Got pulled over for speeding and tinted windows. I know speeding attaches 3 penalty points to your driving record. but after looking through ICBC's link that talks about fines and penalties (http://icbc.com/driver-licensing/tic..._penalties.pdf
) there isnt anything about weather a ticket for tinted windows comes with any penalty points and the actual fine amount for the violation.
also, the cop handed me the ticket and just took off without any explanations to my tint and just told me that i was actually speeding excessively but hes only giving me a regular speeding ticket. this leads me to two more questions apart from the one above:
1) he used his radar gun about at least 150 M away to clock me. do you guys know the range and accuracy of these guns when used long ranged? and if i could use this as part of my dispute. (on top of the dispute of me following traffic speed of other cars on road)
2) i know the ticket is still valid even though it wasn't signed (as mentioned in other threads). but has anyone been successful in using this point to dispute their tickets?
EDIT: ONE MORE QUESTION: when i went to icbc a few months back to dispute a ticket, the guy there told me that officers were no longer required to show up in person to court in case of dispute. Apparently, they are now able to testify over the phone and that "the judge will always take the officer's words over yours." Is this true?
