Driving While Disqualified

Unread post by jeepguy2500 on

This is a complicated case that I'm sure one day will wind up as a case study in a text book at Osgoode Law.

On July 15, 2012, I pleaded guilty to a DUI and was given a one year driving prohibition.

On July 28, 2012, I was driving to a work appointment and ended up getting stopped and issued a Driving While Disqualified ticket.

On August 10, 2012, I again was pulled over for driving while disqualified.

On September 27, 2012, I plead guilty to the 2 counts of Driving While Disqualified, and received a 3 Year Driving Prohibition.

I'm not here to plead innocence, what I did was wrong and stupid. What I am looking for is opinion on interpretation of the HTA in accordance with Federal Law. The MTO is stating my license is suspended until September 27, 2017. The time line on my suspensions, from the MTO, should be:

July 15, 2012 to July 15, 2013 - 1 year suspension DUI
July 15, 2013 to July 15, 2014 - 1 year suspension Drive While Disqualified
July 15, 2014 to July 15, 2016 - 2 year suspension Drive While Disqualified

Any interpretation of the HTA and or similar cases would be of great help. Is there a disconnect of the Federal Driving Prohibition and the Administrative Suspension the HTA initiates as mandatory suspensions for these convictions?
