Re: Electronic Proof of Insurance Cards - accepted by LEOs?

Question regarding "format approved by the superintendent". My Insurance slip expired a couple months ago, and I did not receive the updated slips, so I called my insurance company and they emailed me a valid slip, which I printed out. Would this be sufficient enough, or does this technically not co...

Re: class g1 driver unaccompanied by a qualified driver

There's been times where I've thought the cop wasn't the one who pulled me over. Maybe he got a haircut, or glasses or something. But Badge Numbers never lie. I personally would consider this a win and move on. In your original post, you never mentioned the Fail to Surrender Driver's License Ticket....

Re: License suspended after lost ticket, ways to delay?

@JSherk, I think the OP is getting confused with the Ministry Interview and the Novice Driver Escalating Sanctions. With the Ministry interview, you will have to go in and plea why your license shouldn't be suspended (6-9 points for G1/G2, M1/M2, 9-14 for G/M), where as with the Novice Driver Escala...

Re: License suspended after lost ticket, ways to delay?

Unfortunatly, there is no way to delay it. What was the charge for? You said speeding, but did not say if it was Stunt Driving reduced to 49 over, or you just flat out lost at trial for a 30-49 over. Either way, the only way for it not to get the suspension is to win at trial, which you were unable ...

Re: Failure to stop at red light turning right

From My Understanding, You can only request an adjournment before the trial starts, since that's what your adjourning. I don't believe you can question the officer pre-trial.

Re: Speeding ticket - court in 10 days

So the ticket was reduced (Code R), which means that if you take it to trial, the ticket would be amended to the original speed recorded (whatever it was he/she told you). Be aware that 1-49 over hold the same bearing as insurance is concerned, the only difference is 1) points (if you have a lot on ...

Re: Careless Charge - No Accident

So I never took down the video, Unsure of why it was removed. Anyways, due to the severity of the charge, I think I will just seek a plea deal out of it. I was never willing to fight this one on my own (was going to hire a lawyer), just wanted opinions on whether I should accept a plea bargain (some...

It actually isn't as bad as it sounds. I went in 15 mins prior to my meeting, had a seat. The MTO representative called me in, I sat down. It proceeded with numerous questions (How Many KM do I drive a year, Occupation, Do I need Glasses). After that, she asked how many offences I have outstanding w...

Ministry Interview

So I received a letter today saying that I need to meet with the Ministry to discuss my driving record. The standard 9 points interview letter. Currently, I have 4 points on my record, but I hit 9 in September (5 points expired that end of that month, and I got convicted of a 49 over which put me at...

Anyways, am I at a lost cause here? I know theres probably no chance of me getting another trial. Maybe a reduced fine ...

Re: Careless Driving - Witness lives 700km away?

To my knowledge, in order to secure a conviction, the witness and the officer need to testify at the trial. So if the witness or officer (or both) don't show up, charges will be dropped. The next bit of my post is my pure thinking, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. In my opinion, no person...
