Got a Ticket?

ticket.jpgI have a ticket. What do I do now?

Once you have been issued a ticket, you have 15 days to implement one of the following options listed on the back of your Offence Notice (yellow ticket). If you do not exercise one of these options, you will be deemed not to dispute the charge and a Justice may enter a conviction against you. Upon conviction, additional costs will be added to the total payable. If the fine goes into default, an administrative fee will be added and steps will be taken to enforce your defaulted fine. For example, information may be provided to a consumer reporting agency and for certain offences, including speeding, your driver's licence may be suspended.

The following is a description of the three options listed on your ticket:

Option 1 - Plea of Guilty - Payment out of Court
Choose this option if you would like to plead guilty to the charge. Completed and sign Option 1 on the back of your ticket and pay the total payable (see below for payment options).

Option 2 - Early Resolution - Meet with Prosecutor (this option does not forego your right to a trial)
Choose this option if you want to meet a Prosecutor to discuss the possible resolution of the charge. If you fail to attend the scheduled meeting, you will be deemed not to dispute the charge and may be convicted in your absence. Complete and sign Option 2 on the back of your ticket and mail or deliver in person to the address below. A Meeting Notice will be sent to the address on file.  It is your responsibility to the court if your address changes.

Option 3 - Trial Option - DO NOT MAIL
Choose this option if you intend to appear in court to enter a plea of not guilty and have a trial in English. You or your representative MUST attend in person to the court office below within the times and days shown to file a notice of intention to appear in court. Bring the Notice with you.  A Notice of Trial will be issued and mailed to you with your scheduled trial date.
