    Default Nailed This Morning In Ontario With Detector

    Can someone please tell me if demerit points come with a fine for possessing a radar detector in Ontario?

    I had a bad experience this morning on the way to the office, lol.

    Thanks, Joe.

    An "STI"?

    They saw me leaving a coffee shop with my RD on my dash and followed me onto a highway. I saw the bastards and immediately shoved the RD into my coat pocket. They got out of the cruiser and came at me from both sides.

    I rolled down my window and asked the cop on my side what was wrong and he said "give me your radar detector" to which i replied "i don't have a radar detector". he tells me that he knows i have one because they saw in on my dash at the coffee shop so i said "your welcome to search the car", thinking that they can't search me personally from what i read here a while ago. He got pissed off but nothing compared to the other cop who was now standing next to his buddy. This mofo started yelling and swearing at me big time, demanding the RD, lol.

    I told the first cop that i didn't want to talk to his buddy anymore and that i would only talk to him, lol, oh man.

    The first cop "informed" me that because they knew i had it, they could arrest me for "obstructing justice" if i didn't hand it over. I said "IF i do have an RD and i hand it over, what happens to me?"

    He said i would only get a ticket and they would confiscate the RD so i handed it to him. They nailed me with a $170.00 ticket AND a $110.00 ticket for not having my ownership signed.

    Bastards. :roll:

    Are you saying they couldn't arrest me even though they said they could, SmaartAasSaabr?

    I'm not sure what i lost other than money, that's why i was asking if demerit points were invloved.

    Well the RD I meant...

    I dunno exactly about the regulations around what they said. However, the cop can really say anything he wants to unless it's something like "when you go home, I am going to MURDER you!" I'd call BS but I can't be 100% sure. I am pretty sure they wouldn't go through all that hassle for a stupid $175 ticket though, at least I would HOPE so! :shock:

    I have 2 questions for you, SmaartAasSaabr.

    First of all, are you positive there are no points involved with the RD possesion ticket?

    Also, how can i go about getting one of those STI's your talking about and how much? :wink:

    Joe - I've sent you another PM. Not sure if it went through. Check out my post in VG2 / SPECTRE section: This is a very complicated subject.
