Two driving charges withdrawn at Provinicial Offences Court: Tony’s Case


Careless driving contrary to Section 130 of the Provincial Highway Traffic Act

Driving a motor vehicle without a license contrary to Section 32 (1) of Provincial Highway Traffic Act


A car stopped at a red light on a Saturday night in Ottawa was rear-ended by a car that my client, Tony, was driving. After colliding with the vehicle, Tony dislodged his car from the other car and fled the scene. The driver and passengers of the car that had been hit were not injured and were able to provide Tony’s license plate number to police. Police arrested Tony at his home after he could not provide any reasonable excuse for leaving the scene of an accident.


After I met with the Crown, it was agreed that these charges would be dropped at the Provincial Offences Court in Ottawa.
