And so far as putting a note on a computer record...those records only last 72hrs... So if an officer in Toronto runs a plate, all that I'll see if I run it here is if it's been run in the past 72 hrs. I see no problem with an officer running plates, not with 265,000 suspended drivers in Ontario, th...

Personal phone call? There's no right to a personal phone call...never heard of that before... And despite what some people think, police know better than to believe people, I've been lied to thousands of times in my career... I can think of 25 times I've had a flat out denial by somebody backed up ...

Scary Situation

A few days back, on patrol, I stopped a car going the other way for his dark window tint. I couldn't see in and we all know this is rather common. My spider sense was tingling and there was radio traffic, so rather than book off, I immediately went to driver's window. The driver was hunched over the...

Agreed, you can go up to the maximum to pass slow traffic, not 30 over to pass the guy doing the limit.

Forced to speed?

That's hilarious...I wouldn't try that in court, unless you have Sandra Bullock with you and photos of the bus and the bomb strapped underneath it!

Sorry man, but forced to speed made me burst out loud...

The evidence is indisputable from the photos, but there are extenuating circumstances such as weather conditions (heavy rain). Not so...red lights are absolute liability offences. If it is heavy rain, snow etc...you are REQUIRED to adjust your driving speed so that you can stop. So many people blam...

You are correct. Your insurance might take a dim view of an unlicensed person operating your vehicle regardless of the location however.

I've had lots of success with this...giving a side view speed estimate is a little harder to be accurate to within 5 km/h let's say, but there's a huge difference between 0 and 30 km/h. Was he watching your wheels under the other vehicle's? Was there noticeable acceleration / deceleration viewed by ...

Might be better to prepare a series of drawings so that you can provide the court and the prosecution copies, court would likely want a copy filed as evidence.

If the front car tried to stop, you should have been able too.

Seems like you are in a pickle.

Clean record = go to court and ask prosecutor for a DISOBEY LANE LIGHT.
