Home | Criminal Driving
Criminal driving is defined by a set of specific driving behaviours that are considered to be sufficiently dangerous or objectionable to be dealt with under the Canadian Criminal Code.
A conviction for a criminal driving offence can result in a variety of severe penalties, including a fine with no maximum limit to life imprisonment. This conviction can negatively impact every aspect of your life, including your career, home, family, and finances, especially if the charges are severe.
Potentially, you may also face a statutory license suspension and, in some cases, be required to complete license reinstatement conditions. However, you deserve a fair and reasonable outcome regardless of the circumstances, and Martin G. Schulz & Associates are here to ensure you do. If you are in need of a team of criminal driving lawyers by your side, we’re the team for you.
What Are My Rights?
If you’ve been accused of a driving offence, remember that you have the following rights:
- You have the right to stay silent! You are not required to answer the police officers’ questions until you have spoken to a lawyer.
- Your passengers have the right to remain silent. No passengers in your vehicle are required to answer questions or provide identification.
- You have the right to say ‘NO’ to a vehicle search. Unless there is a warrant, you are not required to let a police officer search your vehicle.
- You have the right to lawyer representation and to defend against the charges against you.
