Re: Something feels fishy with my stunt driving charge

There seems to be a serious flaw in the process that the officer has followed. Under section 172(5) it states that the if the officer believes on rpg that a person has driven in contravention of subsection 1, the officer shall request that the person surrender their licence and SHALL detain the moto...

Re: calibration certificate/history?

In order for you to proceed wth an O’Connor application, you’re likely to spend several days in court, even before you see a trial if that’s where you end up.

Re: Charge does not match ticket

Just so you’re aware. A 2017 OCA case R v Davis, allows the officer to modify the ticket after service in most cases.

Re: 149 Km/h on 401

You can’t score if you don’t shoot the puck! If you have time to go to the meeting and don’t have any convictions, they may reduce it further if you’re apologetic and don’t go in with a chip on your shoulder. If they don’t offer you anything further , you can simply offer to pay it. If y...

Re: 149 Km/h on 401

On the first page of the notes, last line, arrow pointing down usually means you were slowing 150 down to 149. Technically stunt driving at 150. The officer decided to charge you at 149. If you take this to trial and the officer testifies that you were driving 150, the prosecutor will probably amend...

Disclosure is the responsibility of the prosecutor. The police wont give you the manual.

That book is not used in training officers on the use of radar in Ontario. Most officers have probably never even heard of it. Depending on its publication date, it may even be very outdated.

Re: Introducing evidence to court

As per this case: https://www.canlii.org/en/on/onsc/doc/2 ... sc436.html

There is no longer a requirement to provide any portion of the manual.

Re: Emergency Court Of Appeal help excessive speed

You’re not likely to get a lot of assistance with case law from Alberta. We are much more familiar with Ontario case law here.
For example, in Ontario the manual does not have to be produced nor an operator certificate.

Re: Summons for HTA 82 (9)

Walk into Service Ontario with the plate portion and advise them that the vehicle has been sold. If you have use for the plates and are not turning them in, they will list them as unattached.

Re: Ontario HTA on Front License Plate

The only way around it is if you’re willing to accept a $110 ticket for it every time you’re pulled over. After about the second or third time, be prepared for a Summons.

Re: Possible Logic Win?

You’re actually lucky that you received any portion of the manual. Recent case law doesn’t require disclosure of any parts of speed measuring device manuals.

Re: Possible Logic Win?

I’d certainly put someone’s knowledge, skills and abilities above a piece of paper any day of the week. A certificate is only worth the paper it’s printed on.
