Municipalities to Gain Power to Deny Licence Plates for Unpaid Speeding Tickets

Under a new regulation, currently being considered by the Ministry of Transportation, municipalities will gain the power to deny licence plates to drivers with unpaid speeding tickets. The change, part of the Making Ontario’s Roads Safer Act, originally passed in 2015, would apply licence plate denial retroactively to all outstanding driving-related fines over the last seven years. According to the government municipalities and the province are collectively owed $1.4 million in unpaid fines for provincial offences.
