Are people still succeeding with 11b (reasonable time) arguments against Traffic tickets in Ontario?

Hey all,

relative got a ticket of which they filed about a year ago or so for trial. From what I remember on 11b you can argue it in a standard way and file the necessary paperwork so that it counts as an 11b argument. Are those still working to get traffic tickets thrown out within about a 12 month time frame or so?

Or does it now have to be around 18 months?

I believe the website I was using for step by step was ticketcombat but looking at you good (and bad) drivers for guidance here.

I believe it’s 18 months AND the delays have to be the fault of the prosecution. Cop not showing up, disclosure not provided when it was requested in a timely manner, etc...

You can still try at 1 year but like Cneufeld said it's more 18 months and you gotta track and prove (registered letters... faxes and all that) that it was all the prosecution's fault and show you made all reasonable (multiple) attempts.

Also... at least in the TO courts JOPs are not looking kindly at certain cases like distracted driving for example.

It used to be 10 months.

It’s at 18 months now?

Interesting.

Anyone have the superior court decision for that?
