A careless driving charge is generally given to an individual who has been involved in a collision or acting carelessly when driving a motor vehicle.
Even one careless driving conviction can result in a significant increase in your insurance rate, or worst yet, your insurance company could classify you as a “high risk driver”. Careless driving is a charge that covers a diverse array of traffic and driving situations.
It is a very broad charge that encompasses a wide range of driving situations. Retaining legal representation for a careless driving charge is essential. The penalties of a careless driving conviction are quite severe.
The penalties for a careless driving conviction in Alberta are as follows:
- 6 demerit points
- Fine of $543
- Possible suspension of your driver's licence
- Possible term of imprisonment
