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. ​

Speeding Ticket

Seth Azria and his team are great. He helped me reduce my 6 points speeding ticket to a no points, loud muffler violation. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Azria - high professionalism

I worked with Mr. Azria for a speeding tickets that we got close to the Canadian border while in NY state (+25 miles vs speed limit). 
The process went very smoothly and his professionalism saved me a lot of money and also a lots of point on my driving record. 
I highly recommend him and his firm for any speeding/ traffic tickets. 
A happy Ohio motorist.

Perfect

As mentioned in many of the other reviews. Seth and Monica spelled out what should happen and it did. Ticket for my daughter from our of state was reduced to nonmoving violation. She was visiting colleges in NY, as she only has her permit a moving violation would have resulted in, a loss of her license for 3 months, driving school, and fines etc... 
I had no referral, just read the reviews and crossed my fingers. The price was affordable, they were very responsive, I could not be happier. Wished I had used him a couple of years ago when I got a ticket in NYC that I made the very expensive mistake of trying to defend myself...

Over Speeding Ticket

I would recommend Attorney David. They helped me have my speeding ticket withdrawn and even if the program they got me into had stopped after my application they got me a waiver. I also got my program fee refunded. Initially I was too worried as most other websites I visited while researching started following me up which I did not like. David's team was quite professional. My only suggestion is they should have a pre set next action steps format sent to their clients so that most questions get answered automatically
