Erin Mills pkwy in mississauga...they want 325 bucks from me..and i said fk it ..im fighting......
Here is the 411 on it...70 km/h zone..i entered the intersection doing 57 km/h when the red light was on for 0.6 seconds..and it took me 1.6 seconds to cross the intersection. Now here is the kicker to the story .. it is my car..me in it..yep i did it..but this is the day when my car broke down. I tried to stop when some belts and pulleys and other sht got ripped out of my engine and the car while making horrible noises wasnt responding the way it was supposed to ( breaking was shot ..driving etc.. ) suffice to say i was 57 km on 70 km/h zone unable to stop thus i crossed on red. After i came to stop i got my car towed to garage..then fixed...while after i got the notice of offence. I don't have the towing info since i had no use for it when i got towed ( and i had no idea i went thru red ) but i have the bill AND times of BUYING the parts from a supplier for my car and price for it location etc...invoice basically and then bill from garage for few 100s bucks for fixing my car. same date just few hours later...
Now my question is...I couldn't stop due mechanical failure of my car thus im not guilty of running the red light since the car wouldn't stop....Is it defense? I mean how should i handle it?....I don't want to go and play dumb..i just want to show them in court that LOOK if i WAS running red light i would got FASTER then 70 not frikin SLOWER by 13 km/h ...and then have 500 bucks worth of invoices for repairs on my car....i mean..if an engine falls off of a plane and it crashes..you can't frikin blame the pilot for the crash...same here...i wanted to stop but i couldn't..
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
the sign saying red light camera ahead is behind a tree...not visable from the street...just as an observation..
and on both pictures my break lights are visable..
Personally I think your best bet would be to try and work out a plea deal with the Crown to a reduced fine.
