I don't know why Ontario makes it so hard to find their Highway Traffic Act, but here you go:Interestinginterest wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2018 10:43 amOkay with my ticket it's different...there wasnt any sign posted that you cant make a u turn...i thought it is legal to do a u turn anywhere except there is a no u turn sign is posted...it was night time traffic was very less and i did had the clear view before making a u turn ..at the time of u turn no traffic was coming ....i did the turn caz it was safe to do so...the officer told me that caz it was a bridge and legally u cant do the u turn on a bridge ...thats y he gave me a ticket...its my first ever ticket...
C143 No driver or operator of a vehicle upon a highway shall turn the vehicle so as to proceed in the opposite direction when,
(a) upon a curve where traffic approaching the vehicle from either direction cannot be seen by the driver of the vehicle within a distance of 150 metres;
(b) on a railway crossing or within 30 metres of a railway crossing;
(c) upon an approach to or near the crest of a grade where the vehicle cannot be seen by the driver of another vehicle approaching from either direction within 150 metres; or
(d) within 150 metres of a bridge, viaduct or tunnel where the driver’s view is obstructed within such distance. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 143.

Based on how I read 143(d) it says you can theoretically make a u-turn on a bridge IF your view is not obstructed for 150m in either direction. Others may have a different opinion.Interestinginterest wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2018 10:43 amOkay with my ticket it's different...there wasnt any sign posted that you cant make a u turn...i thought it is legal to do a u turn anywhere except there is a no u turn sign is posted...it was night time traffic was very less and i did had the clear view before making a u turn ..at the time of u turn no traffic was coming ....i did the turn caz it was safe to do so...the officer told me that caz it was a bridge and legally u cant do the u turn on a bridge ...thats y he gave me a ticket...its my first ever ticket...

As someone already mentioned, demerit points do not matter when it comes to insurance increase. So you should fight either way.Interestinginterest wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2018 12:23 pmOkay i got it...so what can i do about it and how can i go about it ...thefine is $110.. i have noproblem with that....what about demerits points ? I dont want to lose that...n will it have an impact on my insurance or drivers abstract ? Should i just pay the fine or fight for it..please guide me as im only worried about my demerit points...n insurance increase...caz the officer said there is no demerit points for this...n there is confusion as well

Without seeing the disclosure (i.e. what the cop will say about the situation), nobody can really estimate your chances. And if you hire someone, there's a decent chance all they'll be able to do is bargain it down for you, which could still cost you on your insurance (Minor ticket for infraction A or Minor ticket for infraction B). So you probably won't gain much.

As far as no manual, at your trial date you can complain to JP before trial starts that you need the manual in order to question officer on testing procedure. If JP agrees then they will tell prosecutor to get it for you and set a new date. If JP does not agree, then your trial will go ahead.
The only way you can beat a speeding ticket when the officer has good notes, is to bring reasonable doubt to the reliability of the device. This would require hiring both a paralegal and an expert witness, which is costly and may only be worthwhile if you are either in danger of getting your license suspended or you were charged with speeding 50+ over or stunt driving:

As far as right to speedy trial, the time frame was (sort of) raised from 10 months to 18 months. Read this:

You can PM them if you want.gem222 wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2018 2:14 pmHi!!
Thanks so much for the info! This is the 5th time fighting a tic so i'm somewhat familiar with the process (3 times for my exhub and 1 time for me - in case you were judging! lol) but definitely not an expert!
The officers notes are really good, she checked the radar before and after and has info about her certification and also they have me on the cam so cant really say its not me. The only angles I see are
1) they didn't provide the radar manual as part of the disclosure
2) the trap was on a curved road
3) it was early morning so a bit dark? not sure how accurately they can pin you when you have headlights shining on a curve etc etc
Would I be able to PM them to you?
