At Any Traffic Tickets we have a high success rate of defending

careless driving charges in Ontario and specialize in the courts of Cambridge, Kitchener, Guelph, and Woodstock. We also defend all traffic offences from the highway traffic act and always offer a free consultation.
 
The careless driving charge is stated as follows in the highway traffic act:
 
130.  Every person is guilty of the offence of driving carelessly who drives a vehicle or street car on a highway without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the highway and on conviction is liable to a fine of not less than $400 and not more than $2,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both, and in addition his or her licence or permit may be suspended for a period of not more than two years. 2009, c. 5, s. 41.

 

If you receive a careless driving charge and do nothing about it, you will be convicted. If you start the court process and do not show up for your trial date you will also be convicted under section 9.1 of the Provincial Offences Act.

 

Section 9.1 under the P.O.A. states the following:

Failure to appear at trial


9.1 (1) A defendant is deemed to not wish to dispute the charge where the defendant has been
issued a notice of the time and place of trial and fails to appear at the time and plac
e appointed for the trial. 2009, c. 33, Sched. 4, s. 1 (14
).

 

Careless driving is one of the more serious charges under the Highway Traffic Act and has serious consequences to go with it. If you have received a careless driving charge you should set up an appointment with Any Traffic Tickets for a free consultation to find out what your options are.
