In Ontario license plate thing will not help you and he/him thing will not help you.myps wrote: ↑ Hello,
I just found this thread and am in need of advice as I am heading to court soon. Thank you in advance!!
I was caught turning right during a time that it was restricted. I received my disclosure which includes the officer's notes and a DVD.
- The officer made errors in recording my license plate. One letter is off.
- He also used "he" and "him" although I am female.
The dvd runs for six minutes (from 7:06am to 7:12am), including the time that the officer said that I was stopped (7:11am in his notes). During the six minutes of dvd, the recording shows the officer stopping and ticketing another vehicle, not me. I was probably stopped afterwards.
Any advice on how to fight this ticket? This is a 3 dermerit point ticket. From the errors noted above, do I have a chance?
As far as video goes, you can make another request for DVD of your vehicle saying that the video you got is not you. But the officer does not need the video to get you convicted as they will just read from their notes anyways.
I am not a lawyer and I am not a paralegal and I do not give legal advice.
