Coming out of the gas station, I saw the police cruiser sitting there with its lights flashing, but I didn't see the new "no left turn" signs across the busy road!

There were no signs on the near side of the road at the time of the offense. I feel that the signage was inadequate. It's a busy road with lots of trucks going by.

A "no left turn" sign has since been installed on the near side of the road. I have "before" and "after" pictures.

I'd appreciate any tips for my court date this week! Thanks.

Did you get disclosure? Apply to have the case adjourned if you did not know about the disclosure.

I did get disclosure, and it only yielded a copy of the officer's notes.

It did not include a copy of the by-law, as requested.

The offense date was about 7 months ago, so there would still be lots of time to reschedule another court date if I asked for an adjournment, so I don't plan to do so. Time to just get it over with, I figure!

The forms the government are using are invalid. You haven't been charged. There is no proceeding before the court. The certificate the cop filed with the court is a nullity.

For more info read my last 20 posts or so. You find them by clicking on my name and in my bio it will say read all greatest canadian posts.

Well, it ends up that the prosecution also didn't have a copy of the by-law in court, so the charges were withdrawn.

I am a free man! :o
