Reciprocal Agreements

Update: See previous page

Each jurisdiction has its own laws with respect to the rules of the road.  In order to be licenced, a driver must familiarize themselves with the laws of the place where they are licenced.  Most driver’s are aware of the laws of the road in their immediate jurisdiction.

If driver’s travel outside of their home jurisdiction, then the laws and the rules of the road change.  The fact that a driver doesn’t know the laws at the place that they are visiting or driving through, will make little difference with police or the courts. Both mistake of law and ignorance of the law are not defences to a traffic charge and won’t assist a motorist who challenges his or her ticket(s).

If you are convicted of an offence outside of your home jurisdiction, then the laws and consequences of that jurisdiction will apply to you, even if you don’t reside there.  The authorities have your information at their fingertips (your driver’s licence, your insurance documentation, your vehicle registration and licence plate, etc).

Here is a definition of “reciprocity” according to the Compact Oxford English Dictionary:
reciprocity
ressi-pross-iti
• noun – the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit.

Provinces, Territories, States and Other Countries have signed “Reciprocal Agreements” with each other, which benefits each signatory to the agreement. Even though all Provinces, Territories, States and countries have different laws, many agreements have been signed (reciprocal agreements) between these Provinces, Territories, States and other countries, to ensure that their laws are respected and enforced in the other Provinces, Territories, States and countries.

Example:
If you are convicted of an offence in New York, which has a fine and demerit points attached to that conviction – that conviction can be enforced in Ontario. Your licence can be suspended in Ontario for that conviction in New York and until you pay the New York fine, your Ontario licence will remain suspended. New York and Ontario have a reciprocal agreement in this area. Convictions for certain violations in Michigan and New York licence will remain suspended. This can only legally happen, if actually have the potential of having points be applied to your license.

It is important to know that convictions in other jurisdictions, can revisit you in your home jurisdiction, with all of the consequences associated with that conviction, in your home jurisdiction. This could include licence suspensions, fines, accumulation of demerit points and auto insurance increases.

On May 18, 2010, it was announced that there exists an outstanding amount of a billion dollars in unpaid traffic tickets in the Province of Ontario. Ontario Legislative Assembly’s NDP M.P.P, Mr. Peter Kormos, said the following, (upon hearing the news of the deficit in Ontario, due to motorists not paying their traffic ticket fines) If we have this problem, others do too … It is in everyone’s interests to develop reciprocal agreements.” Governments have come to realize that unless they have solid legal grounds to collect on unpaid traffic fines from other jurisdictions, any effort expended to collect on unpaid traffic fines, will utlimately end in futility and waste precious resources in the process.

The following describes each Province and Territory and some of the Reciprocal Agreements that they have with each Province, Territory, State and other Countries. Due to the fact that reciprocal agreements are constantly evolving and being negotiated and signed off and/or being amended/modified, the list is only current as of the published date of this post:

    “International Driver Permit”
    Road signs are written in Dutch in the Flemish region.

    “International Driver Permit” Canadians living in Belgium should be aware that neither a Canadian driver’s licence nor an International Driver Permit (IDP) are recognized. Only an Alberta, New Brunswick, Ontario or Quebec driver’s licence can be exchanged for a Belgian driver’s licence. Residents of provinces other than Alberta, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec should contact their provincial licence authorities to see whether they plan to negotiate reciprocal recognition arrangements with Belgium. To obtain a Belgian driver’s licence, you must pass all local courses and tests, both theoretical and practical. It may take from six months to a year to be able to drive legally and unaccompanied.
