A brief Overview

Speeding Violation

The Highway Traffic Act creates Ontario Traffic tickets, which are considered Provincial offenses. Traffic tickets in Ontario lead to a monetary fine and, depending on the type of ticket, demerit points by The Ministry of Transportation.

The following are examples of hidden consequences related to traffic and speeding tickets that the police and courts are not obligated to reveal to you:

In addition to a fine, traffic tickets carry other consequences that may follow you for years. If you pay the ticket, it will appear on your insurance and driving record for three (3) years.



Speeding Fines and Penalties

Fines for speeding in Ontario are not set at a flat rate. Rather, they incrementally increase depending on how much you exceed the speed limit. For speeds 1-19 km/h over the limit, fines are set at $3 per km. This escalates to $4.5 per km for 20-29 km/h over, $7 per km for 30-49 km/h over, and a staggering $9.75 per km for 50 km/h or more over the speed limit. Remember, these speeding fines and penalties do not include court costs and fees.

The fines in community safety zones and construction zones with workers present are doubled.

TIPS & TRICKS

How to Fight a Speeding Ticket?

Generally; For anyone hoping to lower their chances of receiving the maximum fines and demerit points in court, hire a skilled paralegal for tickets is usually the best course of action.

Keep the following points in mind:

  • -Every situation is unique. Therefore, you cannot base your defense and strategy that your friend's speeding attorney or paralegal employed to assist them When it comes to administrative work, the actual procedure is basically the same, but the real magic lies in applying the best strategy or approach for each unique circumstance.
  • -In most cases, a ticket option must be filed with the court within 15 days of the incident. In order to request a meeting with the prosecutor or a trial date
    -Many people assume that by attending the trial, their speeding ticket will automatically be dismissed, thereby reducing their demerit points. However, once a police officer arrives in court, prosecutors are required to proceed with the trial, and contesting a speeding ticket may have unfavorable consequences for your future driving record.
    -You should request or obtain the police officer's evidence that will be used in court to prove your guilt of speeding before your early meeting with the prosecutor. 
Step 1

File a traffic ticket with the appropriate court to set up a  Trial Date or meeting with a prosecutor to discuss a possible reduction of your speeding ticket to a lower reduced speed, resulting in fewer or no demerit points. Keep in mind that fighting a speeding ticket requires at least 2-3 court appearances, which for most people means taking time off from work. However, as previously stated, you can retain the services of a legal professional who can represent you in court.

Step 2

Show up at trial. Prepare to be questioned about every detail from the day you were caught speeding. Also, be prepared to ask the police officer questions about relevant facts about your speeding ticket that will allow you to draw conclusions proving that the events in your case may have been different than what the officer suggests.

Defences for Speeding

There are just two options for defending against an absolute liability offense like receiving a speeding ticket. However, be aware that each of these justifications must meet a very high standard of proof. They are as follows:


1. “A dark car was following me through a dark alley, and I felt like my life was in danger.”


2 – The only way to increase someone’s chances of survival was to break the law and move quickly, since you were the only one who could have potentially saved their life. You must have felt that since you were saving someone else’s life, violating the speed limit was far more important than actually breaking the law.

e only person who could have potentially saved a person’s life and there were no other alternatives but to break the law and speed to maximize their chances of survival. The importance of breaking the speeding law must have been far greater than the actual act of speeding because you helped to save another person’s life.
Hiring a lawyer to fight a speeding ticket, might be an investment that will be repaid a hundredfold in the future (both time and money).

Remember, courts have heard it all: “I was speeding because I needed to use the restroom and had a sick stomach” or “I was assisting in driving a sick friend to the hospital.”

DEMERIT POINT

DEMERIT POINT

Overview

Demerit points are applied only after the ticket is paid to the drivers license or insurance

The Demerit Point System in Ontario is a way for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to monitor your driving. All individuals who drive a vehicle in Ontario are subject to this system only when they are convicted of an offence under the Highway Traffic Act. The system is in place to encourage drivers to continue to improve their driving ability and ensure that drivers in Ontario are not abusing their privilege to drive.

Demerit points are added (not lost), if you are found guilty of a traffic ticket offence. The amount of points you gain vary per charge. If you obtain too many demerit points, there is a possibility you could lose your licence.

You start with zero (0) points and go up to fifteen (15). A demerit point will stay on your record for a maximum of two (2) years from the offence date. Once two (2) years has passed, they will automatically be removed from your record.

Don’t assume that if the demerit points are not written on the ticket, there are no points associated with the charge. Police officers and the courts are not affiliated with the The Ministry of Transportation and therefore are not required to tell you or write on the ticket how many demerit points are associated with that charge.

If you receive a ticket in:
1. Other Canadian Provinces and Territories.
2. The State of New York.
3. The State of Michigan.
Demerit points can be assessed to your licence.
