Haha omg i swear i was laughing so hard on this i started to choke and spit my water i was drinking all over the desk.

I think when i saw that picture and started reading i wanted to laugh so hard.

Haha is Cam Wooley in this one?

boy oh boy bookm sounds like trouble.

I bet hwybear cant wait to get his hands on him, that or get right behind in his cruiser with the lights on!!

The winner of the 2004 online NASCAR video game racing competition, Sean spends up to 5 hours per night racing online. He admits the techniques he perfects in his online racing influences the way he drives on the road. The line between online racing and real driving has become dangerously blurred.

Hometown: Stratford, ON
Occupation: Survey Draftsman
Age: 43
Nominator: his niece Melena, Retail Sales Associate, 19

Water Cooler Facts:
- He is extremely competitive and treats every stop sign as if it were the start of a NASCAR race.
- He has timed all the red lights in his hometown of Stratford, because he is obsessed with being first everywhere he goes.
- Believes it's safer at higher speeds than at a slower pace.

Main Issues:
- Speed
- Racing

Motivation for Improvement:
Sean is adamant that driving above the speed limit is safer because it keeps him ahead of all the bad drivers out there. We beg to differ and aim to prove his viewpoint wrong."


This is to funny :lol:

He is now famous to but by far bookm is the most famous.

I heard BelSti is having a party when Julian Fantino leaves the OPP :roll:

yeah....all the Timmy's jokes, heard them all.

truckers come in...you guys are always here :shock: your right the 3 cruisers and the 27 truck drivers :shock: :shock:

by law like everyone else we have to take breaks, so rather than sitting in the office, being hidden from public view.....we jump right front and centre and go to Tims. Then we are accessible for public to ask us questions, more mobile to respond to calls and show people we are human and need our "java" fix too!!

Random question if you happen to see an officer on break at a coffee shop would they get upset or offended if you asked them questions lets say about the OHTA, they're opinion on it, their cars, jobs, technology, radar/lidar, etc?

There is a few tim hortons i go to and it is quite often to see HSD officers there. I usually see them in their car though taking a break would they get mad if they were parked and you asked or only if they were in the shop?

Naw... He knows Cam cured me! ;)

3 more impoundments over the last week in my area. (2) speeding along an industrial corridor and (1) motorcycle poppin a wheely.

In your case, what pops to mind with my own experience is the fact that my closest friend, while growing up, looked an awful lot like me. We would frequently be mistaken by others, and in fact, my buddy even got in a bar fight once because some guy thought he was me. Since you weren't positively identified by your drivers license earlier, how can this officer now lay such a heavy charge later in the day.\

DEFINITELY a case for an experienced paralegal.

P.S. I vacation in New Liskeard. Beautiful area up there!

I did some winter field work in the Gowganda/Shining Tree area. I agree it's beautiful country. Great people too.
Now back to the topic.. This is a clear case as to why this is too much of a responsibility for a constable to decide on the side of the road. This issue should be decided in a court of law and I'm even iffy about JP's sitting in on it. In Sudbury, when one JP retired, he recommended his secretary for the job and she became the new JP.
What kind of a man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

we get asked all the time about stuff, it's almost a given, depends what we are doing in the car and location....I would just excuse myself if I was getting a call

#1. Yes.

#2. Hogs are like that from the factory...blah, blah. Usually the officer would ding the offender with illegal equipment if say you had a muffler with no baffles.....I know same law, two ways of looking at it.

You really don't want to risk a 172 conviction by relying solely on comments from members of a traffic forum (as knowledgeable as some of them are). I have no doubt that most of the members here sympathize with you and suspect the officer was somewhat out of line. But you're going to have to cough up the $400 or so to get solid advice and representation from a lawyer or traffic agent. There's no escaping it. I would never consider representing myself on such a serious charge. You'll have lots of time to relax and plan a defense. Be sure you plead not-guilty to both charges then seek legal council.

You can handle the Muffler charge yourself I'm sure. Be sure to motion for separate trials, if that isn't done by default. The officer is going to have to describe exactly what part of the section you violated. I would think he'll have to offer expert testimony as to the volume of your muffler (I'm assuming it is in good condition and not de-baffled"). I read a court win on a muffler charge somewhere. I'll see if I can dig it up.

75. (1) Every motor vehicle or motor assisted bicycle shall be equipped with a muffler in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise and excessive smoke, and no person shall use a muffler cut-out, straight exhaust, gutted muffler, hollywood muffler, by-pass or similar device upon a motor vehicle or motor assisted bicycle. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 75 (1).

In this case, the constable has no admissible way to measure the offender's speed. Personal vehicles do not have calibrated speedometers and no radars/lidars.

i want to thank everyone on here. i am just looking for opinions to my case. i fully plan on hiring someone who specializes in this sort of thing. i am already working on my defense.(i have video and eye witnesses to my actions during that day). i would just like to get as much input and opinions as i can get. so , anything you guys might have encountered or experienced just let me know about it. these new laws are basically a crime against us!!

I found several threads on the muffler topic, but no one follows up with the results, LOL. Here's one thread that might offer a little info on the subject:
http://forum.neoncanada.com/index.php?showtopic=64742
It's possible the Crown might entertain an offer to plead guilty to the muffler if he drops the Racing. Doubt it, but might be worth trying.

I hope you keep us apprised of your situation. You'll get lots of great advice and personal opinions that just might make your adventure a little more tolerable... maybe not FUN, but tolerable ;)

If you're not familiar with the Provincial Offenses system, be sure to read through Ticketcombats site.
