As Decatur said. You can go to court where the trial took place and they'll give you a simple form to fill out. If I remember correctly, it's just a sheet asking for your general information and a section asking your reasoning for filing an appeal. There might also be something about transcripts and...

I also just looked over it, I don't see anything that would say a construction zone would fall under a major offense. but anything involving schools or school buses would bump up a normal offense to a major offense. School zones, playground zones, school crossing signs, school bus passing/stopping, ...

You are charged with not providing proof of insurance on demand when requested. Even if you get a hold of your current insurance slip after providing the incorrect one, the officer is not obligated to go back and forth with you. It would be considered your duty to provide it the first time, which yo...

That is not a Highway Traffic Act case. It's a negligence case between two families and the insurance company involving multiple factors. Along with an obstructed view, the occupants were drunk and the car was travelling 100km in a 50km zone. ... Even with his knowledge of the intersection he had no...

You can take anything to trial. If you're asking whether or not you're at fault, you are. What you've described is not a defense. This is a common situation for accidents. Since you're turning, the onus is on you to do so safely. It's not up to the "impatient" driver with the right of way to adjust ...

These are not necessarily Highway Traffic Act issues. While on any Ontario highway, an officer can stop you and ask for license, insurance, and permit any time they want. A school parking lot in practically every case will be considered private property. What that means is the Highway Traffic Act do...

If this is something you'd like to take to trial, you can do so by selecting the appropriate option on the back and attending the courthouse. They'll give you a simple single sheet form to fill out (Notice of Intention to Appear). You can even download it online , fill it out, and submit it then and...

You are responsible for the vehicles ahead of you. You will be at fault almost every single time. Even those instances that you wouldn't be, they are almost impossible to prove. However, this isn't one of those instances. You keep talking about scanning the left lanes of traffic, not the signal. I'm...

First, I've read that I could effectively win the case on a technicality if by the date of the trial I have not received disclosure, is this true? No, because more than likely, you'll receive your disclosure package the day of your trial. They'll probably give you a new date and you'll have to go t...

You're at fault for the accident. You had the stop, the other driver didn't. You pulled in front of them. I get it. Almost no one who has an accident wants to admit fault. However, your defense isn't a defense. Just because you've come to the conclusion that there is a speeding problem on that stree...

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...
