In Ontario, the option to plead not guilty to traffic offenses is a litte-known but GOOD way to get out of paying for tickets. If you choose the option, you are given a court date to which you and the officer that charged you must show up in court for a hearing with a judge.

More often than not, the officer does not show up in court and your case is dismissed. If the cop does show, you still have a place where you can explain your situation to the judge and your fines may be lowered.
