DRIVING INFRACTIONS, TICKETS AND PENALTIES?
The penalty you incur for a driving infraction depends on the type of traffic ticket you receive. Tickets are typically divided into three classifications: minor, major and serious convictions, which include criminal acts. All ticket classifications, regardless of the fine or possible demerit points, can affect your insurance rate.
Minor Convictions include Speeding, Disobey Stop Sign, Unsafe Lane Change, Turn Not In Safety, Seatbelt, etc.
Major Convictions include Careless Driving, Distracted Driving, Fail To Report An Accident, Speeding in a School Zone, Speeding in a Construction Zone, Passing a School Bus, Suspended Driver’s Licence, etc.
Serious/Criminal Convictions include Stunt/Racing/Excessive Speeding over 50km/hr above posted speed limit, Fail To Remain At The Scene Of An Accident, DUI, Driving Uninsured, etc.
WHY SHOULD I FIGHT MY TRAFFIC TICKET?
In Ontario, any moving violation will stay on your driving record for a period of three years from the conviction date not the offence date.
If you pay a Traffic Ticket, you are pleading guilty and are automatically convicted – and that conviction appears on your driving record. When insurance companies set your rates, they look at the number of convictions you’ve had in the past three years – not the number of demerits. “Convictions are categorized as minor, major and serious – minor includes following too closely and speeding,” says Pete Karageorgos, director of consumer and industry relations with the Insurance Bureau of Canada. “Speeding 50 km/h over the posted limit is a serious conviction as is impaired driving.”
What People Are Saying About POINTTS™
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“…POINTTS™, Belleville was the first place I had brought my traffic ticket, and I am grateful I did not think twice. I followed their direction towards my case and it fell precisely how they predicted. I was granted an appeal, and my charges were dropped. I would highly recommend to anyone with a traffic ticket to be consulted by their fantastic agents before taking action on their own.”
I would just like to say thank you very much for your service! When I called around for advice my Pointts representative was the first company that actually talked to me like I was a human being, and that made everything so much easier. I didn’t have to miss any time working to attend court and deal with this matter and the outcome was better than I could have hoped for! I was kept up to date throughout the process and it was no longer a complicated experience. I will be highly recommending your service to any friends and family who have traffic ticket issues in the future!
Thank you again!
