I'm not sure why someone offered a reduced charge of speeding, would choose to proceed to trial. Principle, I guess ... I'd say it depends on the circumstances. Someone who speeds 50+ (stunt label or not) would probably be silly to not consider any reduced charge that puts them 49-. It's the differ...

Re: When best to request disclosure ? ...

Update: Spoke to prosecutors office ... caledon east . There is no way to get disclosure before the initial first summons appearance. They simply don't do it. They stated you will be given disclosure on first appearance to summons. They stated they don't even know if "package" from officer has been ...

Re: Stunt driving charge at officers discretion ???

1. The officer does not have to charge the stunt driving that is up to their discretion. Reductions on the side of the road happens all the time. I do not work a highway but I have rarely encountered someone going 60+ km over the speed limit. 50 over is really fast for most roads. Therefore, if som...

Let's pretend an officer MUST charge someone (they don't). What's the argument? That no one should get a break? >> What's the argument?

Re: Stunt driving charge at officers discretion ???

I'm not even sure what we're arguing here. If you've committed the offense, what's the difference? You aren't losing anything. You either get a freebie or you don't. As for the officer being "judge, jury, and executioner", it has nothing to do with him. If you're charged with stunt driving, you get...

Re: Stunt driving charge at officers discretion ???

What I find helps a lot, be honest, apologize, and acknowledge that you've done something wrong. I'm probably the last one to talk, but last year, I was pulled over for stunt driving 4 times. I think the most I was caught over was 96 km/h over (146 in a posted 50). I think the worst punishment I go...

Re: Stunt driving charge at officers discretion ???

R. v. Paraschiew [2012] O.J. No. 4085 In a weird twist of fate, this appeal court decision shows that being charged with Stunt Driving would have been more advantageous to the defence than being charged with S128 Speeding. Solely because with Stunt Driving you're afforded a due diligence whereas S1...

Re: Stunt driving charge at officers discretion ???

Because stunt is defined/redefined as 50 over, among others conditions, reasonable/probable grounds just needs 50 over. Once that occurs, it seems, officers MUST suspend license/vehicle ... without discretion. I was wondering if the law is worded that way specifically to allow officers to take licen...

Re: Distance to follow...ask yourself

I didn't want to put two cents on another thread. I do have over 400hrs of speciality training in collisions. I know we see this all the time and to me it is just baffling. Why are people following too close on the highways and city streets? Ps... I always wonder why people are so close even in a d...
