Ticket?

Well, I got another ticket not to long ago, but this time I get a letter in the mail addressed to someone else with my last name. I'm not too familiar with how stuff works here in Ontario; but the cop who pulled me over COMPLETELY misspelled my name. Does it get trashed because the ticket isn't properly issued to me?

Just wondering if its worth fighting this time ;)

Should still fight it, and try to get it reduced by having a meeting with the prosecutor and pleading guilty.

Not sure if it applies to our friends up north but here, when a cop pulls you over, they not only get your name, but your plates, license number, and address etc. So a little mispelling will not save you....you're still screwed. :(

Technically the car gets the ticket. kind of what IceDragon38 said. Who's ever name is insured to the car has to pay the ticket. Unless you guys do it different up there.

You should get a 2.7 so you don't have to worry about that problem.

I have a 2.7 and got pulled over a few months ago. 17 mph over speed limit. I could not believe it can do that. I am surprised, the 2.7 has some balls. I could imagine what a 3.2 or 3.5 does.

This is true! I cruise along at 80+ up and down the hills all day long, no problem!

Here in Minnesota the driver gets the ticket.

They had cameras installed at some intersections that would take pictures of people running red lights and the ticket would get mailed to the car owner. They had to stop this because they could not prove who was driving.

well the 3.5 is amazing, At 80mph I could step on it, then it will downshift and you start to fly (redline) until you hit about 100 and before you know it, your engine cuts out a 116 mph, I hate when that happens.

that's why you need an ES with no speed limiter...

Well I have an ES and it has one. Probably for the best though, when you go that fast in our cars, it definetly feels "crazy" because of the size and weight distribution. Plus I have stock brakes and they wouldn't do me much good at those speeds.
