My representative attended the summons last week to acknowledge the ticket. Trial has been set for late October.
I'm still hoping that the representative will be able to plea down to 49km/h+ under section 128. In a worst case scenario where the rep cannot do anything to help me, is the fine for a first offence going to be $2,000, or could I get fined the full $10,000 amount?
Does a police officer have the discretion to charge under 172 or 128? I'm still kind of upset about all of this and keep asking myself why the officer could not have just charged me under section 128, considering the fact that I do not have a criminal record and that I have no prior tickets/demerit points.
At 57km/h over the limit (147 in a posted 90), is the police officer still able to charge under 128?
If you or your representative take this charge to trial and lose, you'll most likely face the minimum $2000 fine.
