COVID-19 UPDATE: X-COPPER will remain OPEN to the public via telephone and email during the Provincial Court closure period. X-COPPER is practicing social distancing and we are not currently open to the public for personal (face to face) consultations.

In the over five years since we first told you about how to fight the ticket you receive from a speed enforcement camera, very little has changed.

You should still always choose the trial option on the ticket, instead of just pleading guilty and paying the fine. You should still ask for a copy of the calibration records. And, considering some of the consequences listed below, you should still get the expert legal advice and specialized legal services of X-Copper’s experienced team of traffic ticket lawyers and specialists.

But, as recently reported by the Toronto Star, there are 50 new reasons to give yourself the best chance to beat a speeding ticket from a photo radar camera.   

Toronto’s New Photo Radar Cameras

As mentioned in The Star article, the City of Toronto activated 50 automated speed enforcement cameras in school areas around the city on July 6th. And they immediately went to work nabbing speedy drivers. Here are just some of the statistics piled up by the cameras in their first month of operation.

  • 22,301 – Total number of speeding tickets issued by all the new cameras.
  • 2,786 –  The most tickets issued by a single camera, located on Renforth Dr., Etobicoke. That’s over 90 tickets a day.
  • 49 km Over – The amount over the limit the worst speeder was travelling – in a 40 km zone!
  • $718 – The highest fine levied, issued to that same worst speeder.

 

Consequences of Being Convicted of a Speeding Ticket Issued by an Automated Speed Enforcement Camera

When you find out how a photo radar ticket differs from a regular speeding ticket, you might think that you’re being let off the hook a bit if you’re convicted of a photo radar speeding offence. But, there is still at least one very serious consequence of being convicted. 

Section 207 of the Highway Traffic Act provides that the registered owner of a vehicle can be liable for a speeding offence measured by photo radar even if they were not the driver at the time, subject to limited exceptions. Neither demerit points nor a driver’s licence suspension will result from your conviction for this offence. A conviction will not reach your driving record and will not affect your insurance rates.  However, failure to pay the ticket could result in issues when it comes time to renew your plates.”

If you haven’t already, you can find out more about how to fight a photo radar ticket in our original “How to Fight a Photo Radar Ticket” post.
