    I got a speeding ticket when I was going 73 on a 50. I was facing 3 demerit points and also a fine of $120. Not only did Joshua get rid of the ticket for me but also got rid of the 3 demerit points. I'm so glad I met him and spoke … More to him. On a side note, his communication skills are outstanding. He is extremely well spoken and always answers calls and messages in a timely manner. I would describe him as someone who is quick and efficient with his execution. I will definitely be recommending more people to him.

These and other traffic tickets result in demerit points, licence suspensions, hefty fines and even jail time.
