Top 5 mistakes people make disputing their own ticket

Many people think a traffic ticket is a relatively simple matter, and believe that they should be able to defend their own traffic ticket and that it’s not worth it to hire a lawyer.

The problem is, without a sophisticated understanding of the rules of law and evidence in a courtroom, and the procedure that’s to be applied in a courtroom, people make significant mistakes while disputing their own traffic tickets.

So here are the top five mistakes we have found people make when disputing their own tickets.

Drake in the headlines

Drake’s in the headlines…and no, I’m not talking about his song of the same name.

In a marketing campaign for their new album that dropped on November 4th, Drake and 21 Savage used Vogue magazine’s iconic logo to promote their new music. They also posted photos on their Instagram accounts thanking the editor of Vogue for featuring them on the cover of the next issue.

The catch is, they will not be on the next cover of Vogue and the album is not being promoted by the magazine.

And, as a result of the music stars using Vogue to market their album without permission, the magazine is suing them. They want $4 million dollars at least because apparently a lot of people believed they’d be featured on the cover of the next issue, and the magazine is not happy about that.

Pay now, questions later

Nothing is more annoying than getting a parking ticket, especially when you don’t think you deserve it. But can you imagine sitting in your car and a peace officer walks up to you saying they can discount your ticket if you pay right there, upfront? Would you believe them?

Well, that actually happened in Toronto the other day, but the thing was, the officer issuing the ticket to the person in the car wasn’t an officer at all.

The impersonator was walking around in a yellow vest, and holding a clipboard to really sell the look. He told the person if they paid him right on the spot, he’d give them a discount.

Luckily the police were notified of the suspicious man and were able to arrest him. They also put out a PSA that peace officers can’t take money for tickets on-site and would not offer a discount.

Meat beating

A woman in Ohio was arrested after she beat up her former neighbour with a log of meat. Yes, a log of meat.

The woman was at Walmart with her five-year-old son, when she approached her neighbour, who was with her young daughter and first attempted to pull down her mask and spit on her. But when the spit did hit its intended target, the woman used the log of meat in the other woman’s cart and started hitting her in the face with it.

Luckily, the woman wasn’t injured by the meat attack. The poor lady is never going to be able to look at meat the same way ever again.

Driving while under the influence of marijuana… is it the same as impaired driving?

When it comes to driving with alcohol in your system, in British Columbia as well as with the rest of Canada, there are certain limits you must stay below in order for it to be legal for you to operate a motor vehicle.

When a person drinks alcohol, with every drink they have, they become more inebriated and as a result, their motor skills degrade. By this we mean, they have less control over their movements, over their words and overall, how they act. When someone is in an impaired state, not only is it dangerous to get behind the wheel of a car, but it is also illegal.
