CASE LAW - R v Vershinin
Adrian Vershinin was issued an Intersection Safety Camera ticket for speeding. He disputed the ticket and a trial was held in the North Vancouver provincial court before Administrative Judicial Justice Hayes. Mr. Vershinin argued that the image of the B.C. flag on the licence plate was too indistinct to allow the enforcement officer to determine that it was a B.C. licence plate.
The words "Province of British Columbia" were not visible in the certificate evidence tendered by the Crown.
Justice Hayes decided as follows:
 The Certificate of Vehicle Ownership proves that the disputant has a license plate registered in their name which matches the licence plate found in Vehicle Image 4. The Crown relies on the enforcement officer’s interpretation that the “decal” in the image is that of the flag of the Province of British Columbia, thus proving the Crown’s case.
 The disputant argues that the image of the “decal’ is too indistinct to establish the jurisdiction and, having taken a view of the image, I must agree with the disputant in this regard and will enter an acquittal.
