I asked Ray Diamond, whose expertise on such matters is unquestionable, what traditional super-heroes were attorneys, if only as their alter ego? His answer: "Matt Murdock – Daredevil. And once I saw Bruce Wayne’s diploma from Yale Law School on the wall. But I don’t believe that is part of the Batman canon."

Here is how to avoid a Speeding Ticket

The best advice is not to speed. But it’s going to happen, everyone speeds, the police, the Judges and the prosecutors.

How do you avoid a ticket? There are times and places where you are more likely to get a ticket. School zones and anytime you see a Community Safety Zone are areas that the police are going to target with speed enforcement. Be aware on long straight stretches of roadway, and as you come over the crest of a hill or going down any hill.

The police look for good places to catch offenders. They don’t always base the set up of a speed trap on the whether there is a good reason to do enforcement, but more on the fact are they going to get tickets.

Always pay attention to the posted speed limit. If you don’t see the speed signs the limit in the city is 50 and outside the city its 80.

If you re driving 10 to 15 km/h over the limit your very unlikely to get a ticket. The police are regular people doing a job. They are going to use common sense and not stop people speeding a little over the limit. Most officers will set a personal limit as to what they feel is acceptable. A lot of officers will use over 15km per hour and some will say 20km/h. The limit the officer makes is totally within his discretion, and an officer could write you a ticket for even one kilometer over the limit, but we have never seen it happen.

If you see a police car or officer, stay within the speed limit. If you pass a police car even speeding slightly you could be stopped and given a ticket. It’s wise to let police vehicles pass or reduce your speed in the vicinity of a police vehicle.

Some officers using radar target the passing lane, especially on the 400 series highways in Ontario. Conventional radar targets the largest, fastest object therefore don’t be the lead vehicle.

Laser radar can pick a vehicle out of a group of cars all the officer has to do is target the vehicle and pull the trigger recording the speed. Again if you’re the first vehicle, your going to be the first vehicle checked for speed. For more go to

I received a traffic ticket for going 50+ over the speed limit and thought my life was overrrr!! I got my license suspended and my vehicle impounded- yes, this actually happens from one simple traffic ticket! I had never received a traffic ticket before, and didn’t know where to start! Until of course I visited! The staff there was so helpful and knew exactly what to do with this traffic ticket! I was relieved that I could just sit back while they took over and did all the work for me, and I didn’t have to worry about it! After they did what they had to do, and went to court for me for my ticket- everything was cleared! I wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to recommend Street Legal to anyone!

I was stopped for crossing a red light in Oakville, Ontario. But I was already halfway through when the light turned red. The officer was kind and understanding, very polite I must say.

I think however, If I was given a ticket, which I wasn't that I could have beaten it, because I did foresee caution, and had to wait till the light turned red before I turned. Meaning, If i turned on Green, then I would have caused a dangerous situation by taking the turn too quickly.

SO in these matters, caution and judgment is always a factor. IF you are stuck in the middle of a road and it turns red...then its better than risking the lives of others and yourself and taking the turn on green.

I would advise you to look into your local regulations on the specific laws in your city says to stopping. Each city is different. I am confused were you issued a ticket for the red light violation or just asking if you could have beaten it? You can find information for your specific city from to good references at

Can an officer drive by, than come back ten minutes later and write me a pedestrian jay walking ticket, when he had no clue how I made it across the street.
