I got a ticket for disobeying a sign at an interchange in Vaughan (Interchange Way and Jane St.) that supposedly only for Buses to make a left turn at.

The police officer was waiting for motorist to make that turn and noticed that he assumed his position again of hiding for the next victim.

The street is 3 lanes wide and the left turn lane is seperate from the rest of the lanes giving the impression that it is a normal left lane towards a family private mall for IKEA. This was Sunday at 11 AM where there was no traffic except for the couple of buses that were in front of me.

I am planning to go to court and plead not guilty as I do not think it was fair for a trap like that in an intersection that the sign was not visible although the officer assured me that there were 8 sign there !!!

If that is going to be your defense then you'll lose for sure, if you actually go to trial.

File for disclose and see if you can come up with a viable defense, if not attend and take a deal.

"Fairness" has nothing to do with it. Unless the signs were completely obscured, and you can prove it, the odds of success are nonexistent.
