Missed the time to dispute a ticket? Filing a late ticket dispute

When it comes to disputing a traffic ticket, you only have 30 days from the date you got the ticket to file for a dispute.

If you miss the 30-day time limit, you may be able to file a late dispute of your ticket, but this is only permitted in certain circumstances where you missed the time limit for reasons beyond your control.

In order to file a late dispute, you must submit an application to the court, and it can only be filed if you have not paid the ticket. If you’ve already paid, your options are different and will be touched on later in this blog.

Kyla on Global News: Advocate says Jake Virtanen acquittal shows high bar for justice in sex assault cases

Former Vancouver Canucks forward Jake Virtanen’s acquittal on a sexual assault charge Tuesday shows the high bar set for women who come forward with criminal complaints, lawyers and advocates say.

A jury of eight men and four women found Virtanen not guilty following a week-long trial that hinged primarily on the different accounts between the athlete and the complainant of a 2017 encounter.

Kyla Lee, a Vancouver-based criminal lawyer who was not involved in the case, says that instruction is common in criminal trials and is an especially high bar to clear in sexual assault cases.

“You don’t have to believe what somebody says in order to have reasonable doubt,” she told Global News.

“These cases (sexual assault trials) are often ‘he said, she said’ cases. But really, it’s a case about credibility … and the only time somebody can be convicted is when there’s proof beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Difference between the Driver Risk Premium and the Driver Penalty Point Premium?

The Driver Risk Premium is a premium that you get invoiced once a year based on the number of convictions that you have on your driving record, depending on what those convictions are.

Not every ticket you get will trigger a Driver Risk Premium invoice, but the tickets that do trigger it are the ones considered to be high-risk offences.
