    For those with a tendency to drive a wee bit too fast. May help prevent a nasty ticket! It's pretty cool in that it has locations in the states too.


    Wish I knew about this site before my $183 ticket a few weeks ago...

    Maggs :D

    Got nabbed by one of those on Steeles Ave going west under a railway bridge - nabbed me coming up the other side...

    it was 101 in a 60. Cop dropped it to 90 in a 60 and told me to do guilty with an explanation and get the points off. Fine was set at $142.

    Went to Edward St. location - did Guilty with an Explanation, arranged for a First Appearance.

    Three or four weeks later, I've went to the appointment. Council sat me down in a little office and took one look at the ticket and then at me and said she could knock it down to 75 in a 60 - no points, $45 fine.

    We then went before the judge and I pled not guilty to 90 in a 60, guilty to 75 in a 60. I paid the fine of $45 plus $10 for victim surcharge.

    The legal system saved me $100!

    Mind you, I had a perfect driving record, no points, no tickets since I got my license. Dunno if that shows up in their records. This counts as a conviction, but at least there's no points and my insurance very likely won't go up, either.
