I recently got a speeding ticket (40 in a 30 zone, dropped from 70 in a 30, but no notes about that on the ticket or anything) on Pearson Airport grounds, so the ticket is for "traffic on the landside of airports regulations, section 5". However, there is no fine amount on the ticket.
Does that mean I can kill the ticket? If I plead guilty on this, does it stay on my record like normal speeding tickets do? The officer said otherwise, but I'm not sure if she was lying.
Section 5 states:
5. No person shall operate a vehicle at a rate of speed greater than
(a) the speed specified by the airport operator on a sign; or
(b) if no speed is specified by the airport operator, 50 km/h.
21. The following persons are authorized as enforcement officers for the purposes of these Regulations:
(a) members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police;
(b) members of the police force of the province or the municipality in which the airport is located;
(c) by-law enforcement officers of the municipality in which the airport is located; and
(d) an airport operator and its agents, contractors and employees assigned to duties related to the enforcement of these Regulations.
24. If a payment is made in accordance with section 23 by or on behalf of a person who is alleged to have contravened a provision of these Regulations, the payment shall be considered to be in full satisfaction of any penalty that may be imposed on summary conviction of that person for the alleged contravention.
Not sure what that exactly means. But still, there was no fine on the ticket. How am I supposed to pay the ticket when they don't tell me how much it's for?
Any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks a lot!
(2) Any person who is alleged to have contravened section 5 or 6, subsection 8(3) or section 14 may register a plea of guilty to the alleged offence by making payment in accordance with the terms and conditions set out on a ticket or other notification document in the amount equal to the lesser of
(a) the fine prescribed under the highway traffic laws of the province or the by-laws of the municipality in which the offence was committed, as amended from time to time, and

I'm not really sure that this tells us anything, does it?

Also, what does this mean for having the conviction on my record for insurance companies to have a look at? The officer told me that it wouldn't apply because it wasn't a violation of the HTA, but is she telling the truth?
Also, wouldn't not having the fine be in violation of section 16(d) here? http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts ... 4.html#h-8
