I got this via e mail this morning which is why I am skeptical it will work. Even if it does when they fix the problem in the system you might get a whack of points all in one shot enough to pull your license.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET A TRAFFIC TICKET
This system has been tried and it works in every province.
If you get a speeding ticket or went through a red light or whatever the case may be, you're going to get points on your license, this is a method to ensure that you DO NOT get the points. When you get your fine, send in a check to pay for it. If the fine is $79.00 make the check out for $82.00 or some small amount over the fine.
The system will then have to send you back a check for the difference, however here is the trick.
DO NOT CASH THE REFUND CHECK!
Throw it away! Points are not assessed to your license until
all financial transactions are complete. If you do not cash the
check, then the transactions are NOT complete. The system has
received it's money and is satisfied and will no longer bother you. This
information comes from an unmentionable computer company that sets up
the standard databases used by every province.
I'd add to ICBC's profits if it made it so I only had to pay one fun tax per ticket rather than two.
Either way start flaming this post now.
