Re: Can I make a uturn on a red light if it is safe to do so?

If you read the section listed it says you can turn to the left from a one way street into a one way street. The street your on is not one way. Even if there’s a median. And turning to the left, is a 90 degree turn, not a 180 degree. The charge would be either Red light- proceed before green or Red ...

Re: Can I make a uturn on a red light if it is safe to do so?

I’m just wondering how you could have a red light that’s not at an intersection. Perhaps give us the location to look at via google maps.

Re: Could you please advise how to file for an appeal from Ottawa?

The appeal court for a provincial office wouldn’t be in Toronto for a trial heard in Ottawa. Go back to the court where the trial took place and ask for a Notice of Appeal. You only have 30 days from the trial decision to file an appeal. Also read the document that you’ve linked, it will give you an...

Re: HTA section 85.1 CVOR Truck and Trailer tickets

Forget about the term CVOR. Section 85(1) has nothing to do with it. You’ve been charged with: Operate vehicle-fail to display device. Annual inspections are required when alone or in combination your truck and trailer have a total gross weight, registered gross weight or manufacturers gross vehicle...

Re: Does an Ontario license suspended in quebec for unpaid fines affect driving in Ontario

Not only just pulled over, but charged with driving under suspension. Not quite sure what the fine is in Quebec. Ontario fine is not less than $1000 and a mandatory further 6 month suspension..

Re: How long is too long to wait for a trial? *Hand held device*

The only reason you need to go is if you are objecting to the motion or want some input as to the new date. There may be dates put forward that don’t fit with your scheduled appointments.
If you want any input you need to go.

Re: How long is too long to wait for a trial? *Hand held device*

The thing about disclosure is that you have to actively seek it out once you’ve requested it. You can’t just request it and not pick it up, or just not query where it is. And if you keep “kicking this thing down the road” the delay to trial is against you and not the prosecution.

Re: Disclosure - Front of ticket not provided, only rear?

It doesn’t matter. Generally court dates are assigned for when the officer is working to save $$. On an off day a typical appearance at court will be time and a half overtime with a minimum amount of time generally around 4 hours. Court appearances for officers are subpoenas. They hVe to show up or ...

Re: Disclosure - Front of ticket not provided, only rear?

It’s very common for officers to attend court on days off. I’ll second what greasespot posted. Miss court and you’re likely to get written up for a first offence. Charged under the PSA after that and loss of time certainly.

Re: Disclosure - Front of ticket not provided, only rear?

A no show is a very rare thing now. Police officers get paid to be in court, either on a regular day shift or even on overtime on a day off. So bless you know that this officer has tickets for a flight that morning I would t be betting on a no show. From what you’ve posted so far I don’t see any gro...

First point would be, if you decide to fight this 10 over ticket, at trial the prosecutor will have the ticket amended up to the original speed. Second point about the colour being wrong on you permit, that’s actually an offence in itself. Get it changed. Three, A photocopy of both sides of a permit...

Also, in an Ontario Court of Appeal decision, an officer can amend a ticket after service in some cases.
Even if there’s a slight difference between the original and your copy it’s likely immaterial.

You’re exempt from wearing the torso restraint if the motor vehicle was manufactured prior to the 1st day of January 1974.
