Inquiry:  can an officer issue a no insurance ticket in a parking lot

Response:  Yes and no.  A Officer can issue a no insurance charge in a parking lot if he has observed the driver driving on a roadway previously.  If the Officer has not observed the driver on a roadway previously, then the charge could likely get dismissed at Court.  A charge of Drive M/V – No Insurance carries a fine between $5,000 to $25,000 (plus 25% VFS) for a first offence and $10,000 to $50,000 (plus 25% VFS) for a secondary offence.  The charge also carries up to a one year suspension of licence.  If you would like to speak with one of our staff further about defending your charge, we can be reached via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
