Traffic ticket from 5 years ago saying it’s outstanding. No problem registering my vehicles ever
Just received a letter in the mail from Justice and Attorney General regarding a ticket I have supposedly outstanding from August 2014. Letter is dated oct 1 and says I owe $132.00 for a ticket for an offense “under the safety act.
Don’t recall if I received a photo radar from 5 years ago but have always paid any I have received and that’s only ever been two and those were paid. Received two actual real tickets, one in 1995 and the other in 2009 which we also paid
I have always registered vehicles in Alberta never having an issue and thought if there were any outstanding tickets I would not be able to register.
Letter looks legit, has my name and address. Has the ticket number which I searched on the fine payment website and nothing comes up. Phone numbers are government (I work for the gov so I know) and the website it directs me to is legit as well.
I’ve left a message with the recoveries officer and hopefully hear back on Monday. I find the whole thing so weird. How would I even be able to prove payment from 5 years ago should this be legit. I always pay everything on time.
Anyone have any insights? Thanks for reading my novel.
