Ticket because I didn’t respect a pedestrian crossing

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

This isn’t fun… Of course you would have stop if you saw it… Same thing for everybody…

Laurence story on the behalf on a pedestrian crossing :
************

Hello to all of you,
On May 11th, I got a ticket because I didn’t respect a pedestrian crossing when a pedestrian was engaged.

First of all, I never saw the pedestrian crossing since the line were completely vanished

Secondly, I never saw a pedestrian engaged, if that would have been the case, I would have stop, I am not a savage who runs over pedestrians in the street.

Question :
Can the vanished lines be a good way to talk about the ambiguity of the location where 3 police cars were parked to pull over people, which is a kind of trap if you ask me.

Secondly, can the officer prove out of any doubt that indeed their was a pedestrian engaged, with a picture. Since if it is only on our word, then it is his against mine…

Thank you and congratulations on your marvellous website that help us on many aspects.

Speed ticket while passing by an other car

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

John’s story… Who received a peed ticket while passing by an other car.

************************************

Hello !

I decided to contest a ticket I just got, at the same date, about a year ago. My hearing is in a few weeks. I am 27 years old and I’ve got my licence for more then 8 years and never got a ticket before that date; it is my first infraction.

The officer accused me of driving at a 70km/h speed in a 50km/h zone on the Laurentides Boulevard, in Laval. It is a basic 110$ ticket with the fees. I understand that usually people don’t contest “little” tickets, but most of the time I do it anyways.

I took this decision mostly because I wasn’t driving that fast and that I had to do an unusual manoeuvre and slightly speed up was the only safe move at that time. I was in the left lane on a 3 way road, traffic was intense and the road was diminishing to a 2 way. A car a speeding behind me (he should got the ticket !) and I analysed that it was dangerous to put the brakes, but the car on my right was also speeding up and the time I had to get in the center lane before the end of the third lane was pretty short. Speeding up was the only way for me to change lanes in a safe way, so I did it. A few moments after I passed by the car, I was the first car ahead and the officer registered my speed, without seeing the situation that I was in. (more…)

Ticket for overrun by the right

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Normand wasn’t in a hurry but he didn’t want to stay beside a “slowpoke”… so he decided to over pass him using the right lane… tu tut tut… here is a nice ticket for over passing a car on the right lane since a police car was driving right behind and saw everything! What can we do?

Hello, I didn’t find any related information on your website… A cop arrested me and gave me a ticket since I over passed a car using the right lane… but there was nothing dangerous there! It was on highway 15 near Rosmère. The left lane was filled with cars that were going fast and I was stuck behind this slowpoke that was going 80km/h!

I want to contest… how can I do?
