Update:see previous post – June 22, 2015 30 Km/h Speed Limits in Downtown Toronto and East York
Stay within the maximum speed limit posted on signs along all roads. As a general rule, you will be safer if you drive at the same speed as traffic around you, without going over the speed limit.
Always drive at a speed that will let you stop safely, whether roads are wet or dry.
Where there are no posted speed limit signs, do not drive faster than:
- 30 km/hour in parts of Toronto and East York (see map below)
- 50 km/hour in cities, towns, villages and built-up areas
- 80 km/hour in any other area
If you are convicted of speeding, you may receive demerit points in addition to fines.
- 3 points for going over the speed limit by 16 to 29 km/hour
- 4 points for going over the speed limit by 30 to 49 km/hour
- 6 points for going over the speed limit by 50 km/hour or more
Your fine will depend on how fast you were travelling over the posted speed limit:
|How much over the speed limit||Fine per km/h over the speed limit|
|Less than 20 km/h||$3|
|20 to less than 30 km/h||$4.50|
|30 to less than 50 km/h||$7|
|50 km/h or more||$9.75|
