Q&A - Can't Reduce Speeding Fines
I found that you posted that "the MVA requires that the JP impose the fine legislated for the speed being travelled. If they find between 20 and 40 over, for instance, they must impose the $196 fine and cannot reduce it." I cannot find where in the MVA legislation it states this.
I am curious as there are several reports of Officers saying that they are handing out a lesser fine to make you feel like you could have been given more so you should just pay it.
I was given a $135 fine and the officer said she could have given me a Dangerous Driving offence, but chose not to due to my driving record. Is this legal?
I know I was not going 23 over the speed limit. I never speed.
