77.1. Where a peace officer ascertains the commission of an offence under a provision of this Act, a regulation or an order, he may serve a statement of offence on the driver with a notice enjoining the defendant to remedy the offence and to furnish proof thereof within 72 hours.
The statement of offence becomes null when the required proof is furnished to a peace officer within the time prescribed. It is incumbent upon the defendant to establish that he has remedied the offence within that time.
Where a notice is attached to the statement of offence, the time prescribed in article 160 of the Code of Penal Procedure (chapter C-25.1) begins to run only from the expiry of the time indicated in the notice.
