Hello Hadi,

Careless Driving is a very serious offence and must be defended. Failing to stop at a stop sign should not in-and-of itself amount to Careless Driving unless there were extenuating circumstances which made the driving careless, such as doing so while distracted by a cell phone. Careless is a broadly worded charge and can apply in any circumstances where a driver is not driving with due care and attention or consideration for other users of the roadway. Please contact our office and we will defend you.

Best Regards,


Subject Stop Sign
Name Hadi
Inquiry I was ticketed for CAD490 for passing a stop sign without stopping. i did
slow down but didnt stop completely. on the ticket it also says that the
offence was Careless Driving. My question is, shouldnt the ticket say “Not
Stopping completely at a Stop sign” as the offence and can i do anything
about this ticket?
