No worries OP. I'm sure an explanation to the police department will clear things up!
I don't know anything about Canadian laws but if you have some sort of DPS or DMV surely someone in that department can help you get out of this. If not, I'm really sorry! Hopefully you can find the douche who hit your car and him/her will pay for the damages and your ticket! This really sucks, OP. I hope it works out well for you!
Depending on the city you might not even have to go to court If you have enough evidence to send in, the can deem the ticket as void and you don't have to pay. At least that's how it is in Los Angeles I've fought and one 2 parking tickets just by mailing in prof that I was in the right/ they were in the wrong.
Probably could have just moved it yourself. But that still sucks. FYL, OP
That's pretty fucked up & the cop who wrote that ticket is a jerk. Can't you go to court for that; like if you feel you shouldn't have to pay a ticket. The notes from the accident should be enough. What was the other driver doing to hit a parked car?
cops suck to begin with they have quotas to make do they'll work hard at the beginning and end of the month just to make quota the middle they don't do shit. Please don't tell me that the cop is doing his job when half of the laws that exist are bogus and only benefit the rich
#19: I'm sure you won't be saying that when you desperately need help from a police officer, you little twit. Admittedly, there are corrupt some police officers, but there are corrupt people in every corner of the earth and in every position. Most are honest, hard-working people.
Cops don't actually have quotas. This is a myth, at least non of the cops in any of the cities that I know has a quota, however just like any job, it's expected they perform and if they write only 2 tickets all month, they clearly weren't performing. So it all comes down to judgement and that's why they issue warnings on paper.
I know a cop, but he's a beat cop so he doesn't deal with traffic stuff. He's the one dealing with domestic disputes and possible shooters. What would his quota be? He also told me traffic cops don't have quotas. Their intent is to make bad drivers drive safe, not hand out tickets to every Joe Blow. If you're getting too many tickets maybe you should think about retaking a drivers ed course.
@30 the cops where I live have what they call the unofficial quota. Unless they get a certain amount per month they'll be fired, but it's not a law or in their job description. The results are the same either way. Being fired for an unwritten rule doesn't suck much less than for failing to meet a quota.
The closest thing a cop has for a quota at least as a state trooper in the state I live in is, if they pull someone over while on their probationary period after graduation they have to write the ticket, it can still be fought and thrown out by the prosecuter however. But this is for the states and not Canada.
Um considering parking your car over a sidewalk is illegal, I don't think the cop is stupid for giving him a ticket #19. They are there to protect people. They meet quotas because enough people break the law to do so. No, rolling through a stop sign or parking poorly isn't a huge deal but it is illegal regardless and you can't call someone stupid for doing their job correctly and preventing potential dangers.
I seriously wonder if most of you have ever actually dealt with the police. Besides a DUI checkpoint or getting pulled over for speeding. They don't protect and serve at all, they would rather make assumptions and flaunt their power. I know there are a few good cops but as far as I have experienced cops are a band of bullies and thieves with badges.
Seriously? That's bloody cruel. It reminds me of the time I nearly drowned as a kid attempting to do butterfly stroke, and I held on to the pool lane, coughing like crazy, and the lifeguard just blew the whistle at me. Bottom line, it's a really sad feeling when the people who are supposed to help us just add to the problem.
I remember these situations as a lifeguard. Those lane ropes are a bitch, and they will snap if people hang on them. However if someone is having trouble with theirstroke, you throw them a flutterboard to hang on to instead. Obviously if you know butterfly you can tread somehow or you wouldn't be in Thai level of swimming. One of my jump in saves was from a woman hanging off the ropes, and she didn't realize they spun.
