Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

That's all I'm looking for. Yes I plugged in my phone while stopped at a stop light. Yes, under the law I'm guilty, but I'm hoping to get it reduced as I can't afford $500 :(

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

Hi All,
I got my date for court. Can anyone tell me how to get in touch with the prosecutor if their name isn't on this form? And they didn't even sign it.

Thanks!!
Stephanie

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

So worst case scenario is I have to pay the full fine and waste my time going to court.... best case scenario, I get a reduced fine (or some miracle happens and get it thrown out)....

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

I had my phone in my hand, and plugged it in... I was at a stop light (a long one) and literally plugged it in and shook the wire until it buzzed to show me it was charging. I know I did it... I'm not saying I didn't... but I wasn't aware that I wasn't allowed to even "touch" my phone while at a sto...

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

It was actually flat on my cup holder. My cup holders are filled with gum packs for my kids, and so I lay it flat on there while driving. So I could potentially just shove the plug into it without holding it....

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

Thank you all for your advice.
Should I check the box to request that the officer appear in court? Or should I only request that after I request his evidence? Or by checking this box does it mean I automatically get his evidence?

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

Just out of curiosity, what about peeling a banana at a stop light? That would have been more distracting and taken me more time than plugging my cell phone in.... :(

Re: Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

It was Section 78.1(1)
And offence was written as: Drive - Hand-Held Communication Device

Are the attached sufficient?

Thanks for your help!!

Plugging My Cell Phone in at Stop Light

I was stopped at a stop light (it was a long stop light at big intersection) and remembered my battery on my cell was running low (I'm a mother of 3 young kids and having cell battery is important), so I plugged it in, noticed the plug was fraying, fiddled with it for about 5 seconds to confirm it w...

Re: Redlight Camera Ottawa - Form 5 legal?

There is an option 2, to not do a trial but rather to Plead Guilty with submissions as to penalty. I think you just show up at their office during given times to ask for a reduction? Is that how that works?

Redlight Camera Ottawa - Form 5 legal?

Hi All, I just received an Offence Notice on Form 5 and have read a few older threads on here that suggest this might not be legal, and they have to use another form such as Form 6. Can anyone give me some current updated info on this? I did it, but would like a reduction or not to pay it at all if ...
