Handheld – Section 78.1 of Highway Traffic Act
All convictions will stay on your driving record for 3 years and could affect your insurance rating.
Once retained, we will file your ticket. In 2-4 months a trial date will be set and we will order the evidence of the case from the charging officer. We will review this evidence with you and discuss all the reasonable options. These options range from running a trial and challenging the officers evidence and pushing for a withdraw, or we can negotiate a reasonable resolution with the crown to reduce your demerit points and fine.
