website says 2 but I guess I was thinking about the insurance company .. and from my understand each one is different on how long they hold it against you (may it be a ticket or an accident)

As Ivan said, you already confessed to the crime by admitting you were doing 20 over (not smart). He had nothing on you until you said that.

Do as some here said and follow roadwarriors (request disclosure, file a court date, wait as neither come on time, play your cards right in response, etc). You have a good chance of getting off completely if you educate yourself well and go in knowing how to play the game.

Your MTO link is specifically saying 2 years in regards to demerit points only

Demerit points again is different than conviction record. If you call the MTO you will get the following info.

Demerit points come off after 2 years, conviction is removed from your drivers abstract after 3 years from conviction date. Your insurance company can request a copy of your drivers abstract

I have been through this MANY times

fight the ticket, either in person or hire someone to do it for you.
Follow the links and figure out how to get disclosure.

Then spend what you saved on track days so you don't feel the urge to speed on the highway.

correct..from date of ticket issue...which is another benefit to fighting it.

by the time the court date shows up you already burned through at least 6 months worth of the 3 years. it doesn't show up on your abstract until the courts say guilty.

so for the time being your ticket is just that...not a conviction.

however - police records will keep your tickets on file forever! not for 3 years. since day one of your record. you think an officer will give someone a break that has a string of tickets?

As a previous poster said, this is not right. The 3 years clock starts from the date of conviction.

You are right however that it will not show up on the driver abstract until you are convicted, but unfortunately thats when your 3 year clock starts.

Remember: Demerit points dont matter unless you're losing your licence. Fines for speeding are small. You're fighting to keep your insurance cheap. Admitting guilt to an officer is NEVER the right thing to do, especially when he admitted to you he had no idea how fast you were going. (Officers cannot "guess" your speed based on how fast they were going to catch you, that will never stand up in court.)
Bingo. Need solid proof. Never EVER admit guilt. Also fight it! Hire someone if you can't handle it, its worth it

Touching on a simmilar subject.. I recieved a failure to stop for red light as I went through the light in the pouring rain and T-boned a civic in my work van... I requested a court date. (feb 20)

the officer listed 2 people in my vehicle however I was the only one in it... I heard that any mistake on the ticket gets the ticket thrown out?

My friend had his street spelled wrong on a speeding ticket and it was thrown out... will I get that lucky? how will I prove I was the only person in my vehicle..

I was at fault and did indeed slide into the intersection(braked way too late)...can I blame the weather and unfammiliar vehicle and hope for a lesser charge?

unlikely but you need to look it up. Whatever you do don't ask the prosecutor. They can change it before trial.

Other than that fight them all, get professional help if you need to

My paralegal was HWY LAW at Keele and Lawrence...If you going to the York City Hall for this traffic ticket use them,they know everyone there including the ticket happy traffic officers....hope for a 11B at the trail most of time you can get dismissal for the lack of time to review the police statements and the length of time it took them to get it to you but immediately ask for the police statements though.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't know at the time to ask for disclosure, I wish I did though. too late now.

I can confirm it is 3 years from the date of conviction, and, its actually not going to change your premiums back down until the renewal following the 3rd anniversary of the conviction.

Dont get caught.

Daytona, how can you get points without a conviction?
