The Quebec Governement added new rules to the Highway Safety Code: Secure Distance when passing a bicycle. Drivers must now clear a distance of 1.5m (5 ft) when passing a bicycle at more than 50km/h and a distance of 1m (3 ft) when passing at less than 50km/h.Drivers who don't respect this will receive a ticket with a 200$ to 300$ fine and 2 demerit points.
We see more and more tickets handed out to cyclists, mainly for not respecting signalisation. Know that if you get a ticket while cycling and possess a drivers' licence, the demerit points are going to be added to your driver's record and you could lose your licence!
If you get any of these traffic ticket, give us a call as we may be able to help you out.
The Government of Quebec have raised the amount of demerit points from 3 to 4 for the usage of a cell phone while driving, since Spring 2015. Doing so, drivers with an apprentice or temporary drivers licence will lose their licence upon a first offence related to cell phone usage while driving. This loss will raise the cost on the renewal of their licence and on their insurance premium.
Remember that only holding a cell phone in your hand while driving is a valid cause for the emission of a ticket. Only tickets emitted after the new rule is active will give four demerit points..
If you get a ticket for using a cell phone while driving, contact-us promptly. We can help you out.
This new rule indicates that a driver licence can be immidiately suspended for a period of 24 hours for any person failing a coordination test asked by an officer of law to evaluate his or her capacity to drive. There is three coordination tests: eye movement, walking and turning back, and stand still on one foot.
The goal of this rule is to remove immediately from the road a driver that not in a state where he could drive safely. If alcohol is in play, the driver licence could be suspended for 90 days et the person charged with a criminal offence.
Since April 25l 2013, any person found guilty of street racing or car surfing will receive twelve demerit points on his driving record. These points adds up to all the other sanction already in place for car racing and car surfing, which are a 1 000 $ fee, immediate suspension of the driver's licence for 7 days, and car impound for 7 days (in case of second offence: suspension and impound for 30 days).
