Unless you keep years-old receipts from those times you paid off a ticket, you could be facing trouble with the government!
CBC News reports here that Blair Risdale recently learned that his driver’s licence was suspended.
The City of Toronto claims that Risdale failed to pay the fine he was hit with EIGHT YEARS AGO after being caught driving with an expired sticker on his licence plate.
The real estate agent staunchly believes that he paid it, but has no proof of that. Who keeps receipts from eight years back? He’ll have to pay $180 in order to once again have the privilege to drive.
City officials point out that there is no limitation period when it comes to fines under the Provincial Offences Act, and that stories like Risdales are not the result of a computer glitch or error with government records.
