Got a Speeding Ticket?
Speeding is probably the most common charge related to traffic offences. Every road has a set speed limit, whether posted or not. It is your duty as a driver to obey all posted speed limits, as well as understand the regulations regarding types of roads and automatic limits. By driving over the speed limit, you are risking being charged with speeding, and you are putting yourself and others in danger. Speed limits are enforced for your own safety, and the safety of other motorists and pedestrians.
What are the penalties?
The fines and demerit points associated with speeding are based on the alleged rate of travel above the speed limit. The demerit points are as follows:
- 1-15 km over – 2 points
- 16-30 km over – 3 points
- 31 – 50 km over – 4 points
- 50+ km over – 6 demerit points plus possible loss of license for 3 months plus possible incarceration
- The fines for speeding range from $57 - $351 depending on your rate of travel. Speeding through a set construction zone will result in an immediate doubling of the normal fine. Every conviction for speeding will stay on your record for a period of 3 years.
