I was recently charged with speeding in a provincial park zone. The officer told me that it dosent matter how fast I was going in a provincial park, since the fine is exactly the same ($100), and it comes with no demerit points. Just want to know if what i was told is true. Thanks.
Section: H.T.A. section 2(c)
1) Provincial Parks Act. Something like... greater than the posted speed limit with a set fine and no points....does not matter how far over the limit a person is (sounds like the offence you received)
2) Highway Traffic Act. Normal speeding fines and demerit points.
Above is merely a suggestion/thought and in no way constitutes legal advice or views of my employer. www.OHTA.ca
The offence says "Speeding - Provincial Park - More than 40km/h", and the reference is to the H.T.A. Reg 620 2(c) which is the provincial park speeding regulations. Just the fine it is then.
Thank you for your help.
Insurance companies do not care about demerit points. They are completely irrelevant to whether your insurance goes up or not.
