Why Fight Your Traffic Ticket?

PRINCIPLE
Why pay a fine when you did nothing wrong?

INSURANCE
If you are convicted of some traffic tickets they alone will raise your auto insurance rates.

For example if you are found guilty of Speeding/Passing in a Playground or School Zone, your auto insurance rates can increase by 15-25%.*

If you are found guilty of Careless Driving, Fail to at an Accident, Speeding (in excess of 50 kilometres), Fail to Stop for Peace Officer, Fail to Stop for School Bus, Racing, and Driving while Unauthorized/Under Suspension, your auto insurance rates can increase by 50-300%* for the next 3 to 5 years or your insurance company may decide not to renew your policy by considering you a high risk driver, and place you into facility insurance resulting in extremely high rates.

Some insurance companies will raise your auto insurance rates if you are convicted of 3 or more traffic tickets within 3 years.
*NOTE: these surcharges are based upon current insurance industry standards and are subject to change

LICENCE SUSPENSION
Most traffic tickets for moving violations result in demerit points if you are found guilty (See our Demerit Point Section below for list of demerit points).

A motorist starts off with a clean driving record that means there are 0 demerit points. When you are found guilty of traffic tickets for moving violations you accumulate demerit points.

In Alberta a motorist who has a regular driver’s licence is allowed up to 14 demerit points. When 15 demerit points are reached, the driver’s licence is suspended.

In Alberta, a motorist with a Graduated Driver’s licence is allowed up to 7 demerit points. When 8 demerit points are reached the GDL is suspended.

If you are found guilty of speeding (in excess of 50 kilometres), the Judge/Commissioner can suspend your driver’s licence and impose a substantial fine.

EMPLOYMENT
Some employers require a clean driving record and some employers place restrictions on the number of demerit points or number of convictions an employee/contracted worker can have on their driver’s licence before terminating their employment.

Are you a professional driver (trucker, cab driver, bus driver, school bus driver, seasonal driver) whose livelihood depends on your driving record?

SAVE MONEY
In most cases, we can avoid or reduce the fines.
