Re: police not in the court!

Yes its possible they can do that. But remember you can tell prosecutor you want to plead not guilty and then when the trial starts they will say one of two things... (1) we are not ready to proceed (officer is not there) and are withdrawing the charge, OR (2) we are ready to proceed (means officer...

police not in the court!

I can't find my cop. But the prosecutor said cop will show up if they call him. Is that true?

Court start at 9:30. If I plea not guilty, my case will be handled very late, and cop might show up at 2pm, is that ture?

I did plea guilty, I'm afraid to bet.

Re: Video evidence in court

You should advise the Prosecutor and the Provincial Offences office that you will have video evidence that you want to present and that you require XYZ to play it. Then when you show up, you can expect that they will most likely NOT have anything for you to play your video on. They may want to keep...

Re: Is all speeding equal?

Hi, I received a speeding ticket* about an hour ago, but only now realized the unusual situation and don't know if the below is usable in court. The road I was driving on was a 40 km/h hour 4-lane road (speeding ticket shows 57), and I was on the right lane, the police officer was hiding behind a b...

How did a ticket officer enter a private street? Did you buy the street explicit? Some people with hugh mansion bought the surrounding streets from the government.

Re: Is a ticket likely coming my way

I am having a bit of a hard time recalling exactly how much I passed the line by, however my worst-case estimate puts the rear tire around the white line (either slightly before or slightly past it). My car was not sticking out far enough to impede any traffic in the intersection, and I think pedes...

Re: Is a ticket likely coming my way

So full story, I am stopped at a green light, waiting for the car in front of me to complete a left turn (I was going straight through). The car in front of me makes his turn and I start to move. I quickly realized the light was changing from amber to red, and I decided to stop. However my vehicle ...

So if both witnesses don't show up, I plead not guilty. Correct?


I will call witnesses (kind old ladies) the night before the trial to see if they attend.

What if cop shows up but witnesses don't

From the disclosure I have got, the prosecutor summons the cop and 2 witnesses to the trial.

i'm sure cop will show up because he gets paid.

But what if both witnesses don't show up? Do I win the case almost 100%? Is the email witnesses wrote to the cop served as evidence in court?

Re: G2 driver when ticket issued, full G now and going to co

When it comes to the Ministry, I am almost 100% positive they'll will punish you as a G2 driver because that's what you were at the time. That means you fall under Novice Driver Escalating Sanctions and you're subject to a 30 day suspension for 30km+ over the limit, even though you now hold a G. Wh...
