Re: Parking for Dummies in Toronto

FYI you can't park within 9 meters of an intersection or crosswalk in Toronto. It was not even a case the Judge just do not care, they think that I am insulting them by going into court with parking ticket plus I did not want to plea guilty...Can you argue with the Judge? He is smart and you simply...

Parking for Dummies in Toronto

I would like to share my story here. I have got a parking ticket ($40) about 11 month ago and went to court with it. I never was going to cort with parking tickets and this time it was a principal matter for me as there were no parking sign. My car was parked just 3 meters from the stop sign at the ...

Toronto speed limit for cyclists

I know that there is no demerit points for cyclists, but my question is how do I know what is my bike speed? How the police officer can prove that I was speeding? What is the ticket value for this offence? http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q155/sonice2006/bikespeedlimit.jpg Does it mean that I shou...

Unfortunately you can not sue the other driver directly for damages. Read section 263 subs (1) and (5) of the Insurance Act. I guess you can, read my case- http://www.ontariohighwaytrafficact.com/topic497.html Let's say you had an accident, not your fault, but the insurance company did not cover it...

Going back to this topic, it looks the police do whatever they want, if they want they lay the charge and if they want they do not! " No charges in fatal bike accident Meanwhile, Toronto Police are still investigating. But you can see the problem. First of all you are dealing with a 15-year-old and ...

I was disappointed with the small claim court judge decision yesterday. Judge ruled out - 25% driver's fault and 75% my son's fault. The explanation was simple- car driver was negligent, as he did not see any pedestrian (bike) on a sidewalk and my son was negligent as he did a very unusual maneuver ...

Any word from the crown or court regarding your appeal? Just giving you an update, the downtown court quashed "fail to report" charge on March 5 and now we are at the same point as we were originally- having an original charge. Therefore it looks like courts do whatever they want even s. 85 of the ...

As for the by-law, your son was allowed to ride on the sidewalk as TO has made sidwalks distinct from highways. This should give me the opportunity to request my $500 from this traffic tickets company who misrepresented me. Ido not know if it would be worth...I mean to do it via small claim court.....

No, i have not heard anything... I sent to crown today the registered mail. Everything you posted changes everything, in my view. You son wasn't riding o the sidewalk, he was riding on the road. When the car turned he steered to the siewalk, but he was riding on the road. When he left the scene, the...

You don't have to convince me, you'll have to convince a judge. I agree by 100% But your son's friend claims he was on the road passing the car on the right hand side. Yes, my son's friend was in front of him passing that car from the left. How does he know if it was a car between him and my son? D...

Are you saying your son wa on the sidewalk at least one driveway before reaching the drviers driveway where he was hit? Why a cyclist would turn to the sidewalk if he/she would 100% sure that the car will turn next moment and he could collide? He saw a car ahead of him, which started decelerating w...
