Too many variables - some insurance allow for a couple or three minors before a rate bump, some hit after one. How big was the ticket?Got a speeding ticket. Any idea how much % increase I must expect on renewal from a minor speeding ticket. Less than 50% or more ?
120 in a 90 zone (DVP) lol.Too many variables - some insurance allow for a couple or three minors before a rate bump, some hit after one. How big was the ticket?
The funny thing is 120 on the DVP on regular weekdays if it’s not slowed down from traffic is a standard speed. Probably stood out even more now that traffic is so drastically reduced.ya I can see he would not like that, but how did he actually clock your speed? or did 120 just suit his need.
The paralegal "ticket fighter" people are generally a waste of time and money. They classify a dollar-drop on the fine a "Win" so you pay them..but the ticket still goes on your record anyways.OTT Legal is advising that court is closed until June 1st and they can file ticket online in June to get a court date (For fighting)
I would probably challenge tickets now. You have a good chance of the trial being long in the future. Not sure how the courts are going to deal with right to a speedy trial when there is a big gap in the justice system timeline.The paralegal "ticket fighter" people are generally a waste of time and money.

Unless you have a rock solid valid legal route that you know the ticket may be dismissed on, don't waste your time and money. You can accomplish the same thing they will just showing up and talking to the prosecutor at first appearance.
I think some police forces have said speeding tickets are up 35%. Easier fishing without the rocks in the stream to slow them down.Fair argument...but WILL there be a big backlog in tickets? Roads are pretty much empty right now. Insurance companies are rebating premiums because there's almost zero claims. Some cars haven't even left peoples driveways in a month now.
Yes, what tickets ARE being issued are pretty big (like some of the HTA172's the OPP have publicized because of people who think said empty roads are the autobahn) but there's just not a lot of them being written right now in the bigger scheme of things.
At the donut stores, but they are closed now? I don't know. My suspicion is some of the volume related police work will be down (fender benders, following too closely etc). Based on what I have seen intersection charges should be up.Interesting. Fits with the stupidity I saw on the roads when I ventured through Toronto a few weeks ago. Speeds seem about the same as usual (with a few exceptions), but I guess with the lighter traffic it's more like shooting fish in a barrel now.
Question I guess would then be....where was all this traffic enforcement before this all happened?
