Inquiry:  I got a speeding ticket in Northern Ontario – as per ticket – it says “speeding 111 km/h in 70 km/h zone.  The police officer forgot to write down the time of infraction on the ticket.  Is that helpful in fighting the ticket in court ?   The ticket was issued at 8:30 pm at night and I missed the sign for the speed limit changing down to 70.   Thanks.

Reponse:  The dating issue may or may not be a grounds to have the charge dismissed.  i would recommend speaking with one of our staff directly via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.  Your charge at 41 km/h over the speed limit puts you in the higher-end of the second highest range of speeding offence.  If a grounds can not be found to have the charge thrown out, it may be possible to at least have the charge reduced to a lesser offence to protect your insurance and driving record.
