Re: Payment made 4 days late, but able to pay and shows as active. Am I ok?

If you have a receipt for payment, you'll be fine. No one's going to refund your payment and put you in default.

Re: Hand-held device ticket - Requested Disclosure for 8 months but haven't received. Court this week

Go to court with several copies of your e-mails, logs of your phone calls, etc. When you arrive, the Prosecutor will ask you what you want to do. Tell him or her that you requested disclosure eight months ago and have followed up diligently. The Prosecutor may have copies of your e-mails to verify; ...

Re: Hand held device, plain clothes officer "observed me with phone resting on right knee". Pulled over by other officer

You have the right to tell your story and to cross-examine both officers. Handheld tickets are difficult to beat, but if Officer 1 can't describe your cellphone and you can get him to acknowledge that you may have been trying to close a Tic Tac box, you could have a chance.

Re: 61km/hr over driving on the 401, construction zone (no workers). Already had my early resolution meeting.

Perhaps you could post the disclosure here (just make sure you black out any personal information). One or more people could advise you as to whether you may be able to do better.

Re: effects of sleep disorder on DL and INS, went to a sleep clinic

Pardon the pun, but Mrs. Bobajob should rest easily. If she's managing her apnea with a CPAP machine (preferably) or other form of treatment/therapy as advised by her doctor, she is still eligible for a licence. She would have to have severe apnea to be denied a licence. I have sleep apnea and use a...

Re: Any advice on hand held device while in gridlock traffic?

You can still receive the set fine of $615 if you go through the disclosure process and decide to plead guilty in court or at any time before that. It's only if you plead not guilty, have a trial and are subsequently convicted that the set fine is no longer available.

Re: Disobey sign - Highway traffic act Sect 182 (2)

No. The sign was correct at the time of the alleged offence. The fact that the by-law was changed subsequently does not affect the validity of the charge. You may have difficulty having the HTA charge changed to TMC, as municipal by-laws are relied upon to set the prohibited days/hours that are refe...

Topic: Radar testing after officers duty. Does this need to be on the officers statement on disclosure?
replies: 6
views: 416

Radar( Laser) only needs to be tested before shift and at end of shift not after each stop. The text of the decision says before and after enforcement. That's typically interpreted to mean the beginning and end of the officer's shift. I've also seen cases where an officer who has worked a long shif...

Re: Bogus stunt charge!! 100 in a 50. Officer lied and I can prove it!

First, let's recognize that police officers are human and make mistakes. It may be better to proceed with the attitude and mindset that the officer may have been mistaken. If you go into the process "hot" and accusing the officer of lying, no prosecutor is going to want to give you the time of day. ...

Re: Radar testing after officers duty. Does this need to be on the officers statement on disclosure?

The relevant case for this question is R. v. Schlesinger. That case confirmed that an officer must test the radar both before and after and enforcement stop and that an officer must have a notation of the time he or she tested the radar. You can read the text of the decision here: https://www.canlii...

Re: Stunt Driving ticket without a clean record exceeded 50km/hr

Both offences are considered major offences for insurance purposes. Either can cause your insurance premiums to double. If you're convicted of both, you'll find it extremely difficult to find insurance (if you're very lucky, a company in what's called the facility market or sector; these companies i...

Re: An obscure parking signal in Great Toronto Area

I'm sure the intention of the sign is as Bend has suggested, but I can see how it could easily be confusing. It would probably be better if the text were:

I also think the Highway 7 HOV lane would fall under either a York Region or City of Markham by-law.

I believe volunteer response services are permitted to use intermittent green lights. I can look up the reference if needed.
