WHY SHOULD POINTTS™ FIGHT MY TRAFFIC TICKET?
♦ Protect Your Driving Record ♦ Avoid Increase in Insurance ♦ Protect Your Driver’s License
If you pay a speeding ticket, you’re automatically convicted – and that conviction appears on your driving record. When Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) looks at convictions, the points will automatically affect your driver’s rating, which means you will be paying more for your license and your insurance. Once you start to accumulate convictions and points, MPI may have you take a defensive driving course or a show cause hearing, where they may suspend your license. Fighting your ticket is fighting the possibility of a license suspension, increased cost for your license and insurance.
LET POINTTS™ SAVE YOU MERITS & HEFTY INSURANCE PREMIUMS
Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) has announced that it has requested a 2.7% overall rate increase for the 2018/19 insurance year. Your position on the DSR scale, which has 36 levels, depends on your driving record. Driving safely moves you up the scale, which saves you money– up to 33 per cent savings on vehicle premiums and up to an additional $30 savings on driver’s licence premiums. The highest-risk drivers pay up to $2,500 for their driver’s licence premium.
Under the DSR system, moving down the scale will now cost you more. Driver’s licence premiums have increased and unsafe driving will cost you anywhere from $100 – $2,500.
