Re: Roadblock question

This didn't happen to be in Burlington, did it? I saw a very similar situation there, I think it was on Wednesday. No, KW area. Even on this forum i found a couple of simillar situations. I expect the officer to help rather than punish every time there's no real harm, intent or danger. The goal was...

Re: Roadblock question

If he's only blocking the left lane, a driver could make the argument that it appeared the officer was only trying to prevent left turns, not all traffic. There's also the wording of subsection 134(3), where it says "intentional disobedience." There appears to be nothing intentional in your actions...

Any suggestions would be appretiated.
How did this play out in the end for you?

Re: Roadblock question

Found the control devices in question here: https://www.canlii.org/en/on/laws/regu/ ... g-599.html
I think the officer didn't properly close the road. I bet that's why i didn't get the ticket.

Roadblock question

I came to a red light at an intersection where a police cruiser was blocking the left lane just past the intersection by parking across it. The right lane was still open. 200-300 meteres down the road was what appeared to be an accident. For some reason i figured I could still go through. So once th...

I also heard that security guards shouldnt touch you if the alarm on the exit went off as they may be charged with assault, wrongful imprisonment or even kidnapping. Thats why I never stop when that happens to me. Although I saw a security guy at LCBO handcuff a guy with booze in his pockets and I s...

I wonder if they could also use something like impeding the work of an officer or obstruction of justice :)

I know some states like MD have a law that prohibits flashing headlights.

That's a lot of tickets and a dumb situation altogether. You could argue the grounds on which you were stopped in the first place. "The police are stopping motorists on an entirely arbitrary basis to question them and determine if they have been drinking. The police have no grounds to reasonably sus...

Child restraint system / booster seat

My son is almost 3 years old now. I was moving to a new place a few weeks ago, and I took the car seat out of the car as i was moving some things in it. Once I was done, I went to pick up my son and forgot to put the seat back in. Luckily no one saw my son in the back seat and reported me. I saw the...

So i just show up and claim that I am acting on behalf of my friend?
Make sure it's a legit parking ticket and NOT from one of those shakedown artist!
Yes it is a real ticket, the building manager comes out ones in a while and writes them out to whoever didn't sign in

Representation form

A friend of mine got a ticket for parking at visitor parking in front of the building where I live (apparently you have to write down your license plates each time you do that). I wanted to go to court for him to dissmiss the ticket. Is there a sample form that he has to sign so I could represent him?

I went today into court, pleaded guilty with explanation. The judge was the nicest person and she suspended the fine meaning I get my conviction but don't have to pay any fine. So 2 dollars for the parking in front of the court house and 110 dollars in my pocket saved. It is really interesting to si...

The only one I could find is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQdXmjD7Xks that's a us version as I understand different from the one I've seen but same idea. So from what I understand the officer takes an estimate then flips the radar on to see the reading. If thte radar is in instant on would i...

For a long time in Europe all the radars have a video screen, no need to prove much, the video recording will show exactly who the laser hit. you are mentioning 2 different types of units there....which is it? I've seen the one they have in the car, you get pulled over, they ask you into the police...

I would only issue an offence notice if I believe there are grounds for a successful conviction of the charge. I have never issued an offence without grounds, hence never to an innocent person. If there were a mechanism to check if you are right or not there would be no trials. The longer people do...
