Understanding Reciprocity Between States and Provinces

There is a reciprocity agreement between most U.S. states to report individuals who are charged and convicted of traffic and driving offenses. New York also reports traffic violations to Canadian provinces. Computerized systems have made this process much more efficient than in the past. If you are a commercial driver or if your offense involves your commercial driver's license, it is particularly likely that your arrest will be reported and action taken promptly.
