Re: 2 tickets, one of them has a mistake...

You might want to look into your cities parking by-laws before you do anything with the tickets or while you are deciding whether to fight them. Most cities restrict parking on the street to a maximum of 12 hours regardless of any signs permitting parking. You may be lucky that the car wasn't towed ...

Re: 11B Victory, How To Remove Record From Drivers Abstract?

I'm not quite sure why they would use the term "police privilege', when in fact the police have nothing to do with adding or removing anything from a driving abstract. That's all done by the MTO. I'd start with calling them.

Re: I have a few questions.

You can always ask for leniency but it's entirely up to the JP. They are more likely to give you extra time to pay any fines that are judged against you. IMO the full-time student excuse won't be given much sympathy from the JP. The likely scenario will be that you are given 3 months to pay and at t...

Re: I have a few questions.

2) A plate portion of a permit can be registered to a different party than the vehicle portion.
3) And the minimum fine is usually $5,000

Re: wrong information on the NOTICE OF TRIAL

Your notice of trial is not the official charging document and the incorrect information will not assist you in your defence.
As far as i'm aware, you are under no obligation to correct them.

Re: Ticket - Driving Using Handheld device

The JP doesn't have access to your Drivers Licence information except for what's actually on the ticket. If you didn't show up there would be no way for the JP to know the address is different. Referring to the fact that you believe the officer to be "incompetent" based on a wrong address probably w...

Re: Ticket - Driving Using Handheld device

The fact that your address is wrong is not a fatal flaw on the ticket and it would not be quashed. How would the Justice of the Peace know that your address is wrong on the ticket anyway? Things like leaving the date and time of the ticket off, the officer not signing the ticket, leaving off the set...

I'd actually know what you were arrested for and if they actually laid any charges?

Re: Failed to stop at a stop sign? (Maybe)

As for the placement of the stop sign, that's not actually where you are supposed to stop. Depending on the road design, you either stop at the marked stop line or, if none, then immediately before entering the nearest crosswalk or, if none, then immediately before entering the intersection. For dis...

Re: Will I get a ticket? - small wind deflectors

I'll give you my standard answer: "It depends" 1) Do you get caught? 2) Is it actually raining out? 2) Every Officer is an individual and can use their own discretion. Look at it like rolling dice, sometimes you roll boxcars and sometimes snake eyes. How you react during the vehicle stop may influen...
