Also, check out this SAAQ pamphlet - it is TWO years on your record so I think in your case you are already out of the woodwork.
And it is zone-dependent :
• by 40 km/h or more in a zone of 60 km/h or less;
• by 50 km/h or more in a zone of more than 60 km/h but not more than 90 km/h;
• by 60 km/h or more in a zone of 100 km/h or more, not 50+ like in ON.
Also, you are now on 10-year "probation" for another excessive speeding charge (same as in ON)
The officer didn't impound my vehicle, in fact he just let me drive back to Ontario and told me I wasn't allowed too drive in Quebec for 7 days (Admin suspension) but he still let me turn my vehicle around and leave on my own accord.
It's an interesting predicament either way, but like you've mentioned before; It's been over 2 years since the date I plead guilty and still hasn't showed up on my record, it likely won't in the next 10 mo, you never know, either way I've gotten lucky as if it does, I still managed to pay 2 years of cheaper insurance, and will only have too pay a few months of higher insurance if it comes on my record.
