Some traffic offenses are more severe than others
Some traffic offenses are more severe than others, that’s why it is good to know when and why to challenge traffic tickets in Ontario. Some tickets, such as a burned out tail light or a cracked windshield, are best to just pay. In some instances if you can prove that the item has been fixed the ticket can be reversed. Other tickets like a careless driving ticket are another story.
Careless driving tickets cover a wide range of offenses. They can be people acting carelessly inside of the vehicle, distracting the driver from having full control of the vehicle. Wide turns can be dangerous to other vehicles as well as pedestrians walking along the road. There are many other offenses that can be deemed as careless driving, If you are issued a careless driving ticket it is important to understand what your rights are.
Before trying to fight your ticket in court make sure you contact an experienced traffic ticket agency. They will be able to look at the offense and determine if it is an offense worth fighting. You can also contact a paralegal and see what your options are.
In some cases the offense may cost more to fight than the actual ticket itself. If you are a person that has many violations already, the cost to fight it may be worth it. Or if you are a person who is driven by principle, the cost also may be worth it. If the offense is so obvious that it is not beatable in court, a good agency should let you know that up front.
That way you will need to pay the fine but at least you won’t get charged the fee to fight it. A good example of a charge not to fight is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This is a very difficult ticket to be beat because of the severity of the offense and the danger that a drunk driver poses not only to himself but those around him.
Many agencies will offer a free consultation. This is the time to ask questions. If you are confused by the offense or don’t understand the law that you have violated, ask them. They will be able to explain everything to you. Once you have a good understanding of the charge against you, ask if it is worth it to fight the charge. If the company that you chose cannot answer your questions, it is time to look for another company for assistance.
If a person is convicted of careless driving the fine can be anywhere between $200.00 up to $1,000.00. The conviction can also carry a term of up to six months in jail. If you are convicted of a more serious charge you can be imprisoned and hit with the fine as well. In these cases a good traffic ticket agency should be consulted.
If you are unfortunate enough to be pulled over and ticketed for a careless driving offense in Ontario seek professional help immediately. Know your rights, fully understand the charges and determine right away if your case can be fought and one in a court of law. Contact a paralegal to get their opinion or help if you need it.
