i got a ticket for failure to drive in marked lane about two weeks ago. I got into an accident, because I collided the car into the divider. There was black ice on the road and that caused the car slip. I was going at a 110 km on highway 401-E. I have pleaded not guilty to it. I was wondering if I have any defense for this ticket or if I could get the ticket dropped to a lower defense.
I was also hoping if you could tell me how to get a continuance for the court date and disclosure documents from the cop.

As for disclosure, after you get the trial date, you can mail, fax, or personally deliver the Disclosure Request to the Prosecutor's office. (Keep proof of delivery.) For this offence, you want the officer's notes, and a copy of the accident report.
