You might. However, it might be a good idea to look at other possible venues of defence. Send in your ticket with option 3 checked off, check "Officer present" as well, then ask for disclosure, make sure that you request a copy of the by-law applicable. It is always better to be prepared more than you really need to.

So, I have chosen option 3 for my ticket, trial option.
Now they said wait six months to get your court date by mail.
I was reading on ticketcombat.com that i should send 2 letters.
one for a speedy trial and one for disclosure.
does anybody know when is the good time to send these letters?
should i wait for the six months to get my court date or send them out asap?

If it takes 6 months just to get a scheduled court date, you might win on 11B alone... (Unreasonable delay in lieu of court)

on ticket combat it says so to send in a letter to the prosecutor saying that you are stressed not knowing the outcome of the trial and you are requesting a sppedy trial to get trial over with and relieve stress.

should i send it in for further proof of unreasonable delay in lieu of court?

If you have not included that in your submission with "I wish to fight this ticket", then don't bother.

your said, dont bother? why not?
I mean if i was told that it was going to take 6 months after i submitted the i wish to fight this ticket, it would make sense for me to send it after i received the news that it would take 6 months.

I dont think that anyone who is fighting their first ticket would ever expect it to take 6 months and take that letter with them in advance for the submisiion of their request to fight the ticket.

Main thing im asking is, should i send the letter now or should i wait to send until i get my court date so i send it with the request for disclosure letter together?

It took 13 months for my last ticket to goto trial, but I didn't do the paperwork, so I joined this website and now I'm cured, 12 easy steps.....whoops :oops: , wrong group.

The right to a speedy trial is just that, a right. If you are waiting more then 6 months just for a trial date then your 11b arguement will probably suffice. I'm not a legal guru but I would put money on it....
