Careless driving is a charge that is most often given to someone who has been involved in a collision. It is a very broad charge that covers a wide array of driving situations. A brief description of the charge is "driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention, or without a reasonable consideration for other people using the highway".
Even one conviction for careless driving can result in an increase in your insurance rates, or worse, you may be identified as "high-risk driver".
The penalties for a careless driving conviction are as follows:
- Six demerit points
- Minimum fine of $400 and no more than $2,000
- Possible suspension of your driver's licence for a period of no more than two years
- Possible term of imprisonment for up to six months
