Traffic Ticket offences can be categorized into three different parts; such as part one offences, part two offences and part three offence. For example, a speeding ticket, failing to stop for a stop sign and following too closely are part one offence, parking ticket is a part two offence and lastly, stunt driving ticket and some careless driving ticket are part three offences. When a summons issued, instead of a set fine to pay, that is a part three offence. In the case of a part three offence, the accused shall appear on the date and time on the Summons at the Provincial Offences Court location specified in the ticket. This is the day that the accused would get the Disclosure. The Disclosure package contains all evidence pertaining to the offence committed by the accused. However, when the disclosure package does not contain everything to prove the offence, then, the licensed paralegal defending the accused should demand further disclosure. Upon reviewing the disclosure, the licensed paralegal defending the accused should come up with proper defence strategy. This defence strategy involves analyzing whether or not the elements of the offence are well proven by the disclosure materials.
For example, the elements for careless driving are “without due care and attention” or “without reasonable consideration for other persons”. Based on the High way Traffic Act, “Every person is guilty of an offence of driving carelessly who drives a vehicle or street car on a highway without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the highway and on conviction is liable to a careless driving ticket cost or careless driving fine is not less than $400 and not more than $2,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both, and in addition his or her license or permit may be suspended for a period of not more than two years.” Therefore, the prosecutor has to prove beyond any reasonable doubt that the accused drove the vehicle or street car without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other person.
