Unpaid bicycle fines and licence supension

Unread post by orillia3 on

I am trying to find out where it is written that unpaid fines will result in a suspended licence. I am familiar with the HTA but not the section regarding unpaid fines suspending your drivers licence. The main HTA body states a permit will not be renewed, I assume that is for the licence plate, legislation about unpaid fines must be elsewhere.

The question has arisen, if you have unpaid fines from a HTA infraction on a bicycle, does the same rules apply and you can have your drivers licence suspended? I add my own question would this affect your permit sticker renewal for your plates as well? This was prompted by a statement of a Toronto official that it can happen, but is done by the Ministry of Transport (or whatever it is called now) in this article.

Section 46 deals with suspensions due to default fines. Your licence can be suspended for any outstanding Highway Traffic Act fine, regardless if the offence occurred on a bicycle or not.
