SGI has launched their Traffic Safety Spotlight for November, and they and local law enforcement are on the lookout for those who are driving with a suspended license or an registered vehicles.

“People don’t get suspended without cause," shared Earl Cameron, Executive Vice-President of the Auto Fund. "They may have their driving privileges revoked due to impaired driving or other dangerous driving behaviours, which can put other road users at risk. To anyone who makes the bad decision to drive without a valid license or insurance, our message is simple: Do not risk it.”

Tyler McMurchy, Manager of Media Relations with SGI added that driving a vehicle that is not properly registered vehicle, means you don't have insurance.

"What we're telling people is you do not want to risk that. If you get in a collision, you could be responsible for the thousands of dollars that result. Even a small fender bender can be very expensive and you do not want to be personally responsible for that. So it's always important to make sure that your registration is up to date."

"Suspended drivers, there's also going to be a very strong focus on that as well. If you are a suspended driver, you are considered not legally allowed to drive.  The consequences for that are severe as well, ranging all the way up to Criminal Code charges. 

Some of the consequences for driving while disqualified include fines, jail time and a minimum 30-day vehicle seizure.
