Who Sets the Fine for Speeding?

Although the Highway Traffic Act states different amounts, police officers are required to issue traffic tickets with the proper fines, set by the Chief Justice of Ontario.



Penalties for Demerit Points

Demerit points stay on your record for two years from the offence date. If you collect enough points, you can lose your driver’s licence.

When your licence is suspended, you will get a letter from the Ministry of Transportation. It will tell you the date your suspension takes effect and that you need to surrender your licence.

If you do not surrender your licence, you can lose your licence for up to two years.
