We Fight Your Stunt Driving Charge
When an Officer has charged you with speeding 50km or more over the posted limit, it is considered “Stunt Driving”. There are a few things that will happen.
- The Officer will issue a Summons to appear in court.
- The Officer will request you surrender your license.
- The Officer will impound the vehicle for up to 7 days and for which you will be required to pay all associated costs.

Once the 7 days expire, the license and vehicle can be returned. In addition to the impoundment fee to the vehicle owner, there will be a reinstatement fee for the driver.
A date to appear in court, solely to set a date for trial, will be written on the Summons to Appear by the Officer. You or your legal representatives are required to appear in court. You may choose to appear in court alone, or hire/retain professional representation, like a TicketSave licensed paralegal, to fight on your behalf.
In addition, the court may impose a custodial sentence of up to 6 months of jail. Further, your license may be suspended for up to 2 years, or all three punishments; in addition a subsequent conviction can render a suspended for up to 10 years.
