Bicycles and Drivers' Licences

Unread post by Traffic Jammer on

Can your drivers license be suspended for not paying a ticket on time which was gotten while riding a bicycle? If it has been what does one quote of the act to have it reinstated without incurring the extra cost?

I am not sure is if non-payment of a bicycle ticket leads to a license suspension. MTO will suspend a license if a traffic ticket (i.e. speeding) is unpaid. What were you convicted of?

Also is your question about not paying the ticket or not paying it on time? If you are stopped on a bicycle, you don't have to show your driver's license, just identify yourself. If you did show the license then the ticket is connected to that. If you don't pay the fine, you won't be allowed to renew your license/plates until you pay it.

So pay the fine and everything will be, pardon the pun, fine. Also bicycle tickets don't carry demerit points, unless you are ticketed in Toronto. They always screw that up. Make sure that no demerit points were added to your driving record.

Near as I can tell the act of suspending a driver's license for something not done while driving seems more than a bit off no? Despite the LEO insisting on my DL as ID, and then screwing me.... THAT is my issue as the DL has NOTHING to do with the infraction... I advanced on a green on my bicycle, and simply haven't had the coin to pay the fine yet. Two months later no DL.
