    Wow our legal system gets bought again by another part of the private sector. I thought the law was supposed to be unbiased but it seems the insurance company is making all the rules.

    Dont get me wrong some people do deserve to be penailized especially repeat offenders, but i dont believe those that get the odd ticket should be penalized so harshly (ie: deals with the prosecuter makes).

    It doesnt matter anyways being a under 25, driving a sports car never having one ticket, i have already bent over lots and taking it up the ass, while soccer moms in thier vans fly by me at 140 paying $50 insurance premiums.

    Just my .02

    ( dont mind the spelling or grammer was typing quickly)

    Time to slow down to UNDER speed limit. It's going to be such a hassle fighting a speeding ticket when I'm not even speeding<-(I drive a red sports car) cops would pull me over because my car handles awesome in the corners and "looks like I'm speeding"

    Now is the time to open a defensive driving school, 50$ for a every 3 point reduction multiplied by, like, a million points!

    Haha, that's just going to clog up the court system. Everyone is going to plead not guilty. The worst that can happen is that you'll actually have to pay your ticket.

    Yup just got hit with one of those, went in to fight the ticket, ended up goign from 3 -> 2 demerits, said he couldnt reduce them anymore, but cut the fine, threw out another ticket and dropped another ticket of mine more then half. Walked back out to my car to find, low and behold, ANOTHER TICKET

    Great times, shitty change

    First off, it question usefullness of photo radar and red light camera tickets.... If demerit points are so helpful what do those tickets accomplish....nothing...
    I think this is going to flood the courts with full challenges and bring the traffic court to a stand still, and everyone has the right to a fair and speedy trial... If they cant fulfill the court dates in a reasonable amount of time, the tickets will get tossed... Fight them all...

    Last year, I suggested a change in Alberta that wouldn't slow things down to a grind, it would merely slow things down to the same as other provinces. Yet, I couldn't get anyone - not even one person on beyond - to agree with me.

    Here's the way BC handles tickets(it conforms to the same standard definition of 'service' that almost all courts in Canada follows) :

    http://www.sense.bc.ca/tickets.htm#how_tickets_served

    And here's several hundred posts where everyone thought I was insane for even suggesting the same thing for Alberta. I made passionate statements about the Canadian Charter of Rights and how it should apply even to speeders.....it didn't matter, everyone on beyond still thought I was wrong.

    Well I know it applies to Drinking and driving offences..I know of one guy that has beat 3 impaired charges through delayed court proceedings, something about 90 days for appearance and no trial date for a year..Next time I see him I will ask him the gory details of it.. But DUI is also a criminal act as well so ?...

    If everyone did that they might rethink that position.
    They will just raise the fines to make up for the extra court costs.

    How about writing your elected officials about insanely low speed limits designed to create "speeding"?...In my neck of the woods I know the MLA has been taking alot of heat over some of the revised speed limits.. They will continue to do this until enough people complain...

    You think a miata is a sports car? lol

    That sucks, demerits are more important to bargain for than money.

    You can still fight for lower fines and points but not NO points.

    The Miata meets most of the core definitions of a true sports car more than most other cars out there.
