Apparently, a York cop can charge a speeder in Mississauga. I will fight this ticket, but must go to Newmarket to fight a ticket in Mississauga. I want all their disclosure evidence, in particular the video. I also want to know why was she there, in Mississauga, working? Newmarket Police told my dad, they can issue tickets anywhere. Peel Police, after telling him he must be mistaken because they York wouldn't issue tickets in Peel, said it would only happen if there was a joint task force operation in that area...which there was not at the time of his ticket.
Does anyone have any thoughts? Thank in advance.
As for the cop from another jurisdiction issuing a ticket that's not an issue as police officers can issue you a ticket anywhere in the province. Essentially a cop from kingston Ontario could still issue you a ticket in Mississauga . However you'd deal with it at the Mississauga court .
If officers notes say there were other vehicles and that she was using radar to get speed, then radar can not distinguish which vehicle the speed was associated with, and if the other vehicles passed you then clearly you were not going 51. But regardless you need to see officer notes before you can really formulate a proper defence.
As side note, any police officer in Ontario can write a ticketr anywhere else in Ontario... municipal boundaries do not matter.
And as far as roadside suspensions go for stunt driving, personally I believe the regulation that the minister created for this should be ultra vires (meaning outside their authority to create it and therefore of no force or effect), but until somebody with an $25,000 to spare comes along and decides to fight it, it will stay in place. If you are found not guilty, then you might be able to take a civil suit and try and get money back for towing, etc but again this will cost some money.
