Re: Possible Logic Win?

Youre actually lucky that you received any portion of the manual. Recent case law doesnt require disclosure of any parts of speed measuring device manuals.

Re: Inadequate Speed Limit Signage / Barrie

You're misreading it. There is no need to post signs in a built up area unless the maximum speed is something other than the statutory maximum of 50 km/h. Likewise there is no need to post 80 km/h in the more rural areas. You might also want to check the Bylaw for Barrie. All of their speed variatio...

Re: Inadequate Speed Limit Signage / Barrie

If the 50 km/h maximum was "within a local municipality or within a built-up area" as per section 128(1)(a) there is no requirement to post any signs. There is only a requirement under section 2(1) of that regulation to post signs "where a maximum rate of speed other than that prescribed by subsecti...

A dismissal wont even be on the table. They may provide you with disclosure in two days and reschedule the trial.

Re: Right turn on red light camera - complete stop

About disclosure. Its your disclosure. Once you request it, its your responsibility to get it and to check to see if its ready. Theres no requirement for them to bend over backwards to make sure you get it.

Re: Received ticket for doing 105 in 100 with incorrect fine

A recent Ontario Court of Appeal decision allows officers to amend a Certificate of Offence after the Offence Notice has been served. Your Offence Notice may not have a fatal flaw. The only way to find out would be to file an appeal with the court.

Re: No Insurance Card Ticket

With an offence date of June, its not likely that they will withdraw a charge. More likely to get disclosure that day and have it put off to another date. You also indicate thats you received no reply to your disclosure request. Its actually your responsibility to contact them to see if disclosure i...

Re: got pulled over on a bridge bus lane in Ottawa

Trials in absentia are used for offences where a Summons is issued. The officer is then required to present their evidence to establish a conviction.

Re: got pulled over on a bridge bus lane in Ottawa

If the defendant does not show up at trial, under the POA, a section 9.1 is conducted and without a hearing or the officer being on the stand a conviction is registered if the certificate of offence is regular on its face.
The offcer is not required to be there for this process.
