Demerit Points for Canadian Drivers Convicted of New York Traffic Tickets

by Seth Azria on 2/10/2013

Ontario and Québec keep track of Canadian driving violations with a demerit system similar to New York State's point system.  Under a special agreement, Ontario and Québec share information with New York State about traffic violations and transfer points and demerits between countries. For example, an Ontario driver convicted of a speeding ticket in New York State will be assessed demerit points as if the conviction had occurred in Ontario. 

Ontario demerits for speeding violations:

  • 6 demerits for exceeding the speed limit  50 Km/h (roughly 31 MPH)
  • 4 demerits for exceeding the speed limit  30-49 Km/h (roughly 19-31 MPH)
  • 3 demerits for exceeding the speed limit  16-29 Km/h (roughly 10-19 MPH)

Other violations may include failure to obey a stop sign, failure to obey a traffic light, failure to stop for a school bus, failure to remain or return to the scene of a collision.   

Rather than plead guilty to your New York State state ticket, contact us to defend you and protect your Canadian license from demerits.

The cooperation agreement includes points for New York drivers ticketed in Ontario and Québec. ​

Would recommend to anyone

Seth Azria was recommended to me by a friend. I can't say enough about how well I was treated, his responsiveness, and how my case was handled. My first call to him was on 12/22/14 and we met the same day. My first and last date in court was 1/15/15. The outcome was better than I ever expected it could be and would recommend him to anyone.
