An hour ago, I got pulled over and car got impounded for 7 days and so did my license, I was going 185KM/H ( did not notice) I was in a rush to my friend to pick her up, the cop clocked me at 185 with a lazer... anyways right now what it looks like I have 1000$ to pay for the impound. After I get my car what will I do?

I get my car in 7 days, I also get my license in 7 days.

Im also a G2 driver
And its my first ticket
What do I need to know?

What should I do?

Thank you.

$2,000 to $10,000 fine on top of your impound fees, 6 demerit points, up to 6 months jail, up to 2 year suspension for a first conviction.

You'll automatically be suspended an additional 30 days if convicted (Novice Sanction).

Because of the 6 demerit points, you may serve an additional suspension. You may have to attend an interview to discuss your driving record.

There is no way you are getting out of this unless the officer made some sort of fatal error on the ticket itself. There is not justification for going 185 in a 100 zone you could have killed someone.

Even the best lawyer will not be able to get you off the only thing you can hope for is a lower suspension and a lower fine. Since you are still a G2 driver the suspension is not going to matter because you will not be able to afford the insurance for years to come.

I was clocked doing 184 km/h on the same stretch of highway (S/B 404 somewhere north of Hwy. 7) back in November. I did a lot of research and interviewed several lawyers (retained two of them at first before deciding which one I wanted to go with), and it paid off in that I managed to keep my licence despite the severity of the offence. My lawyer managed to convince the prosecutor that there were exceptional circumstances in my case (of which I had proof and which the officer's notes corroborated) and that I generally drive responsibly and am not a habitual speeder, so the prosecution agreed to seek the minimum - but for 85 over they will likely seek a high fine and a long suspension if not jail.

They will NOT plead this down to a lesser offence. Unless there are fatal errors on the ticket and/or glaring holes in the officer's notes (which is VERY unlikely for a stunt driving charge), IMHO your best bet is to hire a good and EXPERIENCED lawyer who can hopefully convince the Crown that you're generally responsible and that you've learned a lesson and arrive at a sentencing recommendation BEFOREHAND, which they will then ask for (and likely get) from the Judge.

If your arraignment is at the court in Newmarket at 465 Davis Drive, there is someone I can recommend to represent you if you're still looking.
