The York Region is located between Toronto and Lake Simcoe. It includes the municipalities of Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Aurora, and Markham.

4. How Will A Traffic Ticket Affect My Insurance Rates?
If you are found guilty of a charge, there is the possibility that it could affect your insurance rates. While most insurance companies allow forgiveness, if it is your first minor Traffic Ticket, they are all different. If you receive multiple Traffic Tickets, your insurance company will most likely increase your insurance rate.
Insurance companies commonly classify Traffic Tickets into two groups, Minor and Severe charges. An example of a severe charge is Careless Driving or Stunt Driving. Minor charges are speeding tickets that carry zero demerit points. The classification of your ticket by an insurance company can play a large part in whether or not your insurance rates will rise.
5. How Will Demerit Points Affect My Driver’s Licence?
If you receive too many demerit points, the Ministry of Transportation can suspend your licence for 30 days. The Ministry of Transportation Ontario uses demerit points to track your driving record. If too many demerit points are assessed to your licence, you can receive a warning letter, licence suspension, or have your licence taken away permanently.
Our article, The Demerit Point System, goes in-depth and explains everything you need to know about demerit points.
3 Reasons To Fight Your York Region Traffic Ticket
1. Demerit Points
If you receive too many demerit points, the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) can revoke or suspend your licence. MTO is the governing body that monitors your driving to determine if you should keep your licence. They do this by tracking how many demerit points are added to your driver’s licence.
2. Insurance Rates
To ensure you keep your insurance rates low, we recommend fighting your Traffic Ticket. When a ticket is in the court process, only you and the officer know about the ticket. The ticket does not appear on your driving record, nor is your insurance company told about the ticket. You must be convicted of a Traffic Ticket for your insurance company to find out that you received one.
3. Licence Suspension
Some Traffic Tickets carry licence suspensions, especially if you’re a class G1 or G2 driver. The Police Officer is not required to tell you if a licence suspension is attached to the Traffic Ticket, so do not expect them to. The only way to avoid a licence suspension is to fight your Traffic Ticket in court.
