The ticket fine is minimal, why shouldn’t I just pay it?
The fine amount on a traffic ticket is NOT the only penalty you could be facing. As soon as you pay the fine on a traffic ticket, you are pleading guilty to the
What happens if I ignore my ticket?
If you fail to respond to an Ontario traffic ticket, your
Will a ticket in another province affect my
licence in Ontario?
Any traffic ticket received in any other Province or Territory in Canada will result in a conviction and/or demerit points being recorded on your driving record in Ontario. There are even some states that have a reciprocal agreement with Ontario which could affect your driving record in Ontario. Ontario has a reciprocal agreement with the state of New York and Michigan at this time, but if you have any questions about a ticket you received out of Ontario and would like to see how it could affect you in Ontario, please contact the department of the MTO:

The officer didn’t show me his radar reading, will that get rid of my ticket?
No. Officers are not required by law to show a radar reading and this will not stand up in court as a valid
Does a mistake on my ticket make it invalid?
This depends on the mistake as most simple errors, such as one or two letters incorrect in your name or a misspelled address written on the traffic ticket, will be amended in court. There are some fatal errors that can occur on the face of the ticket that could get a traffic ticket completely eliminated, but an expert would have to examine the ticket to know for sure. If there are problems with the Set Fine or driver’s
The officer wrote down the wrong year of my car. Is this a fatal error?
No. Actually, nowhere on the traffic ticket does the officer record the year your vehicle was made as this information is not in any way important to the fact that you did or did not commit an
What are the chances that my ticket will be eliminated?
Can you guarantee my results?
No company can offer a guarantee any longer. Paralegals are now regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada and this sort of guarantee cannot be offered. I would be very wary of any company that is offering any promises or guarantees as these offers are contrary to current regulations. There are many factors that can influence the outcome of a matter and until we have full disclosure, it is difficult to predict an outcome of any traffic ticket case. We have a 98% success rate
What sort of factors can influence my case?
Officer’s disclosure is the biggest factor that can influence a traffic ticket case as that is the evidence that can be used against you in court. Any dialogue you may have had with the officer, the procedures he followed and his qualifications are some of the important elements of the disclosure. (examples: If you admitted your guilt to the officer, he would have recorded that information which would make it more difficult for us to build a solid
Other factors that could influence elimination of a ticket are the officer’s presence in court, the delivery time of the disclosure, the amount of time between the
Your past record could also influence this case.

If I file my court date and order disclosure, will your price go down?
Filing for a court date and ordering the disclosure are included in the price quoted to you and is not an additional charge. All it takes to complete these tasks is time and we offer these services
The officer told me to fight my ticket. Why would he do that? Will he reduce my ticket?
Officers now get paid time and a half to be present in court and it is not very often at all that you will go to court and NOT have your officer present. Think about it from this perspective…if you were an officer and you got paid time and a half to sit in court all day, would you not tell as many people as possible to go to court to fight their ticket? And what happens if you trust the officer (the person that pulled you over and issued you the ticket) and show up in court and the officer has a “change of heart” and is there ready to take your case to trial? Now you have no representation, no legal
How long does a ticket remain on my driving record?
If found guilty of
I heard that if I mail a cheque in for my fine with a few dollars extra, the ticket will not show on my record. Is this true?
Absolutely not. This myth has been flying around the internet for years and is absolutely false! The myth states that if you send in a cheque for more than the amount of the traffic ticket, they will issue you a refund cheque for the overdue amount and your ticket case will remain open indefinitely if you do not cash that refund cheque. Please do not believe this as once you are found guilty of an
Will my insurance go up from one ticket on my record?
This really all depends on your insurance company as they are all different. Please refer to our insurance page for information on how most insurance companies react to one ticket on your record.
Can an officer accurately clock my speed when he is in a moving vehicle also?
Yes. There are two types of radar guns: Stationary and moving. The moving radar is used in a moving police car and is calibrated to be able to factor in the speed of the moving police car. This means that if the police car is moving at 50 km/hr and the radar detects that the moving vehicle is moving away at 30 km/hr, the speed of the moving vehicle will be 80 km/hr. This is definitely an accurate form of speed detection and will hold up in court if the officer has his proper training and qualifications.
