Regarding the emergency service bill, this is normal in some municipalities and you can pass it on to the insurance company or pay it yourself. The bill is for attending the incident in general, not specific to you, but since you were the "at fault" party you get the bill. Regarding disclosure, you ...

Re: RED LIGHT PROCEED BEFORE GREEN TICKET $325..

Of course you lose nothing except your time by fighting it, but be aware that nothing you have said so far would seem to indicate that you will win. You say you stopped, the officer says you didn't. In the absence of other witnesses, who will be believed? If you decide to fight it, consult the vario...

Re: HTA vs. Bill 31 - Yielding to pedestrians crossover/crosswalks

The best and brightest have spoken, and FWIW I agree with them. As I read your post, you have been convicted, right? So, you need to start an appeal. That's a bit more complicated process, as I understand it, and there are specific time limits, etc. Depending on your comfort level you might consider...

Re: Ford Explorer - Commercial Plate & Sticker location

My knowledge on this dates back to the 1990's, so things may have changed. Unless somebody else confirms, take it with a grain of salt. 1) In theory any vehicle can be registered as commercial or passenger. Once registered in a class, that class can never be changed. 2) The correct location for the ...

Re: No fine entered

The best and brightest may correct me, but I believe that the officer has 6 days to file the ticket...

Wait a few days and then call the appropriate court house to inquire on the status of the ticket. The officer may notice the issue and not file it.

Re: Accidentally failed to stop for a school bus

What's the difference paying the ticket on without asking for early resolution or pay after meeting the prosecutor on early resolution? Have I not accepted the charge against me on both cases? No difference. At the early resolution meeting you might get the prosecutor to agree to a reduced fine.......

Re: Do I need to yield on a narrow street?

This is an interesting one, for me anyhow.

Assuming that there is physically room for both vehicles, what's the difference vs. a roadway which was the narrower dimension to start with?

Suspect we're dealing with common law / case law here as opposed to the written law.

Re: Validation Sticker

My knowledge relates more to moving infractions (former driving instructor), but that section of the HTA is as follows: Permit to be carried (5) Subject to subsection (6), every driver of a motor vehicle on a highway shall carry, (a) the permit for it or a true copy thereof; and (b) where the motor ...

Re: Disobey Sign HTA 182(2) No Right Turn 7-9am

The plot thickens! One comment to the OP: I believe that your insurance would only consider this "minor" so unless you have other tickets on your record the impact on your premium could be negligible. Check with your provider. You would need to weigh the value of your time to fight it vs. the cost o...

Re: Validation Sticker

I can't put my hands on the exact reference right now, but unless things have changed the regulations say that the plate sticker "must" be affixed to the plate, and the expiry sticker "may" be attached to the ownership. This means (again, unless things have changed) that there is no reason for this ...
