Dangerous driving is a serious offence in Saskatchewan and carries severe penalties. If you are facing charges for dangerous driving, it is essential to hire a criminal defence lawyer who has experience with fighting these charges. We can help you understand what options are available to you and how we can assist in finding the best outcome for your case.
If you are charged with dangerous driving, it is important to understand what the charge means and how it will affect your future. A dangerous driving charge is distinct from other traffic violations under the Traffic Safety Act because it is a criminal charge. Dangerous driving charges can be laid for various reasons, including excessive speed, driving while fatigued or any situation where your driving could be seen as a danger to others. If convicted of dangerous driving, you will lose your license for a minimum of one year and face up to 10 years in prison. If you injure or cause the death of someone, the penalties are much harsher. You will face a minimum fine of $1000, lose your license for life and could face up to life in prison.
