Hey Everyone,

Beware! City of Toronto Uber Inspections are going on!

This happened to me yesterday. I was having a fun day driving in Toronto and stopped momentarily on Bremner just opposite Air Canada Centre. This random dude comes upto my car and addresses me with my full name. Weird. Then he says he is inspecting Ubers for compliance with City Bylaws. Legit anyways.

And of course, out of all days that I always put my Uber Sticker, I was too lazy to put up my sticker that night. He asked me my ID and checked my Safety Certificate. OF COURSE, I could not find it in time! Then he checked my winter tires... That went OK. He took a bunch of pictures as evidence since he is going to present at Court Summons in May. So I basically got two tickets.. Both Summons in court in early May.

Anyways, I am hoping I can plead guilty and the judge would be compassionate enough to reduce my fine..which could be as much as $200 per ticket. I was doing nothing illegal but regardless can have a bad day.

So all you folks out there.. Beware... Always put your stickers on. I have seen ton of Ubers not have any stickers. Don't be negligent!!! I might end up paying the price but I hope you don't.

Any suggestions how I can fight this..would be appreciated. Should I plead guilty?

It's not Uber enforcing this, it's the city of Toronto.

the app is enough prove that we work with uber, we don't have to advertise for free, if the city wants us to use sticker they must pay us

best to try and get it reduced. You are still at fault, just learn an expensive lesson.

Dont pay attention to the peanut gallery here. They still think all my emails from the city of Toronto are fake lol.

what kind of crazy idiot are you? I dont take any pleasure in anyone's problems.

All I can say, is that I warned all you snowflakes about complying with the mandated laws. So, go ahead and be a "cool" rebel and "f" the system because you are all too big and important.
Sergie or whoever the f you are , I'm sure you do take some pleasure in this as you were tracking people down and taking pics , the fruits of your labour come to fruition so please get real .
The only people you warned were the ones that didn't comply and on this forum that's prob not too many OK "idiot".

Well if you or any of your minions get cited, then I might have a laugh because you were all acting big and tough like you are above the law.
