Inquiry:  Got a ticket for failing to stop at a stop sign in North York. $110 and I think that’s 3 points on my record. Quiet residential area, end of month, Sunday afternoon, wife and hungry crying baby in the back, maybe I didn’t stop for 3 seconds, but I stopped 5 meters after the intersection when I saw the cop. Can I get it reduced to no points or even wipe it out?

Response:  The usual charge for failing to stop at a stop sign does carry 3 demerit points.  Most of these charages can generally be reduced down to a lesser, generic sign charge.  We will have to wait until we have reviewed the Prosecutor’s disclosure of evidence until we know whether there is a possible grounds to have the charge eliminated outright.  We offer a no-cost initial consultation for clients via our toll free number 1-866-801-8299.
