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...

While I agree with bend's interpretation, as a computer programmer I can see how there are challenges with interpreting the logic based purely on reading the sign ;-)

There may be regulations which inform us on how to read the sign, of course.

My interpretation is that anything to the rear would be permissible by the Act, no?
To the rear shouldn't be a problem... your vehicle probably came from the factory with red flashing lights on the rear ;-)

Please don’t tell me that the front of the vehicle means ONLY the bumper, the windshield could also be considered the front!
OK, I won't tell you.

But I will tell you that your argument won't float in court.

Be repentant and explain your situation. If you get lucky you can get a reduction of the fine and time to pay. My wife got both for an unbeatable red-light-camera ticket, when in a similar circumstance.

The onus is on the driver who is required to yield. Drivers who have the right of way should not have to alter their driving to accommodate those who do not. While I don't disagree with that, it kind of makes it impossible for somebody whose driveway is very near an intersection to actually comply,...
