Inquiry:  My 20 year old daughter got a speeding ticket for 21 kms over the limit with no demerit points and then received notice her license was suspended for 30 days? How do they suspend her license if she received no demerit points? This was her first ever ticket.

Response:  Without knowing more specific information about her case, it is difficult to give you specific feedback.  If the charge that she was issued was 21 km/h over the speed limit, then the charge carries 3 demerit points in Ontario.  If she has a class 1 or class 2 licence, it could be suspended for a conviction carrying 4 or more demerit points (for being 30 to 49 km/h over the posted speed limit).  She may want to check her driving record (obtainable through the Service Ontario website or an MTO office) to clarify exactly what is on her driving history.
