Every insurance company is different, but through our experiences, this is what we have learned about Traffic Tickets in Toronto.

Most insurance companies will let you get away with receiving one (1) Traffic Ticket. If you have received multiple Traffic Tickets in Toronto, you could be in trouble. One last thing to note is the type of charge. Insurance companies classify Traffic Tickets in Toronto into two groups: minor and serious.

Minor charges range from: stop sign infractions to speeding charges.
Serious charges range from: speeding 50km/h over the posted limit to careless driving.

Let me clarify one thing about demerit points! 95% of insurance companies do not care about your demerit points, they only look at how many Traffic Tickets you have and if they are minor or serious.

Demerit points are a way for the Ministry of Transportation Ontario to track your driving record. The Demerit Point System encourages drivers to improve their driving skills and protect people from those who abuse the privilege to drive. If you receive too many Demerit Points there is a very good possibility you will lose your license for a minimum of 30 days.
