If you get it reduced to 15 over, then this is 0 demerits, however it can still affect your insurance the same as a 3 demerit charge as insurance companies do not care about demerit points. Demerits are irrelevent to insurance companies.zakregent wrote: ↑Jul 10th, 2017 5:55 pmJust got caught speeding on River/Gerrard. Police pulled me over and recorded 57 km/h in a 40 km/h zone.
Ticket is $57.50 and 3 demerit points.
Have insurance under my father.
As it stands now, this is my first HTA ticket (couple of parking tickets meh) and I have been driving since 2010.
What are my next steps? If I go to court to fight this and they reduce it to the 0-15 km/hr over zone, that means 0 demerit points. Do I still take a hit on insurance if I'm in that zone. Any chance of getting this ticket completely removed?
Thanks in advance.

You can not avoid affecting your insurance unless you go to trial and win and get the ticket dropped completely. In Ontario, even a 0 demerit speeding ticket can still affect your insurance as Insurance companies do not care about demerits at all.macky28 wrote: ↑Jul 10th, 2017 10:34 pmHi
I got a speeding ticket in Napanee by an OPP. The ticket said I was driving 131km/hr in 100km/hr zone. I'm a first time offender and I'm in need of your advice. I already receive an early resolution date for my case and it will be this coming Thursday July 13. What are my options at this point? What is the best thing to do to avoid affecting my insurance premium?

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I will be going to the Court of Justice and choosing the Trial Option. I'll update once I get more info.ShrekTek wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2017 8:59 amIf you get it reduced to 15 over, then this is 0 demerits, however it can still affect your insurance the same as a 3 demerit charge as insurance companies do not care about demerit points.

The chances of getting ticket dropped completely are probably slim to none, however you need to see disclosure before you can know for sure about if you have a defense or not.
Plead Not Guilty and request a trial with the officer present. Once you get your notice of trial date you can then request disclosure (officers notes). Once you get the notes post them here so we can review them.

You don't get it moved. You think the prosecutor and cop are going to drive to you?drey2k wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2017 5:53 pmNeed advice on a speeding in Construction Zone ticket.
I was driving from Kelowna to Vancouver on the highway. Highway speed limit is 120 km/h. Signs said construction up ahead reduce to 90 km/h, at this point I'm going 100 km/h. Another sign up ahead says 60km/h, and there was a flashing sign that said I'm going too fast "102 km/h".
So I slowed to about 80 km/h, no real construction in sight. When I see the construction up ahead I slowed down to about 65km/h. Then when I see the actual construction, I get stopped by a police officer who said I was going at 102 km/h in a 60 km/h construction zone. He was standing next to a radar tripod but never actually showed me a reading.
Wrote me a $250 ticket.
The court hearing is in Kelowna, but I live in Vancouver.
Is this worth fighting? If I do fight how do I move the court location to Vancouver?

You could hire someone local to fight it. You can always request disclosure and see what that offers first. And pay the ticket any time to avoid the trial. But unless they made an error, it sounds like you were doing what they ticketed you for. Which makes it tougher to fight.

If the officer does not show up for the trial, then you should ask for the ticket to be withdrawn. Although in Ontario it is rare for officer to not show for court.zakregent wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2017 12:45 pmThanks for the reply.

A side question I was wondering about: If I do choose the Trial Option, get a court date and the office does not show up; Does my ticket get dropped completely?
