You don't have to do anything.

You were not pulled over at the scene. If they want to charge the owner of the vehicle, they'll show up at the address listed. If that happens, pay it and move on. It's the equivalent of a parking ticket. It doesn't go against your license.

- Yes, they can amend the charge.

- Demerit points in the grand scheme are rather meaningless.

- Your insurance will treat 15km and 25km the exact same.

It's up to the officers discretion. However, your daughter is on the equivalent of driving probation. Distracted Driving is treated as a condition/restriction for novice drivers, much like a zero blood and alcohol level. It's an automatic 30 day suspension for a first offense. This is fairly new as ...

Getting multiple readings is common. Some officers may include all readings, most just write the highest. There's nothing abnormal about what happened.

i don't see any of the boxes ticket to see if points will be deducted. An officer cannot deduct points. They can only reduce your charge. Basically i know the cop was trying to meet his quota There is no such thing. because he stopped me a block way from where i made a right turn. It's not exactly ...

You don't say when you made your original request. Usually, 2 months is what your average person will probably wait for a disclosure request to be fulfilled. That being said, it doesn't always work that way. If you don't already have a copy of the notes, you'll likely receive them on your trial day....

You're hitting all the check marks for excuses that aren't defenses. "I was speeding but not that fast", "Someone else was speeding too"... Speeding is called an absolute liability offense. You were either speeding or you weren't. There is no in between. That means you were doing 80, not 90, 95, 100...

The end game is to either get it dismissed or reduced substantially. The defense I'll use is; I have a speed warning on my car set at 110MK/h and cruise control was set at 110KM/h. The officer probably targeted me, but at that instant the laser hit another car. Speeding is an absolute liability off...

I'm not sure if you're grasping how serious a careless driving charge is. In terms of insurance, it's the worst of the worst. It's the equivalent of driving drunk, street racing, driving with no insurance, etc. There's a good chance you wont be able to get regular insurance if you're convicted. You ...

Re: Speeding 145KM/h - 45KM over in a 100KM zone - York Region

What is your end game? Your average "ticket fighter" is only going to benefit you so much for a basic speeding ticket. They aren't going to put in the time and effort defending this in some trial. At some point it's not worth it for both parties. They'll likely just go to the courthouse and get a de...

Re: Speeding 145KM/h

so I'm wondering is it possible that he hit the wrong car? The spread on a laser device (if that's how he calculated your speed) over large amounts of distances is extremely minimal. The officer will also have more information in his notes which aren't usually limited to just pointing a device. You...

Re: Wrong charge for careless driving

You're assuming it's the wrong charge. If you plan on arguing it's the wrong charge, then be prepared to argue it. Just because there's another charge that applies doesn't make you not guilty of careless driving. Careless driving is a vague charge that can apply to practically anything and it's not ...
