It is time to pay any outstanding Windsor/Essex Provincial Offences Act tickets.

Earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic, most POA timelines were suspended. This meant that if you received a ticket after February 1st, 2020, there were no repercussions if you did not follow the instructions on the back of your ticket.

The city of Windsor says that this is no longer the case. If you received a ticket after February 1st, 2020, and you did not follow the instructions on the back of your ticket, you are required to do so as of February 26th, 2021.

Failing to follow those instructions means you will be, or may have already been, convicted of the charge, and the full amount owing plus any associated court costs will have to be paid within 30 days of your conviction.

Once the 30 days from conviction expire, if you still have not paid what is owing, you will have your licence placed on ministry suspension until all restitutions are made, and you will be responsible for any extra costs to have a licence reinstated.

Editors Note:  An earlier veneration of this story said this was for parking thickets.  It is for speeding, careless driving, or not wearing your seat belt tickets as well as failing to surrender your insurance card or possessing a false or invalid insurance card.
