Demerit Points for Canadian Drivers Convicted of New York Traffic Tickets

by Seth Azria on 2/08/2013

New York State and Canadian Provinces Have Close Relationship

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.   

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

David Bruffett got our traffic ticket dismissed, he was upfront and honest about the process, and he was prompt in returning my call - what more can you ask for? :)

I had an excellent experience with this law firm. Mr Bruffett brought down my charges significantly and now I have zero points. He was always available if I had questions. They are a very organized and efficient group of professionals. I am very pleased with the outcome and I highly recommend them for traffic violations.
