Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Saftey Act
Was issued a summons in Saskatoon Saskatchewan for Trafic Saftey Act 253(3). Failure to report accident to police officer. I did leave the accident site a block away as it was a very busy intersection with no parking lane. Police on scene within 5 minutes and met him as I was walking back to accident site a police officer intervened and gave me growing through red light which is a fine and it is paid. I had no intention of evading him and I was returning to scene. As I understand it ignorance of a law is not defensible, and I am fine with pleading guilty, however I do not know what penalty is for this charge and want that information before I appear. Question is what are range of penalties for pleading guilty ??? There was no impairment and police officer did a ask sobriety related questions and was satisfied with my response.

Automobile insurance case in FL... the situation is this,
Automobile insurance case in FL...the situation is this, 2 years ago I was in an accident in which after stopping at the left turn signal, i proceeded to make a left turn on the green light. The other person coming in the opposite direction ran the red light and totaled my car. The officer who arrived post the event said it was a no fault situation. my insurance said it was a he said/she said case. the other person is now suing me and taking me to court to get more of my insurance money for "my negligence" when it is clear as day to me that it was their fault (there were 4 other cars stopped at the light she ran - no witnesses came forth)we are now up to the depositions pre taking it into court.My question is: At the time of the accident i was not the actual driver. A European friend of mine, who was visiting from Prague was driving. He had forgotten his international drivers license that day. Since it was my car i told the officer i was the driver. On subsequent reports given to my insurance company and their appointed attorneys, I took responsibility for being the driver.Does it help my case, to now change my story?They want to prove my negligence in this accident to get more of my insurance money - all their medical has been covered and paid for. Per my attorney they have no proof other than her version of the story.thanks, ***** ***** Altamonte Springs, FL

Greetings Everyone, I have a weird situation and I wouldView more traffic law questions
Greetings Everyone,I have a weird situation and I would like to know what my options are:A few weeks ago, my family and I were involved in a Hit N' Run accident in Southern California.I was making a left turn at a light, when a driver coming from my left side runs a red light and smashes right into us.The Perp slowed down to look back at us, then he floored it and took off. Fortunately, I had a look at his License plate and was able to make a note of it.When we were being questioned by the officer, he asked us if we wanted him or his Police Department to have this person arrested.At the time, my wife and I felt that there really wasn't any huge reason to have this person arrested. All we really cared about was getting their Auto Insurance info.Big Mistake on my part.At the time of the accident, my wife and I thought that we had Full Coverage on our vehicle.We completely forgot that a year or so prior, we had lowered the coverage on our vehicle to only 'Liability' in order to save some money on our monthly payment. The plan was to bring it back to Full Coverage after some time had gone by.Now it turns out that my insurance carrier (AAA) isn't going to pay for anything, of course!I also expected AAA to somehow be able to obtain the Perp's Auto insurance information so that we could file a claim with the Perp's Auto insurance carrier.According to AAA they only send out 2 letters to the Perp's address on file, where their vehicle is registered under.Since then, I now have a copy of the Police Report. On there it clearly states that the accident was in fact a Hit N' Run and that the other Driver is at fault.It also show's the Perp's Home Address that is on file with the DMV.I asked AAA about going out to their home in order to get their Insurance info. They said that this is something that they do not do.I asked them if they can get the Perp's insurance info by some other means. They said 'No, they cannot'.I then called the Police Department where I obtained the Accident Report from (Corona Police Department). I asked them if they could pay the Perp a visit in order to get their Auto insurance info.They said 'No, we don't really do that kind of stuff. However your Auto Insurance carrier has investigators that do that'.I called AAA and repeated what was told to me by the Police Department. Again, they stated that this isn't something that they do.So at this point, other than going down there myself which could very quickly escalate into a bad situation...what can I or should I do?Is it too late to call the Police Department and say something like:'Hello, I was involved in a Hit N' Run accident a few weeks ago and was able to get the Perp's License Plates. We have the Accident Report showing that he's at fault and we have his home address. We would like for you to have this person arrested' ???Don't know what else to do at this point.Thank you.J.
