Re: Ticket for driving a friend's car with expired sticker

Insurance could care less that a validation was expired, doesn't make you a higher risk. And you have a zero percent chance of winning in court, you could have checked it prior to driving it. Having said that, your previous driving record might work in your favour and prosecutor might have some merc...

Re: Radar Detection and Line of Sight

The manual are third party record, police don't own them and aren't required to disclose them.

You can contact the manufacturer but they won't help.

I've had several people try try this tactic unsuccessfully.

Re: Speeding on Highway 69 in Sudbury - OPP officer

Don't forget if it was REDUCED you risk having the full speed reinstated when attending trial. That's more money and likely more demerit points. Usually when you get a reduced roadside, best advice is to just go pay it unless you can prove you weren't speeding...my 2 cents...

Re: Never,never, NEVER plead guilty to Careless!!!!!!!

As an intelligent police officer I'll explain the following: EVERY COLLISION INVOLVES A DEGREE OF CARELESSNESS by one or both drivers. I have never laid a careless to 'get more money' out of a driver, my salary is fixed at a certain level and I live very comfortably on it. Careless is the easiest ch...

It's in the general penalties section of the provincial offences act, standard is $85 plus cost and surcharge totalling $110, but extenuating circumstances (previous convictions etc) can raise that to $600 in court, plus cost and surcharge. I had a fella here who just refused to put on cause he didn...

Re: Failure to Provide Insurance Card

Unfortunately you are required to surrender a proper (not expired) insurance card. Granted you could plead not guilty to both, and attend court to try to negotiate one away. However, even if you find by the time he or she has returned with the offence notice written, you have no real defence. A vali...

Re: Amber Light Fail To Stop

Check off option 2 and go make your own deal! $350 to negotiate is a lot of money. If they balk at Disobey Lane Light (they shouldn't) the Amber Light is much better than a Red Light Ticket... As for your defence of 'I'm not used to that car' I find that foolish...I've driven hundreds of different v...

Re: Original certificate of offence was not filed?

Sometimes there's a delay in receiving the ticket at the Fines Office, typically, the ticket is quashed at that point, the police service has the right to reserve you, but that SELDOM if ever happens unless this is a serious charge (MVC etc)...looks like you dodged one, keep all your paperwork, if y...

Re: Motorcycle fork rake law

Further the longer the rake, the less downforce on your front tire...i.e. if the officer grabs your front brake to lock, and can still push the bike forward, improper means of braking, off comes the plate, it can be declared unfit and towed away, don't mess around with chopper style bikes, the canno...
