I can't vouch for this, but a guy I know has done this and it worked for him in Port Alberni recently, this is what he sent to me:
Well, there is a better method of dealing with traffic tickets, or parking tickets for that matter. Refuse to play ball in their system, and use yours instead.
Traffic tickets issued are governed under the Equities Act. For all intents and purposes it is a "Bill of Exchange". I want you to remember that phrase, you are going to use it when the officer asks you to sign the ticket, which you are permitted to refuse. Look them squarely in the eye and say, "Officer, I recognize that as a Bill of Exchange. I will require the original, in order to properly pay it". While you're at it, do yourself a favor, keep a notepad and pen in your vehicle. You want to make notes of your encounter.
If you feel like showing the officer you are not afraid of him, you can go a step further. Any officer who interacts with you and asks you to provide him with identification and/or insurance and registration forms is legally required to provide you with three things, upon demand by you. "Officer, I'm going to need a copy of your business card, your photo id, and your badge." ** Now, trust me, he will not like that you have asked for it - but he is obliged to provide it to you. Just remember, this guy is packing heat - if he refuses to provide any of it to you - make complete precise notes with the date and time and don't go out of your way to piss him off. If you have a cell phone, or some other audio or video/audio recording device, you should already have turned it on before he even got to your window. It can come in handy down the road.
But at the very least, tell the officer you recognize the ticket as a Bill of Exchange and that you can only pay an original document. A copy will not be good enough for you. Of course, he cannot provide you with an original - this is their trick of putting you into dishonor immediately upon receiving the ticket and playing the game their way.
What you want to do within THREE business days, is to take that copy to a Notary Public and ask them to stamp it "DISPUTED - IMPROPERLY SERVED". You are not going to pay a bill that is not an original. In my business and personal dealings with any organization or individual, I must receive an ORIGINAL invoice - or I will not pay it.
Do not, under any circumstances, play the game their way. They would like you to follow the instructions imprinted on the reverse of the ticket. Do not do this. Ignore those instructions. Yes, they tell you on the reverse of the ticket what you should do if you want to dispute the ticket. If you follow those instructions, you haven fallen into the trap and are playing the game the way they want you to. Don't do it.
You may not believe this will work, but it will. Notary Publics are prohibited from advertising their services. This is one example why that is.
A notary public can do many things that lawyers do. In many cases, they have even more power. Did you know that a Notary Public can even issue default judgments? Have a problem with someone not paying their bill? Don't go to a lawyer. Go see a Notary Public.
(I wonder how much a Notary Public would charge to do this...)
