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 youÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢ll face a mandatory 30 day suspension once youÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢re 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 youÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢re currently paying.
Representation can be expensive, but considering how serious your charges are, it might be worth hiring someone to defend you.
