Here is clarification from the MTO site:
Demerit Points for Out-of-Province Convictions
Drivers convicted of a driving related offence in the State of New York, the State of Michigan or any Canadian province or territory, will have home jurisdictional penalties such as demerit points and/or suspensions applied to their Ontario driver record as if the offence occurred in Ontario.
Examples of out-of-province convictions where Ontario demerit points and /or suspensions will be applied include:
- Fail to obey stop sign
- Fail to obey signal light
- Fail to stop for school bus
- Fail to remain or return to the scene of a collision
- Careless driving
- Motor manslaughter
- Criminal negligence
- Dangerous driving
- Failure to remain at scene of a collision
- Impaired Driving
- Driving while disqualified or prohibited
So can Ontario Canadian's get Demerit Points for Out of Province Offences?
Can Ontario Canadian's get Demerit Points for Out of Province Offences while driving in the United States?
Yes! However, only TWO states can apply Demerit Points towards your Ontario Drivers License. The State of New York, and the State of Michigan.
