Stunt Driving – Toronto, Ontario

Facing stunt driving charges in Toronto can be intimidating. Stunt driving is recognized as a serious traffic offence, and charges come with the possibility of harsh legal repercussions. OTD Legal is well-versed in the complexities of such cases and offers steadfast legal support to guide you through these difficult times.

What is Stunt Driving?

Stunt driving in Toronto involves a spectrum of driving behaviors as outlined in Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act (HTA). This includes driving 40 km/h above the posted speed limit in less than 80 km/h zones, surpassing the limit by 50 km/h in zones of more than 80 km/h, and driving a motor vehicle at a speed exceeding 150 km/h.

Apart from excessive speeding, stunt driving in Ontario encompasses other driving activities, including but not limited to, executing donuts, engaging in street racing, driving a vehicle while not sitting in the driver’s seat (so-called “ghost riding”), and intentionally cutting off another vehicle. 

Because stunt driving charges can lead to severe penalties, it is highly recommended to seek legal assistance. Professional legal guidance from someone who understands the intricacies of these charges can greatly enhance your prospects for a favourable resolution.

Stunt Driving Penalties

If you get stopped by the Toronto police for stunt driving, you could be subject to some or all of the following penalties:

  • Court Fine – A conviction for stunt driving can result in a fine between $2,000 and $10,000 (plus a 25% victim fine surcharge).
  • Driver’s Licence Suspension – Your driver’s license will also be immediately seized and suspended for 30 days.
  • Vehicle Impoundment – If you’re charged with stunt driving, expect your vehicle to be immediately towed and held in impound for 14 days. The fees for towing and impoundment can range between a few hundred to thousands of dollars.

Upon conviction of stunt driving, you could face the following consequences:

  • Mandatory enrollment in a driver improvement course
  • A licence suspension of 1 to 3 years for a first offence
  • A licence suspension of 3 to 10 years for a subsequent offence
  • An indefinite licence cancellation for a third offence
  • A permanent lifetime licence cancellation
  • Imprisonment – A stunt driving conviction can carry a jail sentence of as long as six months. To minimize the risk of imprisonment, it’s essential to get the support of a skilled paralegal.
  • 6 Demerit Points – The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) categorizes stunt driving as an offence carrying six demerit points. Convicted individuals will initially get a warning letter from the MTO. Further consequences, based on your driving history and current demerit point tally, may include a mandatory paid interview with the MTO or an enforced suspension of your driving license for accruing too many points.
  • 5 CVOR Points – For commercial drivers stunt driving is a five CVOR point offence (the highest possible CVOR penalty). 
  • Insurance Cost Increases – The severity of a stunt driving conviction could exclude you from qualifying for regular insurance policies, pushing you towards high-risk or facility insurance options. Such a change can impose extra costs on your insurance, potentially adding thousands of dollars to your annual premiums.
  • Driving Record – Convictions, demerit points or license suspensions remain on your record for an extended period of time.
