Save Your Insurance and Demerit Points
We fight your speeding ticket to save your insurance and demerit points.
Fighting Your Speeding Ticket
Just appearing in court and hoping that the officer doesn’t show or giving an explanation why you were speeding is not the way to fight your ticket.
Speeding ticket trials are won on legal technicalities such as;
- cross-examining police officers,
- testing procedures,
- legal issues like filing dates, errors and omissions,
- issues around disclosure and time delay arguments.
As experienced trial advocates, OTT has appeared in traffic court thousands of times, we know the legal technicalities for fighting speeding tickets to win your case.
At trial, the police officer is assisted by a court appointed prosecutor who, many times, can be a lawyer or person with years of experience.
★★★★★ I recently had two speeding tickets fought, both where dismissed. My insurance would have gone through the roof, not to mention the demerit points. Once again excellent work, and I’ll keep referring your company. Ted B. Toronto, ON.”
At OTT Legal, we give your case individual attention. Each case is assigned a trial paralegal with experience fighting speeding tickets.
We prepare your case by ordering the officers notes, any radar manuals, and filing any applicable legal arguments at no extra charge.

Insurance Implications for Speeding Tickets
The actual cost of a speeding ticket in Ontario can be much more than the fine on the ticket.
Insurance companies look at the risk for any insurance policy holder. Insurance companies believe that if a driver has speeding tickets on their record, their chance of being involved in an accident or making a claim is higher than those who don’t.
If you receive one or more speeding tickets, your insurance may be increased. Insurance companies are constantly looking at speeding tickets and any traffic ticket as an opportunity to increase the insurance premiums for the driver.
Although there may have been nothing dangerous about the speeding allegation, insurance companies look at all the factors involved for any driver to determine what rate they will charge.
Drivers must fight every speeding ticket to ensure that they do everything to keep their driving record clear.
