If you missed your court date, you would have been convicted. You'll have to ask that the trial be reopened. I believe you have something like 15 days to do so. This could open a whole can of worms with the MTO. You should probably keep tabs on your license and its status. There's a possibility that...

An officer has 6 months to lay a charge. Sure, pulling over the vehicle is more common, but I don't see why it wouldn't be enough for a possible conviction if the officer could identify the individual behind the wheel. There are scenarios where pulling over a vehicle isn't realistic for whatever rea...

I'm sure there is legislation that states a red light camera must have a warning sign prior to it, as every red light camera has one, and I've seen a news article reference said legislation, however they were not specific enough. Have checked the HTA, found nothing on the subject, didn't expect to ...

They have 7 days to file the ticket.

They have 6 months from the date of offense to charge you. If they want, they can just rewrite another ticket, give it to you, and file that.

However, the chances of them further pursuing a 15km over ticket is usually slim. In Northern Ontario though, who knows.

These are the new rules they made to coincide with the legalization of cannabis. They are basically the laws for alcohol, except for cannabis. You should be transporting your weed exactly like alcohol because the rules are pretty identical. Transporting cannabis 12 (1) No person shall drive or have ...

Agreed. If you have an advance green and witnesses can verify that, then I wouldn't expect anything to come from this. If you have a green and are waiting in the intersection to make a left, the light turns red, you proceed to complete your turn, and someone tries to squeeze through the signals, the...

It's hard to tell what happened because your explanation isn't clear. If you're waiting to make a left, turn, and someone in the through lane hits you, then you're likely to be seen as the one at fault almost every single time. It's called turn not in safety. The onus is on the driver in your positi...

There's obviously a lot more to this story so it's hard to give you any specific answers. Stunt driving isn't just speeding. There's a ton of activities that are considered a stunt. They are the following: Definition, “stunt” 3. For the purposes of section 172 of the Act, “stunt” includes any activi...

Get used to the idea that your license will be suspended. Both are suspendable offenses for your driving class. I don't believe there is any leeway for breaking one of the conditions on your license. Either that person was a fully licensed driver or not, and it's not something you can really make an...

Officer isn't required to show you any readings roadside. Your deal is pretty standard. In term of deals, It's either drop the stunt and charge you according to the speed or they drop the speed down to 49. The higher the speed, the less likely you are to receive much of anything. If that's what they...

That's something you have to decide. Everyone has their own situation. Not everyone has the luxury of missing work, finding child care, having transportation, or whatever the reason may be. You certainly have nothing to lose. Worst case scenario, you can always plead guilty when you show up. There's...

Decatur put it best. Two way radios are defined. Make sure you fall into that definition. “two-way radio” means a wireless communication device, consisting of a main receiver unit and a separate hand-held microphone, that is operated by a push-to-talk function on a set frequency and that allows for ...

Do you need representation for this type of situation? It depends. Normally, I'd probably say no. However, your livelihood probably relies on a clean driving abstract. It might help to have someone who knows the ins and outs of a courtroom who is not going to be fumbling around. In that case, is the...
