Protect your driving privileges and record. Call today for more information on what your legal options may be to defend against charges of careless driving.
Careless driving is one of the most common traffic violations we see here in Ontario. Also sometimes referred to as ‘reckless driving’, Canadians may not always know exactly what is defined under these terms. According to the Ontario Highway Traffic Act, it could be mean numerous things. In its most basic definition, a charge of careless driving is on someone who is considered to have driven recklessly without due care and attention, and/or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road. Within Ontario, the consequences of a careless driving charge may or may not include up to 6 demerit points (for sure on conviction) on your license, a $400 fine, imprisonment up to six months, possible license suspension for up to two years, and huge consequences on your auto insurance rates.
A huge part of what we do is defend against careless driving charges, ensuring the rights and freedoms of Canadians are being protected every step of the way. When we go to court with a client facing a careless driving charge, we come equipped with everything we need to defend and challenge the evidence. Through our knowledge of the law, we provide the utmost protection against convictions and driving prohibitions. Though there are no guarantees, we have years of experience in mounting successful defences against careless driving charges, representing individuals across the province.
Just imagine the impact of losing your license, or having to go to jail, or seeing your auto insurance rates shoot up. For many Canadians, these are things that they cannot afford to have happen. Add to that the complex legal processes that come with attempting to fight a charge like this and most citizens end up not knowing where to turn. By hiring our legal services, we can help simplify things for you. Seeing a conviction on any offence – including careless driving – will have an impact. With recent changes in the provincial law, careless driving convictions are getting stricter, and at the expense of those who may not have the knowledge and legal experience to defend themselves. We don’t want you to go it alone. Give us a call.
