Frequently Asked Questions

We provide our clients with the best defence for all traffic tickets. Avoid hefty fines, demerit points, licence suspension and increased insurance premiums

Why Fight Traffic Ticket?

Paying a fine and pleading guilty to a traffic ticket can have many more consequences than a hefty fine amount. Most traffic tickets have demerit points and as little as one conviction can increase your insurance rates.

I have just received a traffic ticket - What do I do?

First and foremost, understand the charge you are facing and the potential penalties and consequences. Some charges may carry mandatory licence suspensions or may affect your insurance status and/or premiums. It is important to review all options before deciding what to do.
Our Paralegals are licensed by the Law Society of Upper Canada. Our offices offer a FREE Consultation whereby you can choose to meet with a representative in person, email the traffic ticket, text the traffic ticket or discuss your matter by telephone. We offer flexible days and times to discuss your matter with you and there is never any obligation to move forward with our services. We are here to provide professional, affordable and competent legal representation in Provincial Offences Court and want only the best outcome possible for our clients. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.

How long before I respond to the court?

The Provincial Offences Act requires a person charged to respond within 15 days of being served with the traffic ticket. Any time beyond that and you may be convicted without a hearing as being deemed not to dispute the charge on your traffic violation ticket. Consultations with one of our representatives can be done during or outside of normal business hours. You’re busy and we get that. We’ll schedule a time most convenient for you so you can get the answers you need right away. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.

Why should I fight my traffic ticket?

There could be consequences to a conviction of which you may not be aware.
You could be putting unnecessary demerit points on your license.

  1. Your insurance rates could go up.
  2. Not everyone is guilty as charged.
  3. Police officers are human. They can sometimes make mistakes.
  4. Before doing anything, you should see a POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegal for an expert evaluation of your situation.
  5. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.
Can I fight my own traffic ticket?

Absolutely NOT.  Are you well versed with the Highway Traffic Act?
You can prepare a list of questions for the officer when defending yourself but how do you know that the response you receive is correct and how do you proceed from there?

POINTTS™ has the resources to fight your ticket on your behalf. You may be required to attend court as well as you would be the only person that can tell the court what happened from your perspective. It may equally be possible that, depending on the charge, you would not have to go to court. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.

Will a ticket in another province affect my licence in Ontario?

Reciprocal Agreement with Ontario so treat the rest of Canada like your own backyard for moving violations, remember that New York and Michigan will cost you the same demerits as you’d get back home, and that 41 states will be relaying that speeding ticket information back to your insurance company. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.

What happens if I don't do anything after I get the ticket?

Once 30 days has passed, the charge will be placed on a Fail to Respond docket and a Justice of the Peace will review the offence notice and may convict you in absentia. Once you have been convicted it is too late to choose any of the options indicated on the back of your ticket. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.

What happens if I don't pay the fine?

If a fine is not paid within the time period provided by the court, additional costs are imposed and the amount may be forwarded to a collection agency or a request may be made by the court to the Ministry of Transportation to have your licence suspended.
If, after a licence is suspended the fine is paid, an additional fee is payable to the Ministry of Transportation to reinstate the licence. Before this happens, call one of our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals to discuss your matter. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.

How do demerit points affect my drivers license?

As a Class G1, G2, M1 or M2 driver in Ontario, if you get two or more demerit points as a result of receiving a traffic ticket in Ontario, you will be sent a warning letter. At six demerit points, you may have to go to an interview to discuss your driving record. If you don’t attend, your license may be suspended. At nine demerit points, your license will be suspended for 60 days. After the suspension, the number of demerit points on your record will be reduced to four. Any additional points could again bring you to the interview level. If you reach nine demerit points again, your license can be suspended for six months. Before this happens, call one of our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals to discuss your matter. Call us at 1-888-787-0260 and our POINTTS™ Licensed Paralegals will provide you with a Free Consultation.
