Grant on the Mike Smyth Show: What now for the BC Land Act?, Hefty fines for speeding in bus lanes, & Pickton eligible for parole

“Drive without due care, that’s 6 points, that’s not 3 points. And the traffic court, the justice of the peace, they don’t have jurisdiction or authority to lower the points. They can’t take something that’s 6 points and lower it to 3.”

“Why is this one 3 points? I’m just kind of wondering, I don’t know if it was properly reported by the RCMP”

“To this day, some will raise the fines, some won’t. They’ll raise the fines if both the police and the ticketed person agree on a raised fine”
“What driver would agrees on a raised fine? Well, if the charge has been modified”

“So if you are charged with excessive speed with a $368 fine and you don’t want that on your driving record, you could agree with the officer to plead to simple speeding with the raised fine of $500”
