SOS Ticket in the media
Our Chief Counsel, Jack W. Rodriguez, is quoted as an expert in the Journal de Montréal article "Here's how to successfully contest a ticket". So, how do you successfully contest your ticket? Here are the tips given in the article:
- Prepare the evidence: You need to accumulate as much evidence as possible to make your case: detailed photos and notes, exact location of the alleged infraction and the position of the police officer (sketch or Google Map screenshot), number of cars on the road, signs in place, etc. Print three copies to bring to court.
- Dress and speak appropriately: Dress conservatively, so as to show respect for the court (don't chew gum, don't wear a cap or hat, no shorts... even if it's hot!). By arriving in advance, you will be able to familiarize yourself with the rules of the court: no telephone, no water, no crossing your arms or putting your hands in your pockets...!
