All traffic tickets in Ontario should be challenged! That’s our perspective and our advice to all of our clients when we are asked this question, and with good reason as we point out below.
Financial Penalties for a Traffic Ticket in Ontario
Severe and burdensome financial consequences along with a licence suspension are just a few reasons to consider fighting a traffic ticket, and for many it is the determining factor in whether or not to fight a traffic ticket.
The higher the fine the more we encourage people to fight their ticket. Besides the dollar amount of the ticket, you might also want to take into consideration the cost of a rise in automobile insurance, and the number of demerit points you’ll receive if found guilty, demerit points that could eventually lead to a driving suspension.
Another consideration is the amount of time that must be expended to do it all yourself. Many are required to take a half day to a full day off, in order to do the required paperwork. Your time and money are valuable and must be weighed against the cost to do it yourself.
Do I Really Need a Paralegal to Fight My Ticket?
It’s important to consider the ramifications, time, and energy that results from handling your own case, especially when the fines are high and the damage to one’s driving reputation can be considerable.
Serious cases with wide-ranging ramifications need to be handled by a professional. Your chances for winning are considerably higher when you employ professional help. Professionals know how to deal personally with the prosecutor and can work with them for a favourable outcome for you.
There are no guarantees with the court system, and although you can fight a traffic ticket yourself in the Ontario courts, it can be very intimidating. This reason alone is why many people choose to fight their traffic ticket by hiring a professional who understands the intricacies of the legal system.
