Criminal Code driving offences besides impaired driving can lead to jail, licence loss, and significant increases in the cost of motor vehicle insurance. Dangerous driving, fail to stop at the scene of an accident, flee police and drive disqualified can all produce such consequences. Conviction of comparable offences under provincial law – careless driving, fail to remain at the scene of an accident, fail to stop for police and drive under suspension – can also entail severe results. For example, if you’re caught driving without insurance the minimum fine for a first offence is $5,000. For driving without insurance a second time within a five-year period, fines start at $10,000.
