That all on the first offense with no other points on his license.

So it looks like there are four possible charges now:

1. the ticket
2. driver penalty point premium (at least $210 per year if you have more than 3 points)
3. driver risk premium (at least $384/year for up to 3 years)
4. insurance premium penalties (similar to the surcharges we had before for having more than 3 points but now it also affects collision and comprehensive)

PSA: take it easy out there and if you go faster then at least make you don't go over by more than 40kmh.
I got the same the other weekend.

You only get one of either the DPP or DVP whichever is higher. For example, If I am convicted on this latest ticket (hell yeah im fighting that shit) I'd have to pay something like 360 under DPP or 380 under DVP so I pay the higher amount.

All in if Im convicted this excessive speeding ticket will cost at least $2k, so I am going to get a laser jammer and detector as the next time I get popped it's a 30 day impound and the chances of me changing my behaviour is minimal.
