An allegation of dangerous driving, if resulting in a conviction, carries serious consequences. It can result in a criminal record, lengthy driving prohibitions and even jail time.
“Dangerous driving” may not involve an accident or collision – and may not involve alcohol or drugs. There is no strict formula. Dangerous driving is an offence that a person may be charged with under an umbrella of circumstances, including:
- failing to obey road-signs
- driving over curbs or road lanes
- swerving, or
- driving-in-too-close-of-proximity with other vehicles.
In order to prove dangerous driving, the Crown must show that the accused person “operated a motor vehicle in a manner that was dangerous to the public in all circumstances” and that they “ought to have known that this manner of driving was dangerous”.
