So you were pulled over by an officer for speeding, are you guilty? do you just pay the fine and go about your life? What is your defence? What are your next steps?
Do not pay the ticket until you fully understand the implications of the ticket. Speeding tickets go much deeper than just a fine to the Ministry of Transportation. Even a ticket of 5 km/h over the speed limit can affect your insurance rates more than you may be aware. If you accumulate 6 demerit points, the Ministry of Transportation can suspend your licence.
BE AWARE OF ALL THE IMPLICATIONS OF A SPEEDING TICKET!
- Speeding tickets over 15km/h have demerit points attached to them
- If you accumulated too many points, the Ministry of Transportation can call you in for an interview, or immediately suspend your licence for 30 days to six months.
- Your insurance company may deem you a ‘high risk’ driver, dramatically increasing your insurance rates.
