Street Racing in Ontario – Charges
If you have been slapped with a street racing ticket, you may have to deal with serious consequences. A hefty fine, 6 demerit points, possible license suspension and imprisonment are all potential penalties for those convicted.
The Ontario Highway Traffic Act considers a number of behaviours to be street racing in Ontario. You could receive a street racing ticket if you are found:
• Driving 2 or more vehicles over the lawful rate of speed, and in a manner that appears that both drivers are engaged in a competition.
• Driving in a way that appears you are chasing another vehicle.
• Driving carelessly and thereby endangering other people by driving well over the speed limit, attempting to outdistance another vehicle at high speed, or repeatedly changing lanes in and out of traffic at a high speed.
