There are over 2.8 million parking tickets issued a year in Toronto alone. If only 1% of people requested a court date to fight their ticket that would result in 28,000 court dates. That would translate to 108 court dates per day. This calculation does not take into account holidays or other traffic tickets. It is the belief of Court Agency that a HUGE majority of these tickets will never have their day in court and therefore be dismissed.
Don’t forget that if you have received a court date in the mail.
