Helping Canadian Drivers With New York Traffic Tickets
An aggressive defense in the face of a speeding ticket can be a worthwhile investment, especially when it could mean points or demerits on your driving record.
Both the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) and the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) have reciprocal agreements with New York, which means that if you are convicted of a driving-related offense or other NY traffic violation, you can receive demerit points or other penalties on your Canadian driving record.
The number of demerit points received for a New York speeding violation will vary, depending on how fast you were driving and whether you are licensed in Quebec or Ontario. But being convicted of a traffic violation in New York can lead to demerit points that can cause increases in your auto insurance premiums and lead to the suspension of your driver’s license.
