Admin asked me to comment on this thread (sorry I'm a little late with it). First Attendance (FA) is not an alternative to choosing one of the options on your ticket. You must always request a trial. THEN you can negotiate a settlement at FA or before your trial. FA is not offered in every jurisdict...

Ticket Quashed

Got the ruling today. The ticket was quashed. As this was a first level OCJ ruling, it isn't binding so you don't necessarily need the case law to make the same argument. I have to check with the defendant tonight to see if she's OK with me plastering her name all over the internet. Anyone can make ...

I took a different take on Morton's report of the case (Good job finding it Bel!). He noted that there must be some form of mental element (mens rea) to warrant imprisonment. We've seen previous cases where the justices ruled 172 was a strict liability charge open to a due diligence defence. This ca...

I'll second that. As long as you pay one of the amounts, that should be OK. However, under s.111 of the POA you can avoid paying the fine by entering into a recognizance (you have to get a justice to agree to it which is a separate court appearance).

3) Highlighting that I have not received a manual that states the proper use of radar gun. don't think you will ever see that, it is a copyright document. To my understanding each crown has the manual for viewing purposes only and you can attend a look it over. You cannot deny access to or a copy o...

It must be a regional thing. I've seen the MTO letters in the mail and I know of people who have been stopped on the road but I have never heard of an officer actually coming to your door to find you.

I'll disagree with all of the above. A speed limit sign is just that: here's the speed limit on this part of the street. The only exception is the speed reduced when lights flashing sign which sometimes is placed around schools. Community safety zones are in effect during certain hours, days and mon...

For a licence suspension for non-payment of a fine??? I've never heard of an officer looking you up to serve you personally. Normally it's a letter in the mail from MTO!

As you are making reference to them, you can submit them. Case law is not evidence so you don't give them a letter (e.g. defence exhibit A), you just hand them over. If you want to be "fancy", the rule for civil/criminal procedures outline creating binders in which you put all your material under we...

torontoeh, I'm entering this thread for the "discussion" and I AM NOT suggesting you take a different approach to what everyone else has recommended. They are very knowledgeable and their recommendation is the easiest path to resolving a complex issue. Now the discussion. Pre-172 street racing and p...

You can use either lane. But beware that if you see a green arrow indication, then separate rules apply for turning on a red. See this discussion . HTA 141 Right turn at intersection (2) Where a driver or operator of a vehicle intends to turn to the right into an intersecting highway, he or she shal...

Still waiting. A decision was due in August BUT the justice forgot his notes on his kitchen table. (I can't make this stuff up!!!) So the matter is adjourned till end of September. But I've already noticed that they are starting to use the new forms so the loophole window is closing even if no one h...

I'm not saying cyclists are saints. Basically anyone with balance can ride a "vehicle" on the roads with the little training they got from their early childhood. And I have NEVER seen a bicycle in compliance with the Act at night. I've had more than my fair share of close calls, especially making a ...

Here's my big city take on it. OK the cyclist should not have gone on the sidewalk, that was wrong. But the other part which frustrated you is actually the way it's supposed to be! You have to share the road and yes he's supposed to slide up beside you. Rather than thinking, ugh I've got to pass thi...
