Is this the right code for my offence? I was turning left at a prohibited time. I always set my clock ahead 10 mins so I thought the time to turn was okay-NOT. Time on ticket reads 0847am and no left turns before 9am. Is this a decent defence?

Personally I think the appropriate charge would be disobey sign. It sounds like the turn itself was proper, just that you disobeyed a sign prohibiting such actions during a certain hour.

I think arguing your clock was off wouldn't be the greatest defence, especially if you intentionally set it 10 minutes ahead.

If you turned into the corresponding lane (ie turned from the left-most lane in to the left-most lane) or whatever, then you have been improperly charged. The correct charge would have been Disobey Sign, as Stanton indicates. Section 141 (6) only refers to how to properly make the turning motion.

I think you have a very good chance of getting the charge withdrawn if you go to Court since it's incorrect.

Once you get the trial date, make a disclosure request and ask specifically for the officer's notes - typed if not legible. That's about all you should ask for in this case - none of this garbage about "witness will-say statements" and "statements made by the defendant" and "names, occupation and criminal records of people providing such information," etc. If the officer's notes specifically refer to the sign, and nothing about which lane you turned in to (or out of), simply go to trial. If it is after 6 months from the date of the offence (which it probably will be), the Prosecutor should either be forced to withdraw the charge, or you should win during the trial. Keep us posted and we'll try to help you out.
