The Pointman is Randall Boyd Hicks, the original traffic ticket agent in all of Western Canada.
Randall joined the Metro Toronto Police Service in 1972, finishing his 15-year police career with the Edmonton Police Service in 1987. During those years of service, Randall developed into a courtroom expert in motor vehicle collision investigation and traffic law. He also became an expert breathalyzer technician, teaching those skills to police officers and first year law students. Randall’s favorite skill however, is his proficiency in high speed pursuit driving. Last we heard, he still holds the record time for going backwards through the pylon course!
After a near fatal neck injury on the job, Randall left the Edmonton Police Service and relocated to Calgary. There, in September 1987, he created the first traffic court agency in Western Canada.
Now, with well over 40 years of traffic courtroom experience and more than 500,000 traffic tickets managed throughout North America, Randall Boyd Hicks remains the most experienced traffic court advocate in all of Western Canada. He specializes in defending charges arising from motor vehicle collisions, winning 12 of 13 fatality car accident cases, but the mainstay of business has been defending everyday traffic tickets. Since Calgary is the most heavily enforced jurisdiction in North America (well over half a million tickets handed out in 2014) Randall continues to be busier than ever!
Randall Hicks is responsible for the world’s only successful mechanical defense to photo radar camera technology. The landmark defeat of the Multanova Photo Radar in 1990 means the Calgary Police Service uses photo radar cameras at only half the capacity the manufacturer says they're capable of. He proved the photo radar cameras do not accurately photograph violators EVERY time. They will "from time to time photograph the wrong vehicle" (from trial judge Bernard Laven). That's millions of dollars none of us are paying to the province!
A highly principled businessman, with an unshakeable commitment to ethical business practices, Randall Hicks has evolved into a national watchdog for police enforcement mandates across Canada. The media routinely ask for comment on a wide variety of police enforcement initiatives. He’s amassed a wealth of media contacts and has cultivated relationships with heads of several significant insurance companies and other large corporations. He maintains an excellent rapport with members of many provincial and municipal governments throughout Canada and the United States. Randall is a voluntary adherent to the Rules of Conduct set out by the Law Society of Alberta and his clients retain him knowing they are represented by a consummate professional.
Randall Hicks is NOT a scoff-law. He is an ardent supporter of meaningful traffic enforcement intended to make our roadways safer… but that damned “cash cow” photo radar does nothing but fill the city coffers.
Trustworthy. Honorable. Unshakeable Integrity and Performance.
"Always in your court"™.
