Stiff Penalties for Racing and Stunt Driving In Ontario Canada!

Ontario Canada is getting tough on racing and stunt driving on their streets and highways by implementing stiffer penalties for these offenders. If someone is caught racing or stunt driving in Ontario, their vehicle is immediately impounded with a seven day license suspension also effective immediately.
Losing your vehicle or your license is not the only things stunt driving and/or racing in the streets of Ontario will get you. You will also be subject to a $10,000 fine which is an increase from the nominal $1000 fine that was previously imposed on stunt driving and/or racing. And the minimum fine for conviction is $2000; therefore street racing and/or stunt driving can be a costly decision if you’re caught and ticketed.

Furthermore, your insurance premiums will skyrocket up to a whopping 100% rate increase for the next three years, that is, if any insurance company will accept you and your car for insurance after having a conviction for stunt driving and/or racing.

In addition to the immediate seven-day suspension of your driver's license, if convicted of street racing and/or stunt driving a second time your license could be suspended for up to a maximum of 10 years.

Stunt driving and/or racing in the streets of Ontario Canada is also a danger to yourself and to others around you. This type of careless and reckless operation of a motor vehicle can not only get you ticketed and fine, see the loss of your car and your license, but it could also see the loss of a life, if not yours someone else's and that is something no one wants to live with.

If you receive a ticket for street racing and/or stunt driving, it is in your best interest to obtain legal representation because there are many consequences to pleading guilty for a street racing and/or stunt driving ticket. Legal representation will be able to decide if there is enough evidence against you to convict you or if the prosecutor may be able to plead your case down to a lesser charge in order to save your license so you can get back and forth to work in addition to saving you money you may not have.
