Traffic Tickets

Failing to Stop at a Red Light

X-Copper has successfully represented thousands of clients who have been charged with traffic tickets for red light – fail to stop.

A conviction for red light – fail to stop carries 3 demerit points and a set fine of $260.00 + surcharge.  This could impact your insurance premiums because insurance companies tend to view it as a major offence.  Any conviction for red light – fail to stop will stay on your driving record for three years. 

Definition of “Red Light – Fail to Stop”:
"Every driver approaching a traffic control signal showing a circular red indication, or red light and facing the indication shall stop his or her vehicle and shall not proceed until a green indication is shown." Ontario Highway Traffic Act Section 144(18)

Exception:  "Despite subsection 144(18), a driver, after stopping his or her vehicle and yielding the right of way to traffic lawfully approaching so closely that to proceed would constitute an immediate hazard, may, turn to the right; or turn to the left from a one-way street into a one-way street, without a green indication being shown".
