I have made a very similar careless mistake as the young man in this post - http://www.ontariohighwaytrafficact.com/topic3580.html - i have passed three cars and in the process got caught speeding at 160 kmh. I totally understand passing is no exception to speed, i was being careless. I was talking with the cop and i didnt manage to get much information off of him.... Im only 16. What are my options, and what penalties am i likely to receive? Right now my car is impounded my licence is suspended for 7 days. It will be convenient if i can get back on the road driving ASAP how am i able to do this?
How is it everyone else's fault YOU comitted an offence?
Yes a g2, i believe i have had it for less than 6monthsbend wrote:What license class do you hold? Sounds like a G2, correct?
In terms of consequences, the normal fine for 80 over would be a $780, but the Crown may ask for more. Furthermore, as a G2 driver youll face a mandatory 30 day suspension once youre convicted.
Insurance will also be very problematic. Once you have a suspension on your record and a major conviction (50+ over) many providers will refuse to insure you. Those that are willing to insure you, will probably charge double or triple what youre currently paying.
Representation can be expensive, but considering how serious your charges are, it might be worth hiring someone to defend you.
