Inquiry: I just got pulled over today on the 403 West. I got three tickets. No Insurance. No drivers license. Failure to notify of change of address. Last year I got pulled over for no insurance and expired sticker and i paid the fine and I had insurance and a renewed sticker after that. My license expired in summer this year and i got my insurance cancelled. I only took out my car today because there was some emergency my girlfriend needed me for and I got pulled over. What are my options and what are the chances I will get cleared, if any. I work parttime and go to university full time and no way I will be able to pay $5000 ! never been in this situation before so I am kind of flustered!

Response:  The most serious of the charges will be the DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLE – NO INSURANCE charge.  If this is your second offence for driving without insurance, the minimum fine will become $10,000 (+25% vfs for a total of $12,500), the maximum suspension of licence upon conviction will be one year.  When dealing with charges with such high fines, our first goal is to first of all see if a grounds can be found to have the charge thrown out of Court.  Failing that, the next step would be to build an argument to reduce the penalties placed against you.  Given the serious nature of your case, I would recommend contacting one of our staff directly for a no-cost initial consultation to review your case in more detail via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
