Officers notes are pretty much as good as they get. You will not beat this ticket without hiring a paralegal AND an expert witness that can testify to the problems with LIDAR. Most likely the cost to do this will far outweigh the increase in insurance.jigsatics wrote: ↑Nov 10th, 2017 11:28 amHi,
I got my disclosure yesterday. I was charged for driving 75km/hr on a 50km/hr zone but reduced it to 70 over 50. The notes are entered electronically but I don't see a date stamp on when the notes were made. Also, is it supposed to say where I was flagged? One thing i noticed is that it said that I am eastbound when I am actually westbound.
Here's the disclosure (I don't have a scanner at home so I just typed the notes):

So your best bet is to show up for trial and talk to prosecutor before trial starts and tell them you will plead guilty to 15 over. If they say no, then you can TRY to fight it (but if you lose they will raise it back up to 25 over) or you can just plead guilty to 20 over when you get called up and tell JP all your financial sorrows to try and get fine reduced.
