Do unsafe lane change or following too closely convictions in NY transfer to Ontario?

by Seth Azria on 2/23/2020

Generally, an Ontario driver convicted of a driving offense in the State of New York  will acquire points just as if the offense happened in Ontario. 

The specific convictions from New York that will add demerit points are:  

  • speeding
  • failure to obey a stop sign
  • failure to obey a signal light
  • failure to stop for a school bus
  • racing
  • failing to remain at or return to the scene of an collision
  • careless driving

See: https://www.ontario.ca/page/understanding-demerit-points#section-6

Based on the information from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, it appears that a conviction for unsafe lane change or following too closely would add points to an Ontario driving record.* 

This is good news for the driver but demerit points are not the only consideration. Pleading guilty to these tickets would incur total fines from the court of up to $300 plus a $186 surcharge. And the New York Driver Responsibility Assessment would cost the driver $375. Additionally, the driver's insurance company may raise premiums or even drop coverage. 

Never plead guilty to any ticket without first fully understanding the consequences and options. Always call a lawyer first, we offer free consultations, you might as well take advantage.

Azria & Bruffett provided excellent representation for my 89-year old father who was charged with two tickets in Cortland, NY. For a very affordable fee, they were able to obtain dismissal of the moving violation resulting in a very small fine and court costs. I live in another state so this was especially convenient for me to help my dad and they saved me a lot of time. We spoke with an attorney and a paralegal (Monica) guided my dad and I through the remainder of the process. The firm responded to all of my questions promptly. Highly recommended.

If you're looking for the man, you found him

David Bruffett is an amazing lawyer. I had trouble finding someone in Syracuse who I could trust and who was out for my best interest and not just chasing dollar signs. Once I contacted Mr. Bruffett, I immediately felt a huge weight lifted from my shoulders. I had 6 outstanding tickets and he was able to get 2 dismissed and the rest all reduced to non moving violations with extremely reasonable fines. I could not recommend him enough. Whether you have simple speeding tickets or a suspended license charge, Azria & Bruffett's Firm is truly the place to go. Thanks again David.
Best regards, Casey N.
