Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

Hello all, So i'm going to trial in a couple of days! I was hoping i could file an 11b but its only been about 7-8 months and i don't think it will qualify. oh well.... however, it is more than 6 months so they can not change the charge to a part III offence! I will recount my story for the court: I...

Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

Part III is not a more "severe" charge, its simply a different way of charging you. The prosecutor can't give you a ticket with a set fine like a police officer, but they can use a part III summons to require you to come to court to face charges. It's definitely a more severe offence. A part I can ...

Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

right, discovery, got it, thanks!! yeah i don't know how fault determination will work here... since technically i was rear ended, he should be 100% at fault. I also spoke to an RCMP who teaches police foundations at my wife's college, he said that they can not increase my charge, they can amend it ...

Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

thanks for the advice! yes i think i am just confusing myself with too much info here ... i shall keep it simple. the only reason i brought up the point about the appeal is a read it as a defense on a ticket website, basically to prevent them from amend the charge to part III, i would just not respo...

Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

Plan of action: ask for early resolution - where outcome should be dropped charges, do not indicate that there is an error in the section of the HTA on the ticket if no resolution reached where charges are dropped, go to trial and ask for discovery send representative to court on trial date - see if...

Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

Also, if i ask for early resolution and explain to them that i'm not from here, and the charge isn't applicable... and we don't come to agreeable terms. can i go to trial after that? My state doesn't have any reciprocity for points, so its just a matter of the fine for me ... b/c either way the insu...

Re: Made a left, got rear ended ...

Scenario: I was in a private parking lot (quiznos) and was making a left turn onto the main road - no intersection. It was a 2 way road, 2 lanes each, no center lane. There was a car approaching in the far...
