Hello all:

I was pulled over last night (around 2am) for driving 87k on a 60k road. It was really late and there were only 2 other cars on the road. The officer only asked for my documentation and did not give me an opportunity to talk about the ticket or "explain myself" to him. He simply said to file for option 2 or go to court.

The ticket I got is a fine with 3 demerit points. Normally if it is just a fine, I would be okay with it. But considering that I got my full license last year, I think having demerit points would increase my premium.

Another question I have is: if a company does a background check, would speeding show up on the records? I was not able to get a solid answer from browsing the this and other forums, and it would be really frustrating if it's true since I'm graduating this year and entering the job market in a month or two.

What should I do in this case? Should I take the case to court and ask for disclosure to see if I have a case?

It is my first traffic ticket and I'm still overwhelmed and don't know what to do.

Thanks a lot

All convictions show up on your record, regardless of demerit points.

If you go to Court or request a pre trial resolution, the Crown will probably offer you a plea deal to a lower speed.

In that case, is it possible to negotiate a deal with higher fines but getting rid of the record?

Also when you say it will be on my record just because it is a conviction. What level would it show up on my a criminal record check?

No, the only way to avoid a record is to be found not guilty or have the charged withdrawn.

A speeding conviction would not show up on a criminal background check since it’s not a criminal offence. Speeding convictions show on your driving abstract, which is what insurance companies look at.
