Officers have 7 days to file the ticket with the court after they issue it to you. The officer in this case did not, which means your ticket is gone and you do not need to worry about.macrossr wrote: ↑Sep 7th, 2017 10:00 amHi I received a ticket for follow too close after an accident and request for early resolution. Just received a letter stating that the provincial court refusing and voiding the ticket as the police officer filed outside of 7 days. And that the officer may reserve the offence notice at later date. What does that mean? Is that mean my ticket is voided ( unless the officer decide to file again?)
However, the officer has 6 months from the date of the offence to re-issue a new ticket if they choose to. They will come knocking on your door looking for you if they try to re-issue because you have to be "served" the ticket. Most likely if it is minor traffic offence, the officer will not bother tracking you down to re-issue.
So for now, celebrate the win and don't worry about it!
