Inquiry: Hi I was recently caught speeding and I was going 25 KM/hr over and had it reduced to 10. I was wondering though that the officer spelt the street name which i was travelling on incorectly and wondering if i can fight the ticket based on this.

Response:  If the only issue with the charge is the spelling of the name on the ticket, it would be very unlikely that the charge would be thrown out based on that problem alone.  If your charge was reduced down to 10 km/h over the speed limit, then the charge will show as a 0 demerit point conviction on your driving record.  While it is possible that there may be other valid defences to your charge, at 0 demerit points and having received a reduction at roadside from the Officer, a case such as the one that you describe would be an all-or-nothing resolution.  If you would like to procede further with your matter, you may contact one of our staff via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
