    Many traffic courts in BC do not have Crowns to prosecute cases, it is just the officer in a tribunal setting. In that case a redirect may not happen unless the justice directs a question to the officer after presenting evidence in chief and cross examination. Provincial offences such as the MVA don't offer the justice much logic leeway, either the elements of the offence are presented or they are not. An astute defence council will recognize discrepancies in evidence, a lay person may not. Many justices will assist the unrepresented but well prepared defendant.

    if you were decent and the cop was on a power-male-enhancement-trip requesting video may show what an asshole the cop was. impounding for standing is total misuse of power, unless other stuff was going on .

    Depending on the bike, some of the seats out there are not meant to be sat on all day, they are so uncomfortable after 1/2 hour or so that the manufacturer should show up in court with you and bring a sample for the judge to sit on for his/her 5-6 hour shift at work.
