Inquiry: I was hit on the back quarter panel of my truck while I was makkng a left hand turn. I had stopped on a four lane road two lanes going each way, and signalled my intent, there was a van in front of me sifnalling a turn right to a road and there were two cars behind her stopped so I started turning, a car came speeding (admitted by the driver doing 60 in a 50 zone) around and hit my back end I would say maybe a foot and half of my truck. The officer spoke to me for 30 seconds, talked to the witness and other driver for approximately 10 minutes each. The witness has stated from the start it was the fault of the gentleman who sped around her to avoid the wait and when I had atarted turning he was no where in sight or I woulsnt have turned. I am the only one who didnt get asked to give statement, I was just handed the ticket for turn not in safety. Just wondering if its worth fighting.
Response: We could certainly get a release of evidence from the Prosecutor’s office to examine whether there might be a sufficient grounds to have the charge withdrawn or reduced to a lesser offence. If not, trial would be the final step in contesting the charge. If you would like to speak with one of our staff, we offer a no-cost initial review of cases via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
