Inquiry:  As a tall person, the seatbelt sits differently on the body. It was however pulled over and snapped in correctly. Also the officer spelled the last name incorrectly, which she took straight from the licence, Can this charge stand even though the height of the driver seems to sit lower on the shoulder and what would the cost be to have you represent in Barrie court. More important is that no demerit points be applied. The $240 fine is preferable to losing any points.

Response:  The incorrect spelling of the name would likely not be a fatal error for the Prosecutor’s case in your matter.  I would recommend contacting one of our staff via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299 to discuss in more detail what occurred with your seatbelt.  We offer a free initial-consultation and will require more specific information before being able to respond to your inquiry.
