• Provincial Offenses Act (POA)

The Provincial Offences Act (POA) is a provincial statute that sets out procedures for the prosecution of offences under other provincial statutes and regulations and municipal by-laws.

 

Highway Traffic Act

Under the POA umbrella is the Highway Traffic Act that includes minor offences. Here are some traffic offences you can get ticketed for:

  • Speeding
  • Demerit points
  • Stunt driving
  • Careless driving
  • Not wearing your seat belt
  • And more.
 

Even though traffic tickets are minor offences, they have serious consequences. Especially those who rely on having a driver’s license. Here is how you can be affected:

  • Demerit points for at least 3 years.
  • A charge appearing on your driving record for at least 3 years.
  • An increase in your insurance rates for at least 3 years.
  • A fine to pay for the offence.
  • Suspended license.

  • Get your driving record cleared.
  • Reduce your demerit points.
  • Keep your insurance rates low.
