It is important to remember that courts do not have jurisdiction to deal with Ontario demerit points. Traffic Law Paralegal Services can help you fight imposition of demerit points.
Demerit points should not be your only consideration. If a traffic ticket conviction is registered on your abstract your insurance may be dramatically affected regardless of Ontario demerit points.
