Woke you up to the concept....

So you weren't charged? None of my business, but curious.

That's kind of what I was expecting, but other than my saying I fell asleep they had no other evidence of anything careless (they need 3 indicators). End of day its a provincial ticket with a fine attached. If I got charged I got charged. Somehow I got lucky and managed to walk away without any charges. Maybe its in the mail ? In Alberta they have up to 6 months to lay charges.

Don't know what three indicators they look for, its all up to the guy with the badge. If he wants to charge you, he will, if he doesn't, no ticket.

Careless charges here also carry a good hit on points, so you're lucky on more than one thing.

Yeah. After the 4 speeding tickets in the last 3 years, this would have hurt. And insurance would have gone way up !
