The cop gave me a yellow speeding ticket with a set fine of 203$ however told me my insurance will not be affected and i will not get any points.
Also he checked off RADAR/LASER
Do i have to pay this ticket,? and is he correct will it not show on my insurance and pooints?
All the provinces have a reciprocal agreement. Speeding is a conviction that will follow you back to Ontario and have demerit points applied according to the penalties here in this province (4 points). Whether or not it your insurance company chooses to increase your rates is up to them, but they can certainly do so. To answer your question, no, the officer is not correct. You will receive points and are at risk for an insurance increase.Shift9 wrote:Do i have to pay this ticket,? and is he correct will it not show on my insurance and pooints?
from reading various posts, ive heard about this reciprocal agreement, yet many have said it rarely proceeds where info is actually shared , in compariosn to MTL/ ONT where the sharing of info occurs more often.
(guess i'm just hoping nothing happens )
I do not know about Alberta but as an example I have seen Sask residents with warrants for Dogs at large..Etc.
And no you will not be arrested in Ontario and sent back to Alberta if there is a traffic warrant for you. ( can never say never as there are extreme circumstances) But the warrants never go away and if your back in Alberta and get stopped you will be arrested which means a night in jail and before a judge in the morning. I think the Oldest warrant I have actioned was from 1992.
what are your thoughts about insurance and points?
I have a clean record this would be my first
Demerit points will be applied based on what the offence would carry in Ontario (3 points). You may be sent a warning letter from the MTO, but there is no associated suspension or other penalty.
