ETA: or was it a municipal by-law ticket? Seems the GTA frowns upon unplanted cars on your own properties...

You car seems very close to hanging out onto the road. It's hard to tell from that picture, but your back tires seem to be right at the curb, which would leave the back end hanging out.

thanks for reply, I check and car is within the range of driveway, its not sticking out on the road. You are correct about Boulevard, but we are allowed to park on boulevard, one of few street in the city that is allowed. I have moved the van in front of sidewalk now so its actually on driveway.CNeufeld wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2018 12:19 pmYou car seems very close to hanging out onto the road.

Second, is that concrete in front sidewalk? Because the space between the sidewalk and road is often the "boulevard", which is often city property, not yours.
And finally, as per the thread I posted earlier, the GTA frowns upon unplated (not "unplanted") vehicles on your own driveway.

it has vehicle make, and VIN number only. ticket says its a penalty notice.CNeufeld wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2018 12:31 pm1) You can put an old plate on the car, and it might prevent the neighbors from complaining. But if a ticketing officer comes by to check, he's going to see that the plate isn't valid for the current year, and could issue another ticket.
2) and 3) Those a very good questions, and I have no idea on the answers. Theoretically, the only way they have of issuing the ticket is by the VIN, which will go back to the previous owner, I think. Whether they can dispute it by displaying a bill of sale and have the ticket issued to you is another question.
As far as the current ticket goes... What does it have for identifying the vehicle/driver?

My RFD side says to ignore the ticket and get rid of the car ASAP so you don't get more. Be prepared to pay when you next renew your plate or license, though.

Request your disclosure, and if you don't get it in time for your trial, you should be able to easily get a delay. I'm surprised that you got a "trial date" from the officer, though... They don't control when the trials happen. Or did you get a summons?jbs101 wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2018 1:43 pmHi All,
I just got into an accident over the weekend where I rear-ended another vehicle. I was approaching traffic that was sitting at a recently turned green light. The car in front of me had not started to go as I would have expected them too. I hit the brakes and as soon as I applied pressure my car started skidding (it was rainy out and the road was very slick). I ended up hitting them from behind. Within a minute, there was a police car that passed by and handled the situation. He ended up writing me a ticket for careless driving and gave me a court date for November 22nd (47 days from the date of accident).
I am planning on fighting this ticket by myself and was hoping to get some advice. I have never been in an accident before but have had a couple of speeding tickets before. To me, it seems like my trial date is pretty quick. I am going to be submitting my request for disclosure this evening. Last time I did this it took about a month to receive.
Any help is hugely appreciated! I really don't want to see my premiums sky rockets from an accident AND a CD ticket.

Your first difficulty will be getting the pictures admitted into evidence. You'll then have to discredit the officer's testimony.brian636309644922974000 wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2018 12:28 pmI will be in court to defend against a speeding ticket - 102 in a 60. My primary defence is that:
1. This is a speed trap with which I am extremely familiar (near my golf course) and accordingly I never drive anywhere near 102 km/h there
2. The officer was hidden in a parked SUV behind a stand of trees and could not have seen me for the time necessary to determine if I was speeding. Given his position , his claim on locking in on my vehicle from 80M with radar is impossible and his claim to have had a clear, unobstructed view is a lie. I have photos of my vehicle parked where he was from different distances and he could not have seen me until 25M which is when I first saw him. It is more likely that he was watching a radar sign posted in that location which was there to keep motorists from speeding and using it for guidance.
3. Unlike officers who stand roadside with radar gun held in position, this officer not set with his radar gun. He had to quickly reach for his radar gun as I got close and thus was not prepared in position. His statement makes no mention of other vehicles on the road. Perhaps he measured something else moving.
Do I stand a chance of winning at trial?
What does "No icc of offence? mean? It appears on the officer's statement.

You're right, it sounds like I received a summons to appear. Should I still request disclosure?CNeufeld wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2018 1:48 pmRequest your disclosure, and if you don't get it in time for your trial, you should be able to easily get a delay.

Not sure what you're trying to show. But here's my thoughts...brian636309644922974000 wrote: ↑Oct 9th, 2018 2:43 pm40M-2018-05-21 14.39.49.jpgWhen I attended court to postpone the trial every single person took the reduced fine other than one guy who had precisely the same ticket as mine - same place, identical speed, one week later. The officer was not available but the prosecutor would ditch the case because of the "extreme" nature of the violation. So I either plea bargain or defend. The officer's testimony is a lie and I hope that I can make that apparent by showing the inconsistency of his position with his claim to have seen me approaching at about 100km/hr from 100 metres. The photos help demonstrate that. They also show the position of the radar machine mounted on the adjacent lamppost which he likely used for guidance rather than viewing my vehicle in the distance. See sample photo taken from 40 metres with my car hidden just as his was.
