Ontario - Penalties Toughened for Serious Traffic Offences




Came across this news - Effective January 1, 2010, penalties for the following offences will increase:

1. failure to stop at a red light - fine increases from $500 to $1,000

2. failure to wear a seat belt and failure to ensure passengers under 16 are properly secured - fine increases from $500 to $1,000

3. careless driving and failure to remain at the scene of a collision - fine increases from $1,000 to $2,000

4. drivers who do not pull over and stop for emergency vehicles or who follow fire vehicles too closely:
1st offence - maximum fine increases from 500 to $2000, in addition 3 demerit points + a possible two-year licence suspension - up from the current maximum penalty of a $500 fine.
subsequent offences (within five years): maximum fine increases from $500 to $4,000, three demerit points, a two-year driver's licence suspension and a six-month prison sentence

It's that time of the year, please don't drink and drive and drive safely
