This is my first post.
This Tuesday I got into an accident. I was on 401 E driving towards Mississauga. I hit the parting wall on the left hand side and then went down in the ditch. It was around 11pm and the traffic was pretty light. I did not collide into any other car.
Basically, I was driving at 110km/hr and I hit a patch of black ice and the car drifted towards the shoulder. i jerked the steering wheel on the right and then to left and by this time the car was very much out of control. I crashed into the wall and then went into the ditch.
The cop gave me a ticket for $110, for failing to drive in marked lane.
I dont plan on claiming insurance for the car as it was really old and not worth a lot. The only thing I am worried about is the impact this will have on my insurance.
Please let me know if theres something I can do and fight this ticket off and keep my premiums down.
That's just my opinion, though.
