Speed Measuring Devices
If you have been charged with speeding by a Peel Regional Police officer and the officer used a radar or laser device to obtain the speed reading, you can obtain a copy of the relevant manual for the device used by clicking on the link to the manual. The officer's notes will indicate what device the officer used.
If your speeding offence was reduced by the Police Officer
If you have been charged with a speeding offence and the evidence at trial discloses a higher rate of speed, take notice that the Prosecutor may request the court to amend the charge to conform to the evidence in accordance with s. 34 of the Provincial Offences Act and ask the court to find you guilty at the higher rate of speed. Your disclosure or your Offence Notice may indicate the higher rate of speed (See R v Winlow 2009 ONCA 643).
