Fight Traffic Tickets Niagara Region
If you have been issued a traffic ticket in the Niagara region, help is available to help you fight that ticket to lower the fines and penalties that come with a conviction.
Most people do not realize the importance of challenging traffic tickets, or even that they are able to do so. A very low percentage of people that have received a ticket for a traffic violation attempt to dispute it. The majority of people do not think about fighting a traffic ticket until it is too late and they are already convicted. Once a conviction has been passed down, it is very difficult to reverse.
That is why it is in your best interest to fight traffic tickets to try to reduce penalties and avoid a conviction.

Traffic violations will fall into 1 of 3 categories:
- Minor Tickets
- Major Tickets
- Serious and Criminal Tickets
Minor infractions include violations like speeding, no seatbelt, failure to signal, turning violations and things of this nature. These tickets usually come with a fine and possible demerit points.
As you may have guessed major tickets are more serious than minor ones. Major infractions include insurance offences, failure to report an accident, and damage to highway property. These violations will result in a larger fines and automatic demerit points.
Serious and Criminal Tickets
Serious and criminal tickets are substantially more severe and incur harsher penalties if convicted. Some serious offences are careless driving, stunt driving, DUI, and vehicular manslaughter.
Penalties for serious and criminal offences include hefty fines, more demerit points, possible licence suspension, and possible imprisonment.
Effects of a Traffic Conviction
The effects of a traffic conviction can have widespread implications. There are the concrete penalties like fines and demerit points. However, more tickets will lead to higher fines and more demerit points.
This can have a substantial impact on your insurance premiums.
If you reach a total of 9 demerit points, you may be requested for an interview where you will need to prove why you should be able to keep your licence. Failure to show up for this interview can also result in your licence being suspended.
A suspended licence may make it difficult to do your job. If your job demands that you have a valid driver’s licence, it may result in the termination of said job.
