Re: Hand-held ticket when plugging in at red light, officer rushed to deal with an accident during citation.

There is no harm in booking a court date and requesting disclosure and there is no risk of the fine going up unless you actually go through with your trial. It never hurts to review the disclosure for mistakes and to talk to the prosecution about a possible break on your fine. If nothing else bookin...

Re: If you almost hit pedestrian...can you get a ticket if they report you to police?

If this happened in a major urban area I think you will most likely never hear about it again. Most police forces in large cities have a backlog of major crimes to deal with and don't have the time to chase down a minor traffic violation, which at the end of the day is all this is. Also, even if the...

They have 6 months from the date of the infraction to serve you with a summons to court, so they are still within the legal time limit.

Re: Suspected mileage tampering after used car purchase

I would contact the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council. They regulate car sales in Ontario and enforce consumer protection legislation when it involves the sale of cars.

Here is a link to their website https://www.omvic.on.ca/portal/

Re: Careless in a parking lot

I agree with the others. For a careless driving charge they would have to prove you were driving. Assuming you didn't give this guy your name, they will have no way to do that. Like Bend said, if the guy reported your licence plate to the police you might get a warning letter in the mail but that is...

Re: Can someone answer please

Yes, all tickets issued under the Highway Traffic Act appear on your driving record. This ticket is considered minor so you may see a small insurance increase or none at all depending on your insurance company.

Re: Park Vehicle in Area of Park Not Designated for Parking - Code no 250

One thing to keep in mind is that a lot of cities, including Toronto, have switched over to an administrative monetary penalty system for parking tickets. This means you can no longer challenge a parking ticket in Provincial Offences Court. Instead you must use an arbitration system set up by the ci...

Re: Need advice I'm from Moncton new Brunswick

A ticket could still theoretically be issued, but the truck driver would have to come to court and testify against you if you changed the ticket. Then it would come down to which person the Justice of the Peace hearing the case found more credible. In reality I think it is fairly unlikely that the p...

Re: BAC >0 G2 and more.

I would file for a court date with the officer present and when you get your court date in the mail request disclosure of the officer's notes so you can see what evidence the prosecution has against you. There is always a chance that the officer missed some technicality you can use to beat the charg...

Re: Handheld device ticket

Go with option 3 it gives you the most flexibility and keeps all your options open. That way you can negotiate with the prosecutor, or go to trial and try to beat the ticket, or if you change your mind and just want to pay you can do that too right up until your trial actually starts.

Re: Handheld device ticket

If all you're looking to do is get the ticket reduced then I wouldn't bother hiring anyone as you can plea bargain with the prosecutor yourself. If I were in your position I would plead not guilty and request a trial with the officer present. Then when your notice of trial arrives in the mail I woul...

Re: Fire Route Ticket - Exemption/Route Not Designated

I think challenging the legality of the fire route is probably the best way to go as well. Since parking tickets aren't heard in traffic court anymore, your friend will have to make their case in writing to a city appointed screening officer. When writing the letter your friend should explain why th...

Re: disobey no left turn sign

I agree with argyll, there is no point in booking an early resolution meeting at this point. Just show up a few minutes early on your court date and meet with the prosecutor before court starts. As he said, you won't be the only one, lots of people will be there looking to cut last minute deals.
