Re: 90 in 70 zone reduced to 80-fight or not

In York region the cost was free, I sent in my request on Apr 2013 and received the plan & profile information on Sep 2013. Unfortunately for me, the details also came too late and well after my trial. Can you appeal to the Superior Court of Justice or the Supreme Court? It depends if the decision ...

Re: 90 in 70 zone reduced to 80-fight or not

It's all public information, you can request for it through city hall. What department should I ask? Is it free? Do they get you a copy immediately? Do you need to fill out a Freedom of Information Request Form? Thank you iFly55! Even if you call 311, they'll re-direct you to the appropriate depart...

Re: 90 in 70 zone reduced to 80-fight or not

Its been awhile since the court saga is over and i feel i should post the outcome. The trial ended with conviction as expected. On the appeal everything was in my favor up to a point at the very end when the judge saw i have cost request. So the judge was kind of confused and decided to write the de...

Re: Court of Appeal for Ontario help needed

It's difficult to weigh in on your options/chances of appeal without seeing the full judgement. The sections you've quoted don't really give much sense out of context, nor do they clarify if the Court feels that particular evidence is relevant to the outcome. It is too long to list the full judgeme...

Court of Appeal for Ontario help needed

Today i had my Appeal in Court of Justice and my appeal was rejected in a very strange maner. All the pleadings were in my favour and the judge agreed with almost all i had. The prosecution barely had anything to say. I submited my cost recovery request and the judge accepted it saying he need more ...

Re: 90 in 70 zone reduced to 80-fight or not

By the way it turns out that even the 900m requirements is not met. From sign to the next sign is 1200m , so one sign is missing in between. The traffic workers measured the distance. So at the end they installed the missing sign :) All i am saying here is documented in the works department. But so ...

Re: Disclosure -printout of digital file-acceptable ???

once the notes are entered and sent from the cruiser there is no way to modify them by the officer. All we can do is read and print them. OPS It makes sense . I am just curious are the notes typed in the same time with the ticket , because the ticket and the notes have the same time stamp? The offi...

Evidence act
Sec. 34.1(4)

They didn't use it as evidence so no use of it.

Thanks! That is exactly what happened.

Re: Links to AI-013

On my trial the officer said he never read the manual and he doesn't know what is in it except the testing page :)
The Judge accepted it as normal.

Lidar testing and operation

On my trial the officer said he never read the operating manual and he doesn't know about the clear line of view when choosing the road side location. He is shooting behind a big tree and the light beem has to go thru the branches. He said that he tested the device before the shift but never record ...

Re: 90 in 70 zone reduced to 80-fight or not

You are absolutely right the OHTA is the only legal document. I was pointing to the manual because of the visualization provided there . It is easier to understand the OHTA and this is the book according to which the signs are posted. That is the guideline for the traffic department where to install...
