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. My kids both ride the bus and I'd say about once a week I see a driver who doesn't stop when meeting the bus, or has to nail t...

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! Hopefully it all works out OK in the end...

To clarify: you had a "protected" or "advanced" green signal, he was traveling in the opposite direction and had a red signal?

While I applaud your initiative I also doubt you have much chance of success.

Where I'd rather see a lawyer invest some personal time is on the topic of administrative monetary penalties and/or roadside license suspensions, where there is a presumption of guilt.

Were you actually ticketed, and if so under what Section of the HTA, and where did this occur? If you look on the City of Toronto website, for example, you can see this: Both forms of this regulation come with a necessary exemption that stipulates the prohibition does not apply to any vehicle actual...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but truly you don't have much hope. There is information about the process for self-representing defendants on the Ontario Ministry of Justice website, I don't have a link handy though. Be aware that the court has no authority to modify the demerit points.You may...

Anyone else not seeing responses? Why must subject lines be long?

For the past couple days I can no longer see responses, the site just shows me the original post in any thread. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Also, why is there a minimum length for Subject lines?

Just to clarify, you are saying that you have never even been pulled over (in your life?) but your license has been suspended? If that is truly the case, it sounds like a clerical error to me. These things do happen. Others here will know the process better than I do, but I would suspect there must ...

B) Parking is probihited between 8:30am and 4:30pm while Monday to Friday in July and August are exempted. I don't think anybody's claiming that the answer is B. In fact, I don't think any of your options reflect the true (intended) meaning as bent said. F) Parking is prohibited (between 8:30 am an...
