Re: Improper Use of HOV Lane on Interprovincial Bridge

The 3+ HOV lane that exists on the bridge is municipal and is covered by an Ottawa by-law. The provisions of the HTA do not apply. Had you been charged under the NCCTPR, you'd have been guilty. The officer charged you with the wrong offence. If you're in court within six months of the alleged offen...

Failure to Provide Insurance Card

I am writing this on behalf of a friend because I strongly believe I can help him fight this but wanted the community's input first: 1. He was stopped for not wearing a seatbelt in Cornwall by the Cornwall Police. 2. So, he provided his licence, registration, and proof of insurance. 3. Then, the off...

Re: Improper Use of HOV Lane on Interprovincial Bridge

I still think what I suggested will work. Signs may have been posted, but I'm guessing from what you've said that (a) there were no "HOV lane ahead" type signs on the Quebec side and (b) the signage did not conform to the Regulation (I believe someone who's in a similar situation said the lane is 3...

Re: Improper Use of HOV Lane on Interprovincial Bridge

You should get the officer to testify as to what he saw. Then ask him or her to describe the signage and road markings. Bring four copies of Regulation 620/05 (the HOV Regulation made under the HTA): one for the officer, one for the JP, one for the prosecutor and one for you to use. Ask the officer...

I assume I will be going to court before you about this matter, so I can certainly report bac...

Re: Improper Use of HOV Lane on Interprovincial Bridge

That is the same situation as me. From what I understand on that thread, I should meet with the prosecutor on my court date and ask them to drop the charge because it was the incorrect one. To clarify my situation, it was indeed the Ottawa Police and it was 154.1 (3) of the Highway Traffic Act. Wher...

Re: Caught with a Suspended Driver's Licence for Unpaid Fine

UPDATE I called multiple lawyers. Only one of them is claiming to fight everything because paying my fine is an admission of guilt. The other lawyers are suggesting to pay everything in full to re-instate my licence and fight the suspension to at least bring it down to a lesser fine (without real h...
