Inquiry:   My daughter was fined with Disobey stop sign. She did stop but the police said not long enough. The police were also sitting in a apartment building parking lot when they saw her. is this considered private property and if so does the police have the right to sit there?

Response:  The length of stop is generally not relevant.  Whether or not the Defendant came to a stop is the issue.  Your daughter may well have a valid defense to the charge (a 3 demerit point charge).  I would recommend speaking with one of our staff via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299 about how to proceed in defending her charge.  The position of the police, whether on private or public property, will not have an impact on the defense of the charge.
