WHAT ARE THE FINES FOR DRIVING IN AN HOV LANE IN ONTARIO?

What are the fines for driving in an HOV lane in Ontario? HOV is an acronym which stands for high occupancy vehicle. There are a number of high-occupancy vehicles that we are all familiar with. Those include trucks, limousines, buses, passenger vehicles. As long as that passenger vehicle has two persons or more, and all electric vehicles, whether it has one passenger or one driver. You could simply be driving your electric vehicle all on your own and you’re more than welcome to be in one of those HOV lanes. However, if you are driving a motor vehicle that is not considered to be allowed and you would not be considered to be allowed in that lane if you were driving a non-electric vehicle by yourself.

If you were caught, you could expect to be ticketed. If you were ticketed with something like that, the ticket fine would be 110, which isn’t terrible, but it does carry with it three demerit points. So you would have a 110 fine to pay with the three demerit points. And now, unfortunately, you have the distinction on your driver’s abstract, which would be viewed by your insurance company as being a moving violation.

When that occurs, you can expect that there would be an adjustment, and usually much higher, to your insurance rate.
