Ontario's New Stunt Driving Law

Ontario is cracking down on high-risk driving with stiffer penalties for stunt driving, street racing and aggressive driving offences, with new laws going to effect this week. 

The Moving Ontarians More Safely Act, also known as the MOMS Act, was introduced in the legislature on April 26 and will roll out in stages on July 1. 

Under the new legislation, drivers will face longer licence suspensions, and have their vehicles impounded for twice as long as they would currently. 

“Both as Minister of Transportation and a parent to driving-aged teens, I am extremely concerned by the rising numbers of young drivers in Ontario caught stunt driving, street racing and driving aggressively,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation, in a news release. 

“Driving is a privilege and those who threaten the safety of others have no place on our roads,” said Mulroney.

The Ontario government says the number of driver’s licence suspensions handed out for street racing and stunt driving increased 130 per cent between 2013 and 2019, and rose by an additional 52 per cent between March and August 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Nearly five per cent of drivers suspended during this period had one or more previous suspensions in the previous five years.

The new penalties under the MOMS Act include:

  • Increasing the roadside driver’s licence suspension and vehicle impoundment periods for drivers caught street racing/stunt driving from seven days each to a 30-day driver’s licence suspension and a 14-day vehicle impoundment.
  • Introducing escalating post-conviction driver’s licence suspensions for drivers convicted of street racing/stunt driving:
    • For a first offence, a minimum of one to three years
    • For a second offence, a minimum of three to 10 years
    • For a third offence, a lifetime suspension that may be reduced at a later date to be established by regulation, and
    • For fourth and subsequent offences, a lifetime driver’s licence suspension.

The legislation also lowers the speed threshold for stunt driving charges form 50 km/h to 40 km/h or more above the speed limit on roads where the speed limit is less than 80 km/h, and introduces a default speed limit of 80 km/h on a highway not within a local municipality or a built-up area.

 

How will municipalities decide where to place the cameras?

Municipalities are taking a data-driven approach to identifying where to place ASE in their communities. Municipalities across Ontario capture speed data in their communities on a regular basis and this data is now being used to identify exactly where speed is a factor in road and pedestrian safety in school zones and community safety zones, and where ASE can be implemented to help make a difference for those municipalities who choose to implement it.

How will drivers know that a location is equipped with ASE?

ASE is about safety and transparency and clear signage will be posted within each school zone and community safety zone where a system is in place and active. There will also be signs installed prior to the issuance of tickets to let motorists know that these systems will be installed in the near future.

Using technology that supports road safety can help to alter driver behaviour and enforce speed limits in school zones and community safety zones. ASE is one approach to protecting children and other vulnerable road users.

How do we know ASE will be effective?

Several other jurisdictions across North America, and indeed the world, have relied on ASE as a speed enforcement tool with great success. The use of ASE systems has resulted in better speed compliance, fewer collisions and less severity in the collisions that do occur.

Is ASE a mandatory program for municipalities?
No. Each municipality in Ontario is determining, based on the needs of its community, whether to implement ASE.

Examples include:

  1. Quebec, in 2016, reported its speed enforcement program reduced average speeds by 13.3 km/h and reduced crashes by 15 to 42 per cent at ASE sites.

  2. Saskatchewan, which saw an overall reduction of speed in school zones (specifically in Saskatoon, Regina and Moose Jaw) following the piloting of an ASE program with 56 per cent of Saskatchewan residents wanting the program to continue and 93 per cent of those wanting it to continue, also wanting it to expand. An evaluation of the pilot also showed that average vehicle speeds fell by up to 17 per cent and speed-related casualty collisions by 63 per cent, resulting in 51 per cent fewer injuries.

  3. New York City, which has one of the most extensive and robust ASE programs in North America. During its 140-camera pilot program, the presence of cameras reduced speeding by 63 per cent and pedestrian injuries by 23 per cent. In 2018, the program was reinstituted.
