Trial Process?

Unread post by Brenden105 on

I have received a ticket, I was not the driver but it was my car (how is that fair?).
I understand I can sometimes get the ticket reduced by half, is this true?
I am wondering the process involved, I assume I request a trial, but do I ask to talk to the prosecutor before that or after I ask for a trial? And do I make an appointment or do I just show up early for my trial?
When I talk to him or her do I ask for a plea bargain or wait for them to offer it?
Any other advice around how this process works would be appreciated.

Red light tickets go to the owner of the car. Next time dont lend your keys out.

Option 3 for trial. You can most likely get a plea for reduced fine. There are no points.

Hi, I got a red light camera offence notice. The intersection is Berrigan Dr./Wessex Dr.and Greenbank Road in Ottawa. The offence date is October 3rd, 2011, and the date of deemed service is October 21, 2011. However, I did not receive this notice till December 1, 2011, which means by the time i got the ticket, the original 15 days had passed. I also didn't get the 2nd part of the notice, the part that shows option 3. I don't remember going through the light but since there's pictures, I guess i did do it.

It says I approached the red at 0.002 seconds, and that I approached through the intersection when the light had been for 001.0 seconds. My speed limit was 68km.
Based on all this information, do i even have a valid defense, or should I just plead guilty and pay the fine?

Thanks.
