Inquiry:  My brother was driving my car and was pulled over for speeding. He forgot his wallet at home and couldn’t show his driver’s license or my insurance papers. He got a ticket for speeding and failure to show documents. Is it true that you can show up to a police station within 24 hours with license and insurance papers and the ticket would be waived? Toronto, Ontario.

Response:  That can only be done if the police officer involved has included a “48HRSTTP” (48 hours time  to produce) or similar marking on the top of the ticket.  Usually most speeding tickets can at least be reduced to a lesser offence to protect the driving record and insurance.  If your brother would like to speak in more detail about his case and where it will likely go at court, we offer a no-cost initial consultation via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
