What Action is Taken to Fight a Traffic Ticket in Richmond Hill?
The first step to fight a ticket is to respond to it. There will be options on the back of the ticket and the issuing police officer may have explained the process to you. If you have received a summons, you will have a court date printed on the front of the ticket. In this case, there is no need to respond since you have been ordered to attend court on the date listed on the summons. If you do not respond to a traffic ticket, the court will likely find you guilty by default. Once that happens, you will be required to pay the fine amount written on the ticket. If you do not attend court on the date listed on your summons, the court will schedule a trial date. If you do not attend that trial, you will likely be found guilty in your absence and ordered to pay a fine. In both cases, the court will give you between 15-30 days to make full payment of the fine.
Is a Fine the Only Penalty for Traffic Tickets?
There are many penalties associated with traffic tickets, depending on the section and act you have been charged under. If you are found guilty of an offence, the court may impose a suspension. For serious or repeated offences, you may even receive a sentence of incarceration. The Ministry of Transportation may also issue demerit points or a license suspension. This will affect your driving record and have potential insurance implications. Since all insurance companies are are different, implications can range from a minor increase in your insurance rates to a cancellation of your insurance policy. On top of any court imposed suspensions, you could also receive a license suspension from accumulating demerit points. We can take a look at your traffic violation and discuss all the penalties with you, at no cost. We offer free consultations to help you understand the full consequences of the ticket or summons you received.
How Does the Court Process Work?
The process to fight a traffic ticket in Provincial Offences court is similar to fighting a criminal charge. Once a court date is set, you will get a copy of the disclosure (evidence). After reviewing the evidence, you can meet with the prosecutor. Depending on the outcome of that meeting and strength of the evidence, the charge may be withdrawn, reduced, or a trial date may be set. At trial, you will introduce supporting evidence, examine witnesses, and make persuasive arguments to try to cause reasonable doubt in the prosecutor’s case.
