Question: I got a seat belt ticket in Kitchener at a an intersection while turning the corner I never had it on but would like to know if theres away to beat it or get reduced fine with no points.

Answer: Beside the fine on the ticket, there are two other penalties that come as a result of a Driver Fail To Properly Wear Seatbelt charge: 2 demerit points on your driving history and the impact on your insurance, which will depend on a number of factors. If your seatbelt was indeed not being worn, then it may be difficult to eliminate the charge. However, depending on the Court that your matter is assigned to, there may be the possibility of having the charge reduced to a 0 demerit point lesser offence.
