speeding is an absolute liability offence. either you speed or not.
are you saying you never go 1kmh over the limit and so never commit the crime of speeding? say it
It's actually 0.5kmh. Rounded to the nearest whole number you know. ;)

Hire a Paralegal and stop worrying...You admitted already you went over the limit,your pass driving experience and the flow of traffic has zero substance in you asking for help on this forum.You more likely get a lesser charge or fine if you plea bargain with the cop before you meet the judge.One thing for sure your insurance will raise your premiums the next renewal unless they offer one waived charge for good customers.

Actually, travelling at or very close to the posted speed limit is what you should do - it's the law.

And, doing so ALSO is an excellent thing to do if you want to avoid getting speeding tickets - which of course, we all do
Oh god this is cringeworthy.

Smoking cannabis is also against the law. I guess you also abide by that law too even though it's complete *****. :lol:

Since when did the law look out for civilians, and not power hungry politicians? When was the last time a 50km/h speed limit saved lives, and didn't fill the quota for X police division? Never, because nobody cares about you. Neither do the people who make the law.

If SurplusPlus had his/her way, 80% of the provincial offences sector would be deemed surplus and out of work.

Is this what you want? Why do you hate your fellow 'guardians of the public interest'?

Lets just go ahead and break every law or at a minimum the ones we don't like.

The poster gave some solid advice and you mock him? Nice.

lol so you basically didn't do anything?

You got your minor ticket converted to another minor ticket, which still counts as a conviction in the eyes of your insurance company.

No, I originally had a major ticket with 4 points. Now it's a minor ticket with 2 tickets. It was the best I could hope for, since the police officer was present and he had all notes and his disclosure was pretty informative. So there was no point taking it to trial.

No, your original speeding ticket was actually a minor ticket - the points are irrelevant. Speeding below 49km/h is classified as minor. Insurance companies don't care about points. The disobey sign is also considered a "minor" ticket by your insurance company. So in the end, all you really did was have your demerit points reduced, which has zero effect on your insurance rates.
