Inquiry: I got a speeding ticket on Sunday for going 85km/hr in a 60km/hr zone. I was sure I was in a 70 zone, but the cop said it was a clearly marked 60 zone. After getting my ticket I returned to the spot where the infraction took place, and it says right there that it is a 70km/hr zone. I have taken pictures of the signage at the location, and have requested a trial. Will this ticket be thrown out for incorrect info?..even though I was technically doing 85 in a 70 zone?(still speeding).

Response:  It is possible that the location where your vehicle’s speed was measured was in an earlier location.  It is possible that you have a defence to the charge, or that the charge could be reduced to minimize the MTO and insurance repercussions.  To determine where these issues stand, we would need to review disclosure of the evidence to be used against you at trial.  At 25 km/h over the speed limit, the current charge would carry 3 demerit points upon conviction.  If you would like to retain our team to contest the charge on your behalf, we may be contacted via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
