Hi,
I thought I read somewhere the fines for Provincial offences were going up. Any info on this or is it just a rumor?
Thanks!
Cruz.

Set fines are not changing. However, maximum penalties are changing.

- Careless Driving will be max $2000 fine, up from $1000
- Failure to remain at scene will be max $2000 fine, up from $1000
- Red light - fail to stop will be max $1000 fine, up from $500
- Fail to give way to an emergency vehicle will go to a max penalty of $2000 and 2 year licence suspension (FINALLY), up from current max penalty of $500
- Driver fail to wear seatbelt assembly or fail to ensure passenger under 16 is wearing a seat belt will go to a max fine of $1000, up from $500

Also: Subsequent offences for failure to stop/give way to an emergency vehicle results in a maximum fine of $4000, two-year licence suspension, and the possibility of up to 6 months in jail.

So unless someone receives a summons where the JP sets the fine, it will remain the same.

a few set fines have went up. The ones I remember are..

Careless Driving: from $265 to $400 plus surcharge = $490
Seatbelt: from $85 to $200 plus surcharge = $240
Fail to stop vehicle on right for police: from $85 to $400 plus surcharge = $490
Fail to pull to stop for approaching emergency vehicle (police, fire, EMS): from $85 to $400 plus surcharge = $490

Effective Jan. 1, various fines will be doubling, tripling or even quadrupling, the OPP says.

The fine for driving without a seatbelt and child seat violations will now cost $240 instead of $110.

Red light violations will now set a driver back $325 instead of $110, or $490 instead of $110 in a Community Safety Zone.

Tickets for failing to stop for an emergency vehicle are increasing the most – from $110 to $490.
