- 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:
- 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.
