Ticket for not making an appropriated stop

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Hi,

My son got a ticket for not making an appropriated stop at the corner of Yulle & Hymus. He then continue his route by turning  left into the shopping plaza , he realized that he was followed by a cop but thought nothing of it since the local station is also in the strip mall. The policemen  finally stopped him for the STOP infraction he had noticed on the main road.
After being handed the ticket, my son realized that the ticket was issue to  his middle name & last name .The police officer   did not put  his full name as it appear on his drivers licences.
In your opinion, is this ground enough to contest the ticket on that technicality, it seems that the office was not very observant!

thank you for you opinion,

Ticket for not making a “full stop”

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Hi,

Here’s my story…I left work and at the stop just outside the parking lot, I was stopped by a cop for not making a “full stop”. When he pulled me over I was shocked, I knew I had done my stop…as I always have at that intersection for the last 10 years.

First thing he says is that I didn’t stop at the stop sign…then he changes the story to I “slowed down but didn’t stop completely”. He asked me where I was coming from, I answered work and named my company…He proceeds to tell me that he is doing traffic control, following complaints from neighbors about employees at my particular place of work driving erratically and dangerously…

I have 2 witnesses who were driving behind me, who swear they saw me stop completely…they also were shocked to see the cop come flying off the sidestreet, siren and lights screaming after me…both though he was going on a call (he completely burned his stop to turn on the road to come after me at high speed – even though I was only rolling along at 30km in a park zone)….

Even worse, is that the ticket says the infraction took place at 4:33pm…which is not even possible since I only left my desk at 4:30pm and it took longer than 3 minutes to get from my desk, to the car, have a conversation with two different people and get to the stop sign…

Should I just pay up…it’s a he said/she said right?…what do you think…it’s 156$ and 3 demerit points…a big price for something I know I didn’t do!

Ticket for not stopping at a stop sign

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Hi,
A few weeks ago, I was pulled over for not stopping at a stop sign.

I was approaching a T-intersection near my house … I saw that there were no cars, pedestrians or bicycles near the intersection. I did a very quick stop at the stop sign and looked to my right to see that there were 2 cop cars parked side-by-side up the street about 60m away. it looked like they were chatting with each other. When I pulled away from the intersection one of the police cars pulled me over and said she never saw my wheels stop rotating and wrote on the ticket that I went through the stop sign at 20km/h. I’m sure I stopped at the sign, even if it was very brief.

Do you think I have a chance of winning if I contest this ticket?

Thanks in advance!

Ticket for not stopping the vehicle while facing a stop sign

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Hello,

Today an officer gave me a ticket for “being the driver of a road vehicle and not stopping the vehicle while facing a stop sign” c.C-24.2 of the Highway Safety Code.

The penalty was $156 and 3 demerit points. I was clocked at 15km/h. What happened: I was behind a van who stopped at an intersection with 4 stops and then turned right. I stopped behind him, made my own brief stop at the stop sign and also turned right. What are my chances of winning if I contest this ticket?

Thanks,
Ruth Anne Shooflar

Pay first and contest later

he story of Joy… a ticket for a Stop… but he did it !

So, he want to contest… but he’s asking : <!– /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:”"; margin:0cm; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:”Times New Roman”; mso-fareast-font-family:”Times New Roman”;} @page Section1 {size:612.0pt 792.0pt; margin:72.0pt 90.0pt 72.0pt 90.0pt; mso-header-margin:36.0pt; mso-footer-margin:36.0pt; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} –> pay first and contest later?

I was stopped this morning on Royalmount for not stopping making a complete stop. I KNOW I did stop if you don’t it would be suicide, I have been making the same stop for 12 years, force of habit, if you don’t stop you are in danger of getting hit by a truck or other vechicles (a no no) You MUST stop. I want to contest this ticket but, it’s hard to prove a stop sign, my word against hers, I had no witness in my car to help me out, all I know is that I always stop there. high traffic area, I call it the danger zone if you don’t or won’t stop.
The officer was very polite but, very wrong and unjust, she told me I had 30 days to contest it.
154$ and 3 demerit points ouch… big pill to swall for something I am not guilty of…

I should contest it but, I want to pay the ticket in good faith…. not sure how to handle this since, I am still in shock.

What should I do, pay first and contest later or?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ticket for not stopping

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

We don’t often agree with the officer for the ticket he gives us… Here is a typical story from Michael who got a ticket for not stopping…
According to the officer… ;-)

His story :
****************

Hello,

I just got a ticket for not doing a safe stop to my big surprise.

I was following a car that stopped at the intersection (a T) with an obligatorily stop. I was behind this car and, according to the officer; I started to drive at the same time then the other car.

The stop line was far, at about 15 feet of the corner and I am certain that the car in front of me was far ahead from the line, so when I did my stop, I was on the line, where I did my stop before driving forward.

Is this contestable ?

ticket for not doing a full stop

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

When a street is quiet… we are alone… we drive slowly… can this allow us to slip at the stop ??? Question from Marie-France who got a “ticket for not doing a complete stop”…

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

Hello,

I am writing to you to know if it is worth it to contest my ticket. I just got arrested at 10:52pm on a quiet street because I didn’t do a complete stop.

I was driving at 20km/h but there was no one on the stop to my right except the police car far away, the one who arrested me, all of this cost me 154$ and 3 demerits points. I can’t believe it. They took 10 minutes to print the ticket. I was arrested at on a vacant space at the side of a red traffic light on a light lightened street. When they drove away, they did a U-turn on a full simple yellow line to go back at their initial location. Is it worth it to contest for this ? I can believe it that we can be arrested for this. While they were printing the ticket, a car passed on the yellow light and didn’t have any problem !

What do you think ?
Thank you.
154$ is a lot of money when most of all you drive safely !

My opinion :

I don’t think that you stand a chance… sorry…

Driving safely, is first of all respecting the signalisation…

Ticket for not stopping the vehicle in front of a stop sign

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

The “American” stop is often made in Quebec… But sometimes our stops are well made… Like in Claire case…

*********

I got a ticket on September 30 for not stopping the vehicle in front of a stop sign.

I am certain that I did my stop. I looked on my right (no car) on my left a car is coming towards his stop and he has a defective light, I then notice that it was a police car. I turn in the Metro’s parking lot and I was surprise to see the police car behind me thinking why.

The officer tells me that I slipped my stop. I told him at that moment that he got a defective front light. His colleague goes and checks it out.

Do I have some chances of winning if I contest this 154$ and 3 demerit points ticket ?

I haven’t got a ticket since 1981.

Stop sign not visible

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Andre’s question is about a ticket for a stop… but in his case, the stop sign was not visible…

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

S.O.S… Help me please.stop sign not visible

First of all good morning or good evening !

Thank you for this marvellous site of yours; it gave me the courage to contest my ticket.

However, I have a question to ask you.

Here is my situation…
I was on my working hours in my vehicle; I was following my work colleague that was driving the company’s truck for who I work in front of me. There was a stop sign but I pass by without stopping just like the two vehicles that were in front of me.

For the simple reason that the flashing light was on the right of the road hidden by a van and his 53feet trailer… it was impossible to see that there was a stop since the flashing light was hidden.

Is my case one that can be won because of the fact that the flashing sign was not visible and that the boulevard center divider strip stop was nonexistent ?

Thank you to take the time to help me and all the other people that are falsely accused.
