Demerit Points for Canadian Drivers Convicted of New York Traffic Tickets

by Seth Azria on 2/09/2013

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.  

For more information on Canadian demerits see:

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

I incurred a speeding ticket in Syracuse while taking my nephews to Lacrosse Camp. I am from out of town and unknowingly went through a speed trap. I contacted Azria Law Firm once I returned home. They were extremely professional, courteous and prompt with all information, explanations of the legal procedure and with answers to all of my questions. It has been just over 30 days and my violation and fine have been reduced. I am very pleased and recommend the firm highly. They are reasonably priced and successfully resolved my case. In my profession, I work with lawyers all the time. I wish they were all as communicative and diligent as Seth and his staff.
