The purpose of this thread is to raise awareness on traffic laws and penalties, so the readers would think twice before flooring it past the legal limit or before installing something illegal. As members of TTI, we are expected to obey the law to keep our good name going, but then again... **** happens.

To start the thread, please post the following info:

1.Violation:
2.Location:
3.Fine Amount:
4.Was it intentional? If yes, you don't have to explain.
5.Actions taken/ Remarks:

*If speeding, please indicate the actual speed and the speed limit

For now, please post past tickets received just to start the topic... then we will keep the ball rolling by updating it if someone gets slapped with a new ticket for whatever reason.

    #1: 2012 - Speeding, Bishop and Scurfield (80km/h zone), I cant recall the amount, Wasnt intentional; I thought I was only going 10 over, not 18, was passing a car at the time, Paid the ticket.

    #2: 2015 - Going through a Red Light, Mcphillips and Jefferson (camera light intersection), $200 or so, Was winter and very icy, driving at 50km (60km/h zone), light turns, hit breaks, to stop early for oncoming car to safely turn across traffic, I couldnt stop, slid into the intersection at .015 of a second that it turned red. Fought it, had a decent driving record, was going slow, trying to be courteous, and yellow light was shorter than the legal limit. She cut it to half. If I didnt try to be nice, I wouldnt have had a ticket

    #3: 2016 - Reckless Driving, Drifitng on Pembina. Icy, snowy, friends birthday and I was the DD and was doing a beer run with the legacy filled with friends. I made a bad decision to pull a little bit of a 50 yard skid through a corner. Cop saw and admired the drift and car. Still wrote me a ticket though. Paid that one for stupidity tax.

    Warning #1: 2013 - Reckless Driving, rolled through a stop sign and kicked the back end out.

    Warning #2: 2017 - Entered an intersection on a yellow, Entered on a yellow, was in my lane when it turned red. Cop was passing on the shoulder and doing some questionable stuff. I figure he was having a bad morning.

        Geeezzz.

        1) Going through in a right hand only lane.

        How the story goes is that i was waiting in traffic on my way home from work, it was crazy hot out. My car had no ac. I was in the center lane and i look to my left and see a bunch of cars cruising by. I knew it was all right hand only lanes on after another but figured if all those people are doing it i might as well join in. Well there was a cop sitting 2 blocks down and got all 5 or 6 cars including me...

        Paid the ticket. Stupid mistake....

        2) Speeding ... 140+ in a 70 but got it dropped to 109 🙌

        Went for a cruise with my brother and his friend down to lockport. It was just after 1 am on a friday night. Ripping around, having fun. Then i saw headlights in the distance so i slowed down (because you never know) while passing the car i saw the reflective police sticker. Then you can guess what happened next.

        Paid the ticket, 505$ then had to take a defensive driving coarse, 8 hours on a saturday and another 185$...

          #1 - 2015 - Speeding

          Was doing 76 in a 60 zone. Totally unintentional, just wasn't paying attention and was following the flow of traffic. My car was tie loudest do I got dinged.

          My fault, had no valid reason for spending so I paid the ticket.

          That was my first and only so far. Knock on wood.
