Question: I was going with the flow of traffic on the left side of the road, and the road turned into a downhill slope, and I merged onto the right. I was then hit with a speeding ticket for going 23km/h over. Do I have a defence? My main matter is for it to not get to insurance and no demerit points.

Answer: As the driver of the vehicle you are responsible for operating the vehicle within the law regardless of road conditions. However, as 23 km/h offence (3 demerit points) can usually be reduced down to a 0 demerit point lesser offence and may possibly be thrown out at court if a grounds can be found to do so. I woud recommend contacting one of our staff via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299 for a no cost initial consultation to review the details of your case.
