Bill 126, Road Safety Act, 2009 increased penalties for several offences:
The fine for not complying with the Act or regulations respecting seat belts under section 106 is increased from $60 to $500 (the general penalty under section 214 of the Act) to $200 to $1,000.
The fine for careless driving under section 130 is increased from $200 to $1,000 to $400 to $2,000.
The fine for not stopping on a red light under sections 144 and 146 is increased from $150 to $500 to $200 to $1,000.
The fine for not complying with section 200 (remain or return to scene of accident, provide assistance) is increased from $200 to $1,000 to $400 to $2,000.
These are the statutory amounts. I suspect the set fine amounts will be amended at some point as well. During this transition we have to be careful telling people their set fines might be incorrect. Conversely, there may be an increase in the number of incorrect set fines as police forces learn of the new amounts.
I'll try and monitor it but if anyone gets info, please post.
