Re: Seeking Advice with Stunt Driving Charge / Screening

Would accepting this plea only be a 49 over charge (minor speeding/section 128) with the said fine + points and nothing else? I just wanted to try to clarify before accepting it. If the offer is 49, it will be treated no different than as if you were pulled over for 49km over. If you're a fully lic...

Re: 3 Day License Suspension for Warn Range Ontario

It will not show up on a criminal record. You should have no issues with future jobs.

It will show up on your driving abstract as an administrative suspension. However, the reason for the suspension will not be listed.

Officers will also probably be aware of the offense if they pull up your name.

Re: exceeding the limit by 42km/h on a 3 lane busy hwy with a police car mobile in collectors lane

I would certainly like to know how OPP radars work in a heavy traffic area with 3 lanes. The officer doesnt have eyes behind his head and it would surely take a highly skilled person to press and lock in a targeted speed and making sure that it was that vehicle travelling at the excess speed. I thi...

Re: Non-Ontarian Licenses suspended in the Martimes and moved to Ontario

All provinces are apart of the Canadian Driver License Compact, which shares driving information across the country.

No province should issue you a license if you're suspended in another province.

You should probably contact your home province about the status of your license.

If you have a license from another province (full license, not learners) for more than 2 years, you can exchange it for a full Ontario license. This means you will skip the graduated license program and receive a license after an eye exam. However, the license needs to be valid . You cannot exchange...

Keep in mind this isn't going to be a Highway Traffic Act issue. The province only recently started regulating the tow industry. It's under the Consumer Protection Act. It's not very thorough and the rules are basic meant for protecting people who are vulnerable after an accident. It's not going to ...

Failure to provide proof of insurance will indeed raise your rates if your provider chooses to do so. It falls into the minor bracket, meaning it's treated no different than your average speeding ticket or most tickets your average driver will encounter while driving. The key thing point here is you...

Your options are on your ticket. Are you looking to go through the trial process? Are you looking for an early resolution? Note, your ticket was already reduced to a no demerit bracket from a 3 point bracket. You're likely not to get any further reduction. Are you a fully licensed driver? If so, the...

Either pay it or don't pay it at this point. The time for defending this charge was 11 years ago. I don't know how you go about reopening a 11 year old ticket, but you usually have a limited amount of days (15) to file after you learn about a conviction (example: You filed for a trial, never heard b...

There was a similar thread here a couple days ago. You can find your answers and more here . Your answers were also in the old thread you bumped up here .

If she was reported by the the bus driver or witness, would she get a ticket in the mail or would the officer show up at her door? They would show up to the address of the registered owner. How long before receiving a ticket ? Anywhere up to 6 months. Also, would demerit points be involved ? No, be...

There is no answer. Every courthouse is different. It depends on scheduling. Expect to wait at least a month and beyond. There isn't much to worry about. Red light camera tickets are glorified parking tickets. You pay them and forget about them. Expect to receive a deal where your fine is reduced. M...

Ontario has a zero tolerance when it comes to alcohol for what would be considered a novice driver. That means you have to blow a zero.
