The fine attached to a traffic ticket for a disobey sign or prohibited turn ticket is not the only penalty for the ticket.
A prohibited turn ticket, including turn tickets issued under a bylaw can have four different penalties:
- Two demerit points
- A fine of one hundred and ten dollars ($110.00)
- A conviction registered on your driving record for three (3) years
- Determination of fault in accident cases
- Possible insurance increases
Disobey sign tickets, although usually nothing dangerous has happened, can affect insurance rates for three (3) years, and demerits can lead to licence suspensions.
