I recently had an early resolution meeting for a disobey signs ticket which was lowered to "Park or Stand on Highway" which carries no demerit points. They told me this was a non moving violation however I would like to confirm it. I have looked on the web but cannot find this charge. Can someone please advise if this is correct? I want to make sure this will not affect my insurance rate.

Was the charge you plead to under the Highway Traffic Act or a local bylaw? There’s a charge for parking on the highway under section 170 of the H.T.A., but there’s also typically bylaws that would cover the same offence.

The reason I ask is that insurance companies treat all Highway Traffic Act convictions the same, regardless if they’re a so called “moving violation” or not. Demerit points are essentially irrelevant to your provider. Some providers/policies will overlook your first conviction; some may slightly increase your rates.

My guess is that you plead to an HTA offence, hence a rate increase is possible.

Sounds like you plead to a Toronto by-law, to me.

what jurisdiction is the offence?

That's the annoying thing, they didn't say whether it was under HTA or a bylaw. My guess is that it was HTA and they dropped the demerit points but I really don't know how all that works. This is my first ticket conviction.

Interesting, do we know if section 170 usually charged against the owner or the driver of the vehicle?
