X-Copper has successfully represented hundreds of clients who have been charged with Stunt Driving.
This charge is commonly referred to as “racing”. The most common reason that a stunt driving charge is issued is because the driver of the motor vehicle has been caught travelling at 50 km or more above the posted speed limit. You do not necessarily have to be racing another vehicle in order to be charged with stunt driving.
You can also be charged with this offence for performing a stunt while driving, such as “squealing” your tires or trying to make an extremely dangerous maneuver. In an attempt to make the roads in Ontario as safe as possible, the penalties for Stunt Driving have been made very severe.
Once you have been charged with Stunt Driving you will immediately be issued a seven day roadside suspension of your drivers licence. Your vehicle will also be impounded for seven days, at your own expense.
Upon Conviction of Stunt Driving the penalties are:
- 6 demerit points
- $2,000.00 - $10,000.00 fine
- A possible suspension of your driver's licence for a period of no more than 2 years
- A possible term of imprisonment for up to 6 months
If convicted of Stunt Driving, your insurance could be affected for up to 3 years or more. Often even one conviction for Stunt driving will result in an increase in your insurance by thousands of dollars per year. Some insurance companies will not even insure you once you have been convicted of Stunt driving.
How can X-Copper help you beat a Stunt Driving Charge?
As you may have heard in recent news, there have been a few cases where the charge of Stunt Driving has been deemed unconstitutional. This means that the penalties for this charge violate your rights according to The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. With these recent decisions X-Copper is now filing Charter Motions under section 7 with all Stunt Driving cases. This gives us a better chance of getting the charges against you completely withdrawn, or getting a better resolution.
