Need some legal advice.

I posted this in the Ontario section first b/c that's where it happened.

http://www.mazda3forums.com/index.php?topic=24491.0

Anyone know if Dog the Bounty Hunter will come after me or if I'll be "persona non grata" in Canada?

Thanks,

Re: Need some legal advice.

Youll have a warrant out for your arrest if you return to the province and get pulled over youll probably get fucked in the butt, other than that I dont think theyll come after you at all, but hell I dont really know.

Re: Need some legal advice.

Yeah, just don't go back there anymore. LoL. Sucks that you got busted with the radar detector.

My friend's dad ripped up a Toronto traffic ticket one time. He never went back to Canada (from Chicago) since then.

I'm flying to Toronto tomorrow for the weekend.

Re: Need some legal advice.

Don't worry about it. They won't/can't extradite you for such an offense so don't bother going. Just don't travel to Canada again, or apply to any jobs that require a detailed background check.

Or, you could just deal with it and show up and pay the fine. I bet if you called the court you could find out if there is any way to avoid the mandatory appearance.

Re: Need some legal advice.

Yeah you could probably get out of the court apprearance. You could just rip the ticket up, but I wouldn't really recommend it - could lead to problems in the future. Saying you'll just never go back to Canada is easy, in the short term - but down the road there might be some reason you need to go there.

I've never heard of someone actually getting pulled over for that in Ontario. That's kinda funny. I used to make high speed runs down the 401 all the time.

Yeah... well since my previous few months of being pulled over, ticketed and arrested for speeding. I wasn't going more than 105km/h

Re: Need some legal advice.

I wouldn't sweat it. I'm currently avoiding Ohio right now until at least September when the five year statute of limitations is up on a speeding ticket I got in Toledo. I actually drove through Ohio in January and I had my cruise set on the speed limit the entire time. Boy was I glad to see the Michigan state line sign! Not sure about the limitation period in Canada, or whether they even have one. Lemme tell you, living in Michigan it's a LOT easier to avoid Canada than it is Ohio (I want to go to Cedar Point SO bad, but don't want to risk getting pulled over. Oh well, looks like it'll be the summer of '06).

Re: Need some legal advice.

^^ lol, JimmyT, that new MaxAir rocks.* And you can't beat the great Millenium Force either.

Sadly, I got pulled over on June 13th when I went up to Cedar Point with my sisters, and g/f.* BMV hadn't updated their file to state I had my license reinstated so I was arrested for driving under suspension.* Fortunately, my g/f keeps a "rainy day fund" and was able to post bond.* Just got that cleared up yesterday.

With all the tickets, fines, and time off I could have bought some REALLY nice mods for the car. OR, I could have bought a bicycle and some nice mods for the car. With my current run of bad luck I'm opting for the bicycle ASAP. (get pulled over 4x in 5 months...)
