Licence suspension for non payment of bicycle fines?

Section 47 of the HTA says your licence will be suspended for non-payment of fines.

If you have a drivers licence, will your licence be suspended for fines received riding a bicycle and not paid?. Does this include all fines, including municipal bylaw fines and HTA fines.

One woman told me her young son got a ticket for a bicycle offence, did not tell her and did not pay the fine. She was told they issued a temporary licence to her son, then suspended it. Will this suspended licence now hang around until the son goes to get a real drivers licence, and have to get the temporary licence un-suspended with the $145 payment (as well as the fine).

Is there any consequence for not paying bicycle fines if one does not need or intends to get a drivers licence, surely there must be additional measure to collect the bicycle infraction fines other that suspending a drivers licence.

Section 46 is actually the section you should be looking at for suspension of a drivers licence for non-payment of a fine.
And yes. It does apply to fines received while driving a bicycle. This includes convictions under the HTA and any act listed in the schedule to this section.
If convicted of an HTA offence and the person does not hold a licence, the MTO will create a drivers licence number for that person and then suspend it until the fine and reinstatement fee is paid.
Unpaid parking tickets issued under a by-law must be paid before a licence plate is renewed.

I believe that other unpaid fines that don't result in a suspension may be forwarded to a collection agency at some point and may affect a persons credit rating.

Not only that, but some municipalities are recovering traffic fines through property taxes

Thankyou.

Just to clarify is the licence suspension also for unpaid municipal bylaw fines, for example riding your bicycle on the sidewalk which is a municipal bylaw offence; or is licence suspension only for HTA offences while on a bicycle, for example disobeying a stop sign, which is an HTA offence?
