About The Offence

Turn Not in Safety / Improper Turns / Improper Passing / Fail to Share Roadway

These offences put a strong onus on the driver of a motor vehicle to ensure that the movement they are about to make (turning, changing lanes, etc.) is done safely.

While most of these traffic tickets are issued as a result of a collision, a police officer can give you a ticket for one of these offences even if you are not involved in an accident.

Follow Too Close

A driver is not permitted to follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent given the circumstances.  However, it is important to remember that just because you were involved in a collision; it does not mean that you were following too closely.

Our experience is that this is often a difficult charge to prove.  Simply paying your ticket and not having your day in court in such circumstances will likely result in costs you didn’t need to incur.

Your POINTTS paralegal can discuss this with you in more detail when you arrange your free consultation.

Why Fight The Traffic Ticket?

A conviction for any of these offences carries a fine, demerit points and will have consequences for your insurance rates.

Even though the onus may be on you to ensure your movement is made safely, that does not mean you don’t have a defence to one of these charges.

Speaking with one of the paralegals at POINTTS before taking any action with your traffic ticket will ensure that you make an informed decision. 

We will discuss the circumstances that led to you receiving a traffic ticket.  Your paralegal will then outline how our representation in court can put your defence forward to minimize your demerit points and costs to your insurance rates.
