Question: My son was driving a vehicle registered under my name. I had forgotten to pay the registration renewal. He was pulled over and given a $400 ticket due to the unpaid registration. The vehicle on the ticket is clearly not the car he was driving, wrong make, wrong model, wrong reg #.  Is this enough to be considered a fatal error on the ticket? The car he was driving has since been in an accident and is off the road.

Answer:  Quebec law is not necessarily the same as Ontario law.  In Ontario, given what you have stated, there may be a valid defence.  However, I would recommend contacting a paralegal Court Agent in the local area to confirm whether or not this would hold true in Quebec.
