could you tell us in detail what sign you disobey .., I dont think it is the same penalty for all the signs.

You could probably write what happened ... It would surely help if you want advice from others

1. Disobey legal sign is 2 demerit points. It just is as a matter of MTO regulation.

2. Maybe. Maybe not. Not all insurance companies surcharge for "disobey legal sign". Even among those that do, most will let you have one ticket "free" without surcharge in any three-year rolling period, and some will let you have two tickets "free".

3. Depends. What was the sign? The only real defence to this charge is that you either 1) it wasn't you driving (mistaken identity), 2) it was you but you didn't do what the sign prohibits, or 3) the sign itself wasn't a legal sign.

Any moving violation has demerit points.

Maybe when you're older... but for an insurance company to not surcharge a policy, especially when itís a young driver is extremely unlikely.

So yes, your ticket will effect you.

When you get a ticket, you should automatically think, yes this will effect your insurance because is most cases it will. The only ticket an insurance dismisses is the failure to show proof of insurance, meaning you didn't have your liability (pink) slip with you.
