Inquiry: Last week I was in a minor collision where I was charged with careless  driving. My driving record was spotless until last week, with the  exception of a couple of minor speeding tickets years and years ago. What  are my chances of getting the charge reduced to a lessor charge or thrown  out entirely? Thank you.

Response:  A charge of CARELESS DRIVING is one of the highest demerit point penalties that can be issued (6 demerit points).  We would need to speak with you in more detail about what occured to be able to provide any substantial feedback.  Generally we are able to at least have the charge reduced to a lesser offence and in some cases we are able to have the charge eliminated outright.  We offer a no-cost initial review of cases via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299.
