Do tickets in the US get carried over to Canada?

Lets say Im driving in Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois and I get a speeding ticket. Will the Ministry of Transportation and my insurance company (Statefarm) know about it?

From http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/dan...er/demerit.htm

Demerit Points for Out-of-Province Convictions
Drivers convicted of a driving related offence in the State of New York, the State of Michigan or any Canadian province or territory, will have home jurisdictional penalties such as demerit points and/or suspensions applied to their Ontario driver record as if the offence occurred in Ontario.


Watch Michigan, and New York State. The points will come back to Ontario. They can request your license to be supsended if you don't pay the ticket.

Are you planning on speeding or doing something illegal?

Intent is the first problem with society today

Technically no, but once you get licensed there, they will request a history of your driving for insurance purposes. Then they will see it.

Be very careful in the states. There might be an arrest warrant for you. You might drive safely, but if someone hits you, and the police is called, you could be in trouble once they run your drivers license.

Even if you pay a speeding ticket, it is a good idea to carry proof that you paid it for a few months. They are slow to update systems across different states.

Speeding in the US is not worth the hassle. At least buy a radar/laser dector.
