Fighting a Traffic Ticket Starts When You’re Pulled Over

Traffic Tickets

COVID-19 UPDATE: X-COPPER will remain OPEN to the public via telephone and email during the Provincial Court closure period. X-COPPER is practicing social distancing and we are not currently open to the public for personal (face to face) consultations.

First of all, we really shouldn’t call it “fighting” a traffic ticket. Fighting or disputing the police officer who issues the ticket, and/or the judge who hears your case, is one of the worst things you can do if you want the ticket fine reduced or the ticket dismissed. And that’s why “fighting” a traffic ticket – or working to get the best possible outcome for you – starts when you are pulled over or otherwise approached by a police officer after your alleged violation. 

4 Ways to Fight a Traffic Ticket

 

  1. Stay Calm Always – Whether it’s in the car as the officer approaches, or in court, remaining calm is a priority. When you are calm, you are able to think clearly and avoid any rash reactions or statements.
  2. Never Admit that You’re at Fault – Don’t apologize to the officer who gives you the ticket. Don’t give them a reason why you committed the offence because you think it’s a legitimate reason. Officers will often ask if you know why you were stopped. Always politely say “no, officer, I don’t know”.
  3. When Choosing The Trial Option, Request A Disclosure – Anyone charged with an offence is entitled to receive, free of charge, all the information in the prosecutor’s possession or control that is relevant to the charge. This could include: investigating officer notes, witness statements, diagrams, and photographs. This information is called “disclosure” and you must ask for it in order to get it. This request may have to be made in writing. Contact the court office shown on your ticket or summons as soon as possible to find out how to receive the disclosure materials for your case.
  4. Put an Experienced Team of Lawyers, Paralegals and Former Police Officers on Your Side – This is by far the best way for you to protect your rights and get the best possible outcome in any traffic ticket case. A qualified, professional legal team, like X-Copper’s, know local laws, understand how they are enforced and are familiar with court procedures.
