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.

I am very pleased with Azria & Bruffet's services. Thanks to them I will not have to suffer from skyrocketing insurance rates due to a speeding ticket being put on my record. They kept me updated thoroughly every step of the way and made the entire process of getting my ticket reduced to a lesser charge very easy. They were also quick to respond to any questions I had throughout the process with a great deal of professionalism. I would not hesitate to deal with them in the future. Thank you Azria & Bruffet!!

Got a speeding ticket doing 80 in a 65 while on the way to drop my cousin to RIT upstate. Found this firm online, spoke to Ralph & worked with Monica. Was nice and simple process they took care of everything, saved me a drive from NYC upstate. Would highly recommend them to anyone needing to have a speeding ticket handled without the hassles.

Great job! Hope not to have to the need for your service again, but if I do, I shall call. Thanks.

Speeding and registration violation

My experience was very professional and satisfactory. I was able to pay the attorney s fee up front. My attorney worked with the court and I paid a fine for a lowered charge in relationship to my registration. I did not receive points on my license for the speeding

The office handled my speeding case effectively and obtained an outcome that did not put any points on my license. I would recommend this firm to anyone with a similar case.
