Careless Driving

Mar 29, 2022

Careless Driving Sec 130

Careless driving falls below the minimum standard expected of a careful driver and it includes driving without reasonable consideration for other road users. Dangerous driving includes behaviour that could potentially endanger yourself or other drivers.

A conviction for careless driving involves serious penalties: 6 demerit points, a fine between $400 and $2,000, possible jail time (up to 6 months), and licence suspension for up to 2 years. It is one of the “most popular” traffic violations in Ontario.
