    Before I can give my advice as to what to say, I would like to know what "driving without consideration for others" means because 6 demrits seems like a ton, that's almost half, holy shit...

    First off, go submit a request for particulars. This will let you see what the cop wrote on the other part of the ticket (it will contain notes about the actual incident).

    Then you can make up a better story based on what info he has supplied.

    a friend had the same ticket for the same reason (racing off a light).

    Did the same thing as any other ticket..just went to see the crown prosecutor and demerits were reduced but not the fee.

    I guess it depends how good of a mood the guy is in. Each time I've been there, he rushes me through it real fast since he's probably sees a hundred cases a day.

    My brother got the same demerit points for a ticket. Except he was in a parking lot ready to leave, and some bitch was just passing through the yellow lines and cut him off as he was leaving and hit her. He got hit with "Fail to Drive in Parking Lane in Safety", which is 6 demerits. Plus he was found at fault for the accident too. Ahh well, he has a date in court.... That lady shouldnt have been driving through the parking lanes anyway. Isnt that illegal?
    I know you don't smoke weed. I know this. But I'm gonna git you high today. 'cause it's Friday, you ain't got no job, and you ain't got shit to do!

    First off you need to go see the Justice of the Peace or JP. He/she is the person at the counter in the window. Tell them that you want "disclosure" in your case. This will be the report from the cop about your ticket, it will detail everything that the crown has against you. It takes about a week or so for them to dig it up.

    Then depending what the diclosure says you want to go back to the JP and tell him/her that you want to plea not guilty or you want to plea down your case. They will ask you to sit in a chair and you'll wait for about an hour until the crown prosecutor or CP will talk to you. Tell him/her your reason for wanting to get the case kicked or reduced. You better have some sort of good excuse beside "I want the ticket reduced", again you want to refer to the disclosure form. If you didn't get clocked by radar then state that although you accelerated strongly from the light you did not speed or something along thoose lines.

    One other thing you may want to do after you get the disclosure is look up the exact offense in the Alberta Highway Traffic Act to see excatly what you are bring charged for, sometimes they give a ticket for the wrong thing...

    Last hope is try getting a court date in which you want to appear before a court room and judge. The CP will not want to do this because it wastes the systems time. If you get a court date, try to change it a week or two before the court date (tell them that you have a final that day and can't make it). With any luck the cop that gave you the ticket won't show. Also, fight this ticket by yourself, don't go to see the JP, CP or court with your buddy.

    Good Luck...

    I think it's called a "disclosure"... maybe particulars will work too, but I never tried to use that term before.

    You may remember a thread awhile back concerning 3 Preludes on Highway 1a all getting "Driving without consideration" tickets. Well, we went to court yesterday, explained our situation with the CP and we pleaded to a lesser charge and got it lowered to unsafe pass which is 3 demerits and $69. It was the best we could do and it was good enough for me.

    Nice, I was wondering what happened to you guys. I had a ticket that I fought a couple of weeks ago, I got it reduced from $126 and 3 demerits to $68 and no demerits.

    Yes. I'm guessing it was a 123a or b ticket? 6 demerits is a lot and most of the time, they overcharge on this one. It doesn't take a lot of effort to get it lowered down, but depends on the JP or CP's mood and negotiation skills.
