One other consideration

I've looked at many of the posts and - for the most part - they are correct. However there has not been a lot of mention of an additional ground of appeal. It appears that you made some mistakes in your trial. Although you are not entitled to a 'do over' the JP had a duty to make sure that you did i...

Now you need someone who can assist you in making it persuasively to the Court. If you need some help le...

Should just make a new section in the HTA....Strike a motor vehicle from the rear. That would apply to stopped traffic and/or traffic slowly moving, could even be applied to hitting a parked vehicle on the shoulder. The one problem I see with this is that in "not at fault rear enders" I.e. where so...

Careless Driving

Bobkat, It's not too late to deal with this. First of all, HTA charges are not Criminal Charges however, unlike Criminal Charges, they remain on your driving record forever - you cannot be pardoned and you cannot get a "discharge" to escape conviction. Depending on the circumstances of the accident,...

lol good point there! :) But what are the chances of that actually happening? I can tell you from my recent experience that 17 of the last 20 Careless cases I've done resulted in a complete dismissal. One resulted in a full conviction (and had excellent grounds of appeal) of the remaining 2, one wa...

Because 0 points and no conviction is better than 4 points and a conviction.

Left Turn when light turns, before letting oncoming traffic

With all the new talk about the racing provisions (s. 172 of the Highway Traffic Act defining speeding 50 or more over as a "stunt") many people haven't looked at some of the other less talked about definitions of stunts. In particular, one definition that many people may not know is this scenario: ...

Reduction from Careless Driving: Good Deal or Bad Deal?

Quite frequently, I've seen Careless Driving charges in rear end collisions reduced to "Follow Too Close". But is this really a good deal? Sure you avoid the major conviction with 6 points, but you still get a conviction for 4 points. And in many cases, the only witness who could describe the driver...

Also, some cities, like Ottawa, for example have by-laws to cover this kind of offence that would not result in demerit points i.e. "drive in a manner as to obstruct traffic".

It's Really About Time That a Forum Like This Exists

I really want to commend the creators of this forum. I have been driving for over 10 years; I learned to drive in Montreal. People always say how Quebec drivers are nuts, but really, while I lived there, I very rarely saw or read about, or knew about any major accidents. I came to Ontario a little o...
