Be advised that unfortunately the courts can't do anything about the 30-day suspension, much like they can't do anything about points. As you say, you've already got a pretty good deal. The only possible way it might get any sweeter is if you throw yourself at the mercy of the prosecutor. In some ju...

"Because Windsor", I guess ;-) As is pointed out, the problem isn't really with the yield sign, it's with poor driving. If it were me, I would complain to my councilor. At the very least they should paint guide lines for that left turning traffic to try and nudge them into that correct lane. Better ...

If one obeys the yield sign at some of these lights, the right-turning traffic will only ever be able to proceed as right-on-red after the light changes. I'm not sure I understand your concern. When facing the green, the presence of the yield sign (while still having legal meaning) is pretty much i...

The bottom line is: you are facing a yield sign. The rest is irrelevant.

Doesn't it mean then you are paid up until Nov 2020?
By "it" do you mean the sticker? The sticker would seem to indicate that I'm paid-up until Nov 2020, but I know that I'm not: I paid $120 which is for 1 year, right? So, from Nov. 2018 to Nov. 2019.

No takers?

OK, then, the legal question: in the case of a disagreement between the physical sticker and the MTO's records, which is taken to be correct?

MTO gave me the wrong sticker - place your bets!

So I have an vehicle which I don't drive over the winter. My birthday is in November. So, to save some cash flow before Christmas, in November 2018 I chose not to buy a sticker, knowing full well that when spring came I would still need to pay the $120 for the period November 2018 - November 2019. F...

Unfortunately (or fortunately, due to all the left-lane hogging vigilante bandits) passing on the right is not illegal in Ontario.

Personally, I would love to see the government act on this particular issue. Too busy with buck-a-beer I guess ;-)

Don't freak out. You are 100% in the clear.

Amber lights have no regulatory meaning, except in the case of tow trucks stopped on the side of the road providing service. (Slow down and move over.))

First of all, be aware that your license and insurance aren't affected by a red-light camera ticket. You a charged as the owner, not as a driver.

I don't know about an actual allowable minimum fine, but I can tell you that my wife got hers cut almost in half by pleading the same cause.

What bend said. But I just wanted to thank the OP for driving with a brain and being self-reflective / aware about these things. This skills seems all to lacking these days.

I held off answering as I certainly don't have much to help you with but I do feel badly for you. If it were me, I would wonder if somebody found out about your situation and is trying to scam you. I suspect that a visit to the court clerk might help to understand what exactly is going on. Call Serv...

There has been no police report yet and the other party hasn’t filed a claim and it’s been over 2 weeks now, but my insurance company said they’re deeming me at fault until the police report comes in because I made a left hand turn... this is b.s That sucks!
