Is it possible to mail a speeding ticket dispute, today Jan 1st?

I got a speeding ticket on Dec 2nd 2020. My intention was to file for dispute but unfortunetly due to the holidays, It got put on the backburner and I forgot about it.... until just now. today is day 30. the ticket says is needs my dispute received or postmarked by today. Unfortunately the post office is closed, and it does not look like I can file for dispute online, but am required to do so by snail mail for some reason.

Is there anything that can be done here, or should I just pay the ticket (They let me pay the ticket online of course, and if I pay it now its $25 off less)

Ticket is $253 in BC for reference/

If you pay right away, it's not just the cost of the fine. Be aware that your insurance will go up.

Have you checked this link for BC? It says what you can do if you didn't file for dispute after 30 days.

Any drugstores open with a postal outlet in it ? You may be able to mail it from there.

Don't know about BC but here in Quebec if you ignore the ticket, don't send payment or admit guilt within 30 days its automatically disputed. Next letter you get is a court date sometime in the next 2 years lol

It’s different here in AB: if you ignore the ticket, you’ll be convicted in your absence. If you haven’t paid within 72 hours after that, they’ll charge a late penalty fine on top of the original charge, of either $20 or 20%, whatever is more.

In B.C., speeding tickets do not increase your insurance. There’sa separate charge if you exceed 4 points in a 12 month period, you pay a one time fee.
