Can I change my mind about fighting a ticket?

Unread post by Crell on

I've been charged with Young Driver BAC Above Zero (Sect. 44.1(5)) and was also going to be charged with a criminal charge of Over 80, but the crown dismissed the case. My lawyer suggested that I should fight the BAC Above zero ticket as well so I sent it in before knowing about the Over 80 charge being thrown out. Now I don't want to have to go to court and try to fight this ticket, that I will more then likely not win and would rather pay the $110. Is this allowed and if so how do I go about paying it?

You would just show up on the day of trial and plead guilty to the offence.

I would do that, but the reason I don't want to go to court is because it is in another town 3.5 hours away and I dont want to have to take the day off work just to lose.

You shouldn't need to attend in person. If you fail to attend your trial, the Court assumes you no longer dispute the charge and you're simply convicted in absentia.
