Traffic Ticket Law to Change

Traffic Ticket Law to Change

police officer with radar gunThe traffic ticket law is subject to change in BC as the government is planning to remove access to the Courts from the ticket dispute process in order to speed up traffic disputes. Instead of receiving a paper ticket, alleged offenders will receive an electronic driving notice and the only option will be to challenge the notice before a notice review board.

About 14 per cent of the 500,000 tickets issued in BC each year are disputed, which costs the government $8 to $11 million per year. The new electronic process will save much of the cost.

This causes concern that access to justice and due process will be denied as judges would no longer decide cases. Instead, a tribunal would determine who will testify and what evidence is relevant.
