Q&A - Two Tickets for One Crash
I was given a ticket after I alledgedly hit a parked car with no one inside.
I was first given a ticket for breaking section 68(1) for hitting this vehicle. Several days later a different officer of the Port Moody police came back and gave me a second ticket for breaking section 68(2). These 2 tickets were given to me for the one single alledged offense. They both have the same date as well.
My question is why are they giving me 2 tickets for the one offense. I originally thought that the first ticket was a mistake b/c there was no one in the car that I alledgedly hit. So the police came back and gave me the correct ticket which was Section 68(2) instead of 68(1). But I disputed both tickets to be safe but both are proceeding to court with in a month. Can they give me 2 tickets for one alledged offense.
I wrote to the Port Moody Police but they arent responding. Also If I didn't realize that a collision occured is that an acceptable defense? I honestly did not even realize that any contact been made between my car and the car I alledgedly hit.
So please get back to me with any info you might have on this subject.
