Re: Obtaining G licence before prosecution of G2 violation

Greetings, Admin, am understanding your initial reply correctly? If a driver is a G2 holder, gets a ticket, that by itself or in combination with previous convictions is greater than 4 points - so long as they obtain their G license prior to the conviction of the most recent charge, they will not be...

Re: Fisrt Accident,Careless Driving due to sliding-Please He

Hello, I sincerely hope you are feeling less stress now, after a few days. I too have been charged with careless driving, and know how hard it is to conceive how it can be just when you feel you were being careful, and met with unfortunate circumstances. It would seem that there are officers acting ...

Re: Careless driving Charge. No other car involved

Thank you for posting the follow up, this is very helpful to know. I am very glad it was a good outcome for you. I wouldn't feel bad about not asking that it be thrown out, there is a good chance that they would have adjourned to allow you time to review disclosure; you paid the $85 and it is done, ...

Witnesses box not checked - is other driver not a witness?

Hello, Received a ticket for careless following a collision. On the ticket Y/O is indicated for collision involved, but is not indicated for witnesses. Is the driver who's car I hit, not a witness? The prosecutor's case will be difficult to prove, and impossible without her I would think. I do not y...

Re: Charged with careless - procedure questions

Thank you Stanton. I also appreciate your mentioning the amount of case law. With that I started digging and came up with http://www.canlii.org. Is this the best source for looking at judgements? In reading through many that involve Careless Driving I noticed very few (in fact only found one so far ...

Re: Failure to remain...at the parking lot

I am thinking paying for the damage out of pocket is not likely to lead to the charge being dropped, and if you are going to defend yourself on the basis of there being no damage, or an accident not happening paying for repairs will not help your defence (only a personal opinion) Here is a case wher...

Re: Daughter got charged for leaving the scene in. How to fi

I can understand your concern, the charge laid is one that I believe is considered serious by insurance providers and carries 7 demerits if convicted. I cannot speak to successful defenses to her situation, and hope someone here can. If she is a G2 driver she is also looking at a suspension under th...

Re: Graduated Licensing and Convictions

Thank you. With the novice driver escalating sanctions program, will the G driver's license be suspended for 30 days then? The way the G2 would have been. Also am I understanding it properly that with the program, after the suspension is served, there are no demerits attached to the license? Would t...

Graduated Licensing and Convictions

Hello, The feedback received thus far has been helpful and I am wondering about when demerits are applied, and how with the graduated licensing system. Given that it can be months between a charge being laid and a conviction, or a plea deal being agreed upon, are demerits applied only after convicti...

Re: Charged with careless - procedure questions

The ticket is a form 4…if that matters Do I understand this correctly, if I pick Option 2 - Early Resolution or 3 - Trial, I will likely be offered a plea deal? I thought this was possible at Early Resolution, but once I select trial it was all or nothing. I understand I can do Early Res...
