Can an off duty police officer who saw you speeding or driving recklessly have a ticket issued to you well after the act was observed based on him noting your license plate in Ontario?

Basically a police officer in the province of Ontario has 30 days to issue you a regular Provincial Offences Act ticket.

As long as he can identify the driver, he would note the license plate and go to the address that the plate is registered to and serve that person with the ticket.
