We come to the part where Elly is horror-struck because Pervrett's dad obviously impressed upon his long-haired idjit son the advantage of at least dressing as if he had a brain in his head.

Panel 1: A little while later, we find Elly telling Connie that having looked around the courtroom, she has come to the conclusion that the other driver isn't there. Since Connie has never met this person, she asks for a description.

Panel 2: I flash back to her coming with an inch of wetting her pants in sheer horror because Mike wanted to dress up as a punk rocker for Halloween when she gets all frightened as she describes the man as being greasy, unshaven, having long hair and wearing a leather jacket before summing him up as biker trash with probably a skull tattooed somewhere.

In short, he is tailor made to frighten a timid, ignorant woman who thinks that people who dress in a way that scares her are either bad people who want to scare her and destroy society or people reacting to a traumatic childhood. No one is allowed to dress like that because they simply like it lest Elly stand revealed as the panicky doughhead she is.

Panel 3: When they call for the man (a Mr Pervrett), he astonishes Elly by announcing his presence. She reacts by saying "That's him!!" because she wonders if maybe he beamed in from Let's Kill Suburban Housewives And Torch Libraries Land.

Panel 4: When he approaches the stand with his hair cut just so, his beard shaved off and his biker leathers replaced with a business suit, Connie tells Elly that she thinks they're in trouble.

Summary: If so, it's the same trouble Elly is always in: she's too stupid to anticipate something amazingly obvious and foreseeable like "legal counsel advising his client that he shouldn't actually look like a total fucking greaseball if he wants to be taken seriously."

Useful Notes: The Ontario Traffic Courts.

In order to clarify where Lynn is in error, here's a link to a guide by the Province about what to expect.

The passages that stick out like a sore thumb are:

This Guide does not provide legal advice.

You are strongly urged to get legal advice from a lawyer or paralegal about your legal options and the possible penalties you could face.

In deciding whether or not to obtain legal advice, especially if you plan to represent yourself, consider:
  • the charge you are facing,
  • the complexity of the case,
  • your understanding of the legal process and the issues,

and
  • the risk of a substantial fine, jail time or other penalty that would have significant personal impact (for example, driving demerit points, driver’s licence suspension).


and

Prosecutor (sometimes called “the Crown”): The prosecutor is the person with the authority to prosecute the offence. It is the prosecutor’s responsibility to prove that you committed the offence with which you are charged.

This means that, yeah, they do have a prosecutor whose job would have been to state the Crown's case against JUST Elly.

Also, here's something about the demerit point system applicable in Ontario. Since the charge against Elly is making an improper left turn, she'd be slapped with two demerit points, be fined fifty bucks and get a warning letter from the province. Since she's Elly Patterson, she'd react as if they called her a hardened criminal.
