Challenging a seatbelt ticket
Yesterday I was driving with my boyfriend in the passenger seat. We got pulled over and my boyfriend got a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt.
We were both wearing seatbelts, and the police officer who was ticketing us seemed like he didn't agree with the ticket being issued. Apparently the officer on the street who radioed for us to be pulled over was adamant my boyfriend wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
So I have two questions stemming from this.
1) what are our chances of successfully disputing this?
2) the officer accidentally ticked the driver box, rather than passenger. My boyfriend doesn't have a valid Canadian drivers license, so there's no way he would have even been driving. Can we get the ticket cancelled for that, or would we be better of going to court to dispute it?
