What are Examples of Driving Offenses?
Driving offenses can range from minor traffic tickets, to more serious charges, such as dangerous driving or criminal negligence causing death. Some other driving offenses include:
- Fail to Remain – When a person involved in an accident does not remain at the scene of that accident, or fails to return immediately. The penalties could be harsh, including time in prison, seven demerit points, suspension of driver’s license for up to two years, and a fine.
- Driving Under Suspension – This offense applies to any person that is driving without a valid driver’s license. Even if this is your first time being charged with this offense, you could face time in prison, a fine, or a longer driver’s license suspension. If this is not your first time being charged with driving under suspension, the sentencing could be more severe.
- Dangerous Driving Causing Bodily Harm – This offense occurs when someone has sustained injuries as a result of your dangerous driving. You could face 10 years in prison; this driving offense could be placed on your criminal record.
