During the yellow light, my front car press the brake twice, so I have to reduce my speed for safety. Or I have successfully past the intersection when the light turned red.
I want to get some advice for my defense in the court. I sincerely thank everyone in advance, I really appreciate your suggestion and time.
(1) I was in the middle of the intersection, so I can not stop there. How was the Act described for this situation? I think my situation is different with proceeding after seeing the red light.
(2) The front car pressed the brake twice and it affected me in passing the intersection with normal speed. The reasons are due to: first, the driver maybe noticed the cop, and second, there are three or four people are trying to go across the Avenue, but it was not the right place for crossing the street (No white cross-walk line for pedestrian). Can I refer to that reason for not timely passing the intersection?
(3) How can I request to waive my demerit points (3 points)? This is my first time to get the Red light ticket.
This situation coupled with the bad weather may just work.
If you decide not to pursue a trial there may be possibility of resolving your ticket to another offence effectively reducing or eliminating your demerit points and/or fine.
So the conditions where making it difficult to stop, yet you where closely following the car in front of you?kevin2009 wrote:I was closely following the front car when the light turned yellow. I think I can pass and it was raining so I did not stop.
Sound like your lucky you didn't also get a careless or following too closely charge. Becareful with what you say in court.
Demerit points are run by the MTO, nobody can waive or reduce them. The only thing you can do to change the number to receive is to beat the ticket or plead guilty to a charge with few points assigned to it.kevin2009 wrote:(3) How can I request to waive my demerit points (3 points)?
