Ticket Options 

Charges

Important: When you receive a Part I Ticket ("Offence Notice"), you have 15 days from the day you receive the ticket to choose one of the three options that are explained on the reverse of the ticket. If you do not select an option within 15 days, you will be deemed not to dispute the charge and a Justice of the Peace may well enter a conviction against you. Upon conviction, additional costs will be added to the total payable. If the fine goes into default (no payment has been made within a specific time frame), additional fees will be added and steps will be taken to enforce your defaulted fine. For example, for certain offences, including speeding, your driver's licence may be suspended. Should this occur, what is owed in total must be paid in full to have your licence reinstated. It takes approximately four to 10 business days for licence reinstatement. A $180 fee will be charged by the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and must be paid directly to them. In addition, enforcement may include collection agency assignment with associated costs, credit bureau reporting, and/or further court action resulting in the issuance of a writ of seizure and sale of property and/or garnishment of wages and bank accounts.

Your Three Ticket Options

Payfines.jpgOption 1: Plea of Guilty - Voluntary Payment of Total Payable

Fine Payment Options

Option 2: Plea of Guilty - Submissions as to Penalty

Select this option if you want to appear before a Justice of the Peace to plead guilty but request with reason fine total payable reduction and/or extension of time to pay. Please understand that a Justice of the Peace cannot reduce a charge (e.g. speeding 20 kilometres over the speed limit cannot be reduced to 15 kilometres). They also cannot reduce or remove demerit points.

A Justice of the Peace is available for this option from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Mondays and Thursdays at:

Ontario Court of Justice (OCJ)
41 Court House Square
Brockville, ON K6V 7N3

Option 3: Request for Trial

Select this option if you want to plead not guilty to the charge and as such, be asking for a trial. Complete the required information on the reverse of the ticket under Option 3. If applicable, complete the "Changes to Your Address" and "Representative's Name and Address" sections with associated telephone numbers. File your ticket with our office either by fax, mail, or in person. You are NOT required to file your request for trial in person. Should you mail your request for trial, you assume the consequences if, for any reason, your request is not received in our office within 15 days.

Approximately two to three weeks after your request for trial has been received, you will obtain a "Notice of Trial" by mail which specifies the date and time you are to appear in court for your trial. Please contact us should you not receive a "Notice of Trial" within this time frame. If you do not attend court when required, you will be deemed by the court to not dispute the charge, be convicted, and then be fined in your absence. Court costs will apply.
