Subject: 905er solves traffic ticket troubles
People can receive a traffic ticket for any number of reasons, but what many of them don’t realize is there is an easy way to combat their ticket, without the help of a lawyer. Thornhill resident Rene Papa is a full-time real estate broker with JDF Realty Ltd., Brokerage and is a selfpublished author of two books that outline how to combat traffic tickets in court. Papa first came upon the subject naturally: He received a ticket for a wrong left turn. He hired a paralegal to help him fight the ticket but soured on the experience after the individual pleaded guilty on his behalf. He wrote a book about it and then another. “My goal has always been the same: to help people win and give them the confidence to win,” he said. His latest book, Traffic Ticket Solutions II: Straightforward Procedures on How to Win in Traffic Court, was published this past December. “My inspiration for the second book was more a result of not having any information on cellphone [use while driving] charges for the public or readers’ consumption, especially since the new laws came in,” he said. When fighting tickets, Papa said the easiest ones to dispute are those with a lot of inconsistencies and where the officer is not clear with the evidence. The other ones he said that are easy to dispute are tickets involving radar, as machines can make mistakes, and unless they can prove it works 100 per cent of the time, then it is ineffective.
