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...

Re: turning left into plaza entrance

Yes, you're at fault. A driver who is making a left turn is required to ensure it is safe to do so. Blinding sunlight is not a defence. The fact that you tried to avoid the collision may have reduced the damage, but it won't otherwise help you.

Re: Drive motor vehicle no license

A car rental agency in Iceland is not likely to know the difference between a G and an M (or, in your case, M2). Regardless, class G refers to cars, so that wouldn't have been an issue. An M2 is valid for a minimum of 22 months and a maximum of five years. If you don't pass the road test to upgrade ...

Re: Speeding ticket for going 60km in 50km zone. Worried about insurance increase :(

So you're saying there will be an opportunity to just go and pay the ticket as if I never asked for a trial? Yes. You can plead guilty right up until the time the clerk asks you how you plead. Won't the prosecutor/judge question that and raise/add fines for their trouble? No. Because you've avoided...

Re: Speeding ticket for going 60km in 50km zone. Worried about insurance increase :(

10 km/h over the limit is a minor offence. Some insurance companies will not increase premiums for one ticket in a certain number of years. Others will increase them a little. You could always ask your insurer or your broker if you want to know for sure. If you received a ticket at only 10 clicks ov...

Re: Half way stopped for school bus :(

Obviously. The law states ONLY if the lights are on and clearly marked. If not why would you even consider stopping, it would not make sense. If I see a stopped school bus in or close to a school zone, I'll usually slow down in case the driver doesn't check for traffic before putting the lights on....

Re: Driving No License Please Help!!!

You should have received a renewal notice in the mail. Sadly, not receiving it is not a valid defence, but receiving it serves as a helpful reminder. I think a lot of us would forget about renewing our licences otherwise. If you can find a compassionate prosecutor, maybe he or she would consider red...
