Driving While Under Suspension
Did you know that the minimum fine for a conviction for “Driving While Under Suspension” will result in an automatic six month suspension of your Driver’s Licence? In addition, the minimum fine totals $1250.00. These penalties increase with subsequent convictions and could even result in a jail sentence. Your insurance premiums will also drastically increase!
The Highway Traffic Act puts a strong duty on the driver of a motor vehicle to ensure that his or her licence is not suspended. Driving while your licence is under suspension will likely result in a charge of “Driving While Under Suspension”.
Planning on going to court alone? Did you know that not knowing your drivers licence was suspended may not be an acceptable excuse?
If you are convicted, the Judge has no power to reduce the suspension period. So if you want to avoid the six month suspension, you must avoid a conviction for “Driving While Under Suspension”.
