What form do you speak off? The form that I had to fill out when I went to dispute the ticket?

It's a waste of time when someone disputes something they are completely guilty of.

It's NOT a waste of time when someone disputes a ticket that was wrongfully issued. (as is the case here.)

complete miss on what i meant by waste of time....

The ticket was written in flaw or unnecessary and so dc5 has spent his precious time trying to resolve it. Our wasted tax money is paying the cop to show up in court for what most likely be a rescinded ticket.

We are only hearing one side of the story tho, There could have been many factors involved on why it was handed out. dc5's attitude during the incident, whether the car looked safe on the road (regardless of legality/technicality), maybe dc5 drove like he could not see beyond his front windshield. hell maybe the cop was racist, profiling, gf/wife left, hated the snow... who knows..

as i said my attitude started AFTER the ticket was issued.. all windows were clear except the rear window which hadn't been touched and I was travelling at a VERY slow speed i was going 30-40 in a 50 zone, as was everyone else since it was snowing

Attitude should have no bearing - there's no law against being a twit to a cop, and if the cop wrote up an improper ticket out of spite for the guy's attitude, then he should be reprimanded, and severely.

Now it IS generally required to keep your car clean of snow before heading onto the road, to avoid obstructing OTHER drivers' vision, but this ticket wasn't written under that section (what would that be anyway, drive without consideration?). As it's written, the ticket is bogus.

Not always true.

Ask for his notes. You are allowed to.

Everytime I go to hockey I put my gear in the back seat because it dosnt fit in the trunk with the subs. Sometimes theres 2 hockey bags in there obstructing my view, so acording to this cop that would be illegal. Theres no way that ticket will stick in court, if you have 2 people in the backseat you dont have a "350 degree view."

finally got the court date for this ticket last week!!! its been 2 years.. I filed a charter of rights violation or w/e its called ( forgot).. because it had been so long.. I got a letter today from the crown, saying the ticket will be stayed even tho its been 2 years since it happened.. this is ridiculous!!!! The stupid letter didnt give any reason as to why the ticket will be stayed.. 2 years is a long time to wait for a court date.. im gona come prepared to court with all my research. Ill bring traffic act section 195 (1) (a).. i lost the ticket unfortunately.. but thankfully I have this old thread to read again and get caught up

Are you sure the court date is still going on. When they say "STAYED" it could mean stay of proceedings which would mean it's not going to happen.

And if it is going on and you plan to put forth a charter violation you will need a good reason still. Can't simply say it's been 2 years so toss it. The judge will grill you; how has the 2 year wait caused you hardship?

Yeah. Charges being stayed means a Stay of Proceedings, which means the case has been dropped.
