Cour municipale

At the end of 2012, the Municipal Court had “heaped” upon the Tribunal approximately 18,000 files related to parking Statements of offence without their being subjected to the usual administrative review process. The Court had omitted this step due to the extensive inventory of files pending administrative review and the fact that it lacked sufficient resources to proceed.

Following our intervention, the Municipal Court launched a major overhaul of its procedures, with a view to simplify and optimize them. The incremental implementation of new procedures in 2016 was successful. Not guilty pleas are processed more efficiently and quickly. There should no longer be major backlogs of files pending administrative review, as it was occasionally the case previously: consequently, such “onslaughts” should no longer happen.

It is important to emphasize the Municipal Court’s excellent work and close collaboration in addressing this long-term issue.
