Fighting the ticket would probably involve a lot of headaches, travelling, etc. If you pay it, it basically goes away.
Guess I learned something new today....I have seen all the others mentioned on a DL history.Radar Identified wrote: Only tickets from New York, Michigan and other Canadian provinces/territories will show up on your Ontario driver abstract. .
Really? I was under the impression that of the US states, only NY and Michigan reported the infraction to Ontario unless the driver didn't pay the ticket, because of this:hwybear wrote:I have seen all the others mentioned on a DL history.
That came from the MTO website.Demerit points for Out-of-Province Convictions
Drivers convicted of a driving related offence in the State of New York, the State of Michigan or any Canadian province or territory, will have home jurisdictional penalties such as demerit points and/or suspensions applied to their Ontario driver record as if the offence occurred in Ontario.

I knew about the reciprocity for non-payment with the other states but didn't think they bothered reporting it to Ontario if they got their money. Funny that they'd only apply demerit points if the offence occurred in NY or Michigan but would still slap the offence on the driver abstract if it occurred in the other states... why not also apply points?
Sorry, that was poor wording on my part.....I have seen NY, Michigan and all C'dn provinces on a DL history...nothing elseRadar Identified wrote:Really?
