So 55 x $9.75 = $536.25, then you add the victim surcharge of $125.00 and $5 in Court costs. So the minimum total fine will be $666.25. The Court can also impose a 30 day licence suspension on your first conviction.
I can pretty much guarantee you will not get any type of fine reduction after the break you were already given in regards to stunt driving.
Are there any programs offered in ontario for driving courses etc that would reduce the number of points on my license? I know they have that in Alberta, not sure if its here too?
The Crown will probably consider the fact you weren't charged with stunt driving as a serious break. I wouldn't expect much in the way of any further reduction (maybe a plea to 49 over?). As to why the officer gave you such a break, itÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s anyoneÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s guess. The way the HTA reads police are pretty much required to seize your licence and impound your vehicle if youÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢re caught going 50+. It's the first I've heard of an officer actually proceeding with a 50+ over charge without laying the stunt driving.
There are no diversions programmes in Ontario for H.T.A. offences.
