Ok here's how it works.
First .. this 12 month and your off BS.
If anyone has actually been to traffic court ... and listen to the
cases before the justice .. you quickly realize .. that every case
Some people will throw themselves at the court and get a better deal,
while others won't say a damn word .. and suffer the full wrath from the justice system.
Second - before the court room opens .the fuzzz(aka pigs aka bacon, aka pork, etc) will try and offer you a deal. If you've been really really notty .. take the deal~!!!
Third - when you get the ticket from the officer .. say thanks.
Next day dispute the ticket. (I think you have 30 days - but I say next day to cover the "Procrastinators" (I hve time ; I'll do it tomorrow - wtf I've waited too long
Fourth - The wait doesn't matter. If it takes 2 years.
Remember I said subjective at the top. Some people may get off after 16 month, 18 months and longer. However, it's up to the Justice. He/she may say NO ... if that's your case .. your fucked and you should have taken the offer outside the court room doors.
So now you have your court date in hand. All the way from the BC Ministry of the Attorney General. So you’re the defendant and the MAG(min. of attorney general) is the prosecution.
You sit down in front of you computer and ask the MAG for full disclosure so you can represent yourself. You ask the MAG (NOT THE COP (aka Fuzz aka Pig aka pork ) but the MAG that you will need both copies of the ticket written to you by the office. The officers log book, the make, model and service log for the radar or laser unit. And any operating certs. the officer has. You can even ask for his service jacket.
Fifth ***** make sure to send the damn letter registered post ********
it's about $7 bucks Canadian. That way .. they can't say ..we didn't get it.. sad that you have to cover your ass from the law .eh
Keep the receipt portion and staple it with your ticket, summons, and dispute.
Now 2 to 3 weeks down the road .. WHAT IS THIS ??? Another letter from the Ministry of the Attorney General what could this be ???
SIXTH : open a beer, sit down ... put your legs up ... and open the letter and enjoy. Dear sir, The MAG will not be proceeding with this case .. blah blah blah .. again sir .. you will not need to appear before the justice on the schedule court date.
WHO's YOUR DADDY ? WHOOO ?????
IF you get off.. remember to send me some cash baby!! Daddy needs a new bike!!
There should be an address there .. for Victoria.
