Fight Your Barrie Speeding Ticket

As a lively urban area, Barrie experiences its fair share of traffic violations, and speeding is at the forefront. This common transgression can carry considerable consequences for your driving record and insurance coverage.

OTD Ticket Defenders is your go-to resource for disputing Barrie speeding tickets. We’re here to guide and support you every step of the way.

Understanding Speeding as Defined by the Highway Traffic Act

Under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act (HTA), speeding is defined as driving over the posted speed limit on any road. These limits are set to ensure the safety of all who use the road, and surpassing them can result in a traffic ticket and additional penalties. Naturally, the more you exceed the speed limit, the more serious the traffic offences become. 

Stunt Driving

Surpassing the speed limit by 40 km/hr in areas where the limit is below 80 km/hr, going 50 km/hr over in 80 km/hr or higher zones, or driving a vehicle at speeds exceeding 150 km/hr, can all lead to stunt driving charges. This violation carries consequences including on-the-spot license suspension, impoundment of your vehicle, and significant fines.

Careless Driving

Careless driving charges, which cover a range of unsafe driving practices including speeding, can lead to severe repercussions. Operating a vehicle without due caution or consideration for other road users may result in fines, license suspension, or in some cases, imprisonment. For those in Barrie who’ve received a careless driving ticket, OTD Legal is here to help navigate your defence.

The Consequences of Speeding in Barrie

Speeding offences carry weighty consequences, with their severity being tied to the extent of the infraction.


The cost of a speeding ticket is determined by how much you exceed the speed limit. Fines start at $2.50 per km/h for minor violations (1-19 km/h over), escalating to more than $9.75 per km/h for more substantial breaches of the speed limit.

Insurance Premiums

A conviction on a traffic ticket charge often leads to increased insurance rates and premiums. Your insurance company evaluates factors like the severity of the offence, your overall driving history, age, and the type of your license. Accumulating several speeding tickets might make it challenging to secure insurance from standard providers.

Demerit Points and Driving Record

A conviction for speeding results in the addition of demerit points to your driving record. Accumulating these points over time can lead to the suspension of your driving privileges. These convictions also stay on your driving record for an extended period of time.


In cases of extreme speeding or other dangerous driving actions that jeopardize road safety or inflict harm, imprisonment can be a possible outcome.

Speeding for Novice and Commercial Drivers

Novice and commercial drivers face unique sets of rules when it comes to speeding infractions:

Novice Drivers

For novice drivers with G1, G2, M1, or M2 licenses, the consequences of speeding are more severe. A first offence involving a speeding ticket with four or more demerit points may lead to a suspension of their license and possibly even its cancellation.

Commercial Drivers

For commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers, speeding offences carry specific risks. Accumulation of points on their Commercial Vehicle Operator’s Registration (CVOR) can happen quickly, leading to potential job loss, challenges in finding new employment, and the possibility of an audit from the Ministry of Transportation (MTO).
