Inquiry:  Hi my names is Vanessa I am 18years old and I am from Ontario. I have just recently been stopped in the district of Hull,Gatineau by SQ police officer. I was on the 50 thinking that the limit was 100 so i was goin 101 at that point when i was pulled over i was advided by the police officer that the limit was actually 70 and that I was going 31over and that is what he gave me plus a 191$ fine. Their are no demirit points indicated on the fine but i understand that they are not oblidged to indicated them… and since i was stopped in Quebec will it go by the Quebec demirit system or Ontario ? I am a G2 driver… and i am eligible to go and get my G… The officer wrote my middle name wrong on the ticket Joell when its suppost to be Joelle, Also their were two dates on the fine the first one he wrote for the date i got stopped 2012/01/2 witch is incorrect because i got stoppeed january 21rst 2012/ but he correctly wrote it the second time witch is where hes suppost to write when he gave me the ticket.  Thanks so much

Response:  The errors may or may not be a problem for the Prosecutor.  The concern I have with your matter is that since your licence was a G2 class licence on the date of offence, you may be subject to a mandatory suspension of licence on your Ontario licence under the new novice driver legislation should the charge to go conviction as is.  I would recommend speaking with the MTO directly on this issue to confirm their policy regarding out-of-province convictions and novice drivers.  If you would like to discuss your matter further, please feel free to contact our office via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299 for a no cost initial review of your case.
