The fine attached to a stop sign ticket is not the only penalty for the offence. A stop sign ticket has four different penalties:
- two (2) demerit points
- fine of two hundred and forty ($240) dollars
- conviction registered on your driving record for three years
- potential licence suspensions for novice drivers
- insurance increases
Where a driver is convicted of failing to wear a seatbelt, the ticket will go on your driving record for three years including any demerit points. Any moving violation on a driver’s abstract can affect your insurance rates.
