Please be advised that if your speed was reduced by the officer at roadside, it is the intention of the prosecutor to seek the rate of speed be amended to the original speed recorded by the officer. If the amendment is made and if convicted, higher penalties such as points and fines may result.

Demerit Points for Speeding
Where a driver is convicted of a speeding ticket, demerit points are added to the driving record. The amount of demerit points is based upon the rate of the speed recorded:

  • 0 to 15km/h – no loss of points
  • 16km/h to 29km/h – 3 points
  • 30km/h to 49km/h – 4 points
  • 50km/h or more – 6 points & 30 day suspension

Regardless if there are points or not, any conviction on a driving abstract can affect your insurance rates.
The police officer nor the courts are obligated to tell you about the demerit points or any of the other hidden penalties for traffic tickets.
