Re: Interfere with Traffic Highway Traffic Act 170

It sounds like he charged you under subsection (12), interfering with traffic. If you can show that you had pulled sufficiently off the road that you weren't interfering, you could have a case. I have no idea why he'd have asked your daughter for her name and address. It was also interesting that he...

Re: Traffic ticket for not properly securing a seat belt

You said both your wife and your daughter had their seatbelts under their arms. A seatbelt must be worn over the arm and shoulder. You can still request a trial and see the disclosure, but keep in mind you've admitted they were both wearing them incorrectly.

Re: Appealing a conviction for a traffic offence where the ticket was not signed.

In theory, checking a phone is no different from eating a donut or drinking a coffee or from a water bottle. They're all distracting. The display in my car shows me who's calling, so I don't have to peek at my phone, but it's often tempting to do so. In practice, the difference is that the specific ...

Re: Touched mounted phone to decline call and received $490 ticket

The person with whom you meet at early resolution may be in a good mood and may accept your story that you simply pushed one button on a mounted phone. Do your homework and bring at least subsection 14 (1) of the Regulation with you. Tell the prosecutor that that's exactly what you did and no more. ...

Re: Touched mounted phone to decline call and received $490 ticket

You very well could have an argument pursuant to subsection 14 (1) of O. Reg. 366/09 (that's the Regulation dealing with hand-held device exemptions; s. 14 (1) refers to what you said in terms of being able to push a button if the device is securely mounted). That said, the officer/Prosecutor could ...

Re: Is my case really a case of "mis use parking permit"??

You're right. Because it's a parking ticket, you won't get disclosure. But you can explain the situation and see what the reviewer says. If you're not happy, you can request a second review.

Re: Is my case really a case of "mis use parking permit"??

I assume by now you've requested a trial. As soon as you have the trial date, request disclosure.

Re: Is my case really a case of "mis use parking permit"??

If you haven't yet requested your trial, bring a letter from your father explaining the situation, including the fact that the space in which you parked was the closest one available. The person at the ticket office may be able to cancel the ticket.

Re: Speeding 145KM/h - 45KM over in a 100KM zone - York Region

Aside from everything else that's been discussed, you keep referring to York Region. You were in the City of Toronto. "York" here refers to the former City of York, which is now part of Toronto. The courthouse is in the York Civic Centre, an administrative building for the City of Toronto, formerly ...

Re: Charged twice for same offence?

For the red light camera offence, you would have been charged as the owner of the car, not as the driver. I don't know if that complicates matters. Call the court office and ask. If there's no way to resolve it, request a trial and show the prosecutor the ticket you received and proof you paid it. T...

Re: Car Totaled - what do I do with licence plates?

If you can recover them, you can return them to a Service Ontario location for a refund of the remaining term less a service fee (used to be five bucks, could be more now).

Re: 29km/h over in a 70 zone.

Today I was apparently clocked going 99km/h in a 70 zone. The officer reduced my ticket to 15km/h over. I have a few questions; 1) While the officer stated to me that I was going 29km/h over, is it possible that this number is even higher? Yes it is, but he probably gave you the actual number. 2) I...

Re: can i use 11b

11(b) only works when the delay is caused by the courts, the justice system, etc. Once he requested an adjournment, the delay became attributed to him. He'd probably be out of luck. Take out his one-month delay and he's really toeing the line on 18 months.

Re: Suggestions for first ticket

Photocopies of registration and insurance are not sufficient. The only exception is if you have an insurance binder for a new car. A binder is a temporary certificate that is issued pending the issuance of the usual certificate. A faxed or e-mailed and printed copy of a binder will do. You should ha...
