I cant think of a road in Canada that I have ever been on that does not have a posted speed limit. Also in every city you are usually greeted with a sign that says "unless otherwise posted the speed limit is 50 KM an hour.

So as far as I know we have no Prima facie speed limit.

I was doing 125 in a 100 zone, and as i said, EVERYONE even the cops drive 120 there, i had 2 seconds not paying atention and got caught at that momen. I was coming back from my ex's because i still had some stuff there



I am definatly going to plead not guilty and try to fight it, How do you get to court though? since i have to deadline is before the court date. Dont pay it and go straight to court?

Why don't you either
1) call them and ask what the process is?
or
2) look online?

You need to go to address on back of ticket and book a court date. You need to do that within 15 days. Read your 3 options.

Ride em like you stole em.

I would look at the specific code/law the officer cited you for. Research it by the book and plan a defense to it. Its really going to depend on that, whether there is some legal defense to it by precedent or by a technicality. Additionally, depending on what tactics you deploy like continuance, subpoena for information, etc, you may be able to plead the case down at the very least to a lesser offense.

Additionally, a No Contest Plea is not an admission of guilt and cannot be used in a civil case against the defendant as an admission."

Seeing we don't know where you live or where you got the ticket, you will need to check for yourself.

You will still have to pay the fine and possible court cost though........

I would like to not have to go in court since i dont really have any acts that prove i wasnt doing the speed mentionned.

Only thing i could use/say is that i was going dowhill and didnt see my speed for two seconds, also bringing my driving record to show how clean it is
