Hi all.

I got hit for speeding on a 80 going 133.
The police officer lowered it to 129 so that I only had to may the 350 after taxes and told me if I fought it he would put it up to stunt driving.

My main question is that I heard there is a new law that if you get 4 demerits speeding you lose your lisence for 30 days.

This law came in affect with that no one under 21 can have over a 0% blood alchohol level.

Can anyone confirm if this is the case? I was not told by the officer I would be suspended but I am not sure if I will get a mail or not telling me I am..

Thank you

Zero Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) for Novice and Young Drivers 21 and Under.
Effective August 1, 2010, both novice drivers of any age and all drivers 21 and under, regardless of licence class, must have a blood alcohol level of zero when operating a motor vehicle.

If you are a novice driver and are caught with any amount of alcohol in your blood, you will receive an immediate 24-hour roadside driver licence suspension. If convicted, will be subject to a fine from $60-$500 and will receive a suspension period as per the Novice Driver Escalating Sanction scheme, up to and including cancellation of the novice licence. You will also have to return to the start of GLS.

If you are a fully licensed driver who is 21 and under and you are caught with alcohol in your blood, you will receive a 24-hour roadside driver licence suspension. If convicted, you will be subject to a fine of $60-$500 and a 30-day licence suspension.

Escalating Sanctions for all Novice Drivers (G1, G2, M1, M2)
Effective August 1, 2010, novice or hybrid drivers (drivers that hold a novice licence and full licence, e.g., G/M2) will be subject to Novice Driver Escalating Sanctions. These sanctions will apply if, within a five year period, you:

•are convicted of violating any of the graduated licensing conditions;
•are convicted of HTA offences that result in 4 or more demerit points; or,
•receive a court-ordered suspension for an HTA offence that would have resulted in 4 or more demerit points

he Novice Driver Escalating Sanctions are as follows:

•30-day licence suspension for the first occurrence;
•90-day licence suspension for the second occurrence; and
•Novice licence cancellation for the third occurrence. Upon a third occurrence, your novice driver’s licence will be cancelled and any time discount earned, time credited or fees paid would be forfeited. You must re-apply to the graduated licensing program by passing a vision and knowledge test and paying all licensing fees. After you pass these tests, you will enter Level One and get a Class G1 licence. You must serve all the Level One and Level Two waiting periods and start as a new driver. You would need to take a beginner driver education course to qualify for a time discount.

It looks to me that you are right. You might want to talk to a paralegal on this one.

You should speak to a paralegal to assist you with this case. You may also attempt to get your G licence by trial time.
