Traffic Tickets

The Demerit Point System

Demerit points are entered on the record of drivers who commit certain offences under the Highway Traffic Act. They can also be applied under some municipal by-laws, provincial or federal statutes, or regulations relating to road safety. Demerit Points remain on your driving record for two years from the date the traffic ticket is received. You could potentially lose your driver's licence for accumulating too many points.

Novice drivers in Ontario can accrue up to eight demerit points, while fully licenced drivers may accumulate up to 14 demerit points. Once you reach 15 demerit points, as a fully licensed driver, or nine demerit points, as a novice driver, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation will suspend your driver's licence for 30 days (full licence) or 60 days (novice licence) for the first demerit point violation. A second demerit point suspension will result in a six month suspension.

I retained these services for a traffic ticket in September 2014. I was facing a charge of improper left hand turn. We went to trial and my representative was Tom. My charge was completely withdrawn. I was extremely pleased with this service and would highly recommend X-Copper. "
