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...

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.

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...

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...
