Stunt Driving Defence Lawyer
Stunt driving is a crime carrying serious consequences in Ontario. If you are convicted, you face:
A fine of up to $10,000
A jail sentence of up to six months
The suspension of your driver’s licence for up to two years for a first offence, 10 years for subsequent offences
Impoundment of your vehicle
The potential penalties upon conviction are serious, so don’t consider pleading guilty until you learn about your defence options. Contact Neuberger & Partners LLP for a no-charge consultation about your case.
At Neuberger & Partners LLP, we provide vigorous, results-oriented representation for people accused of stunt driving, dangerous driving and other offences in Ontario. Our lawyers understand the many defences available in such cases, and we will work diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
Assertive Defence for People Charged With Stunt Driving in Ontario
Driving more than 50 kilometres above the speed limit is considered stunt driving, which is a violation of Section 172 of Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act. Other driving behaviours can also be the basis for a charge of stunt driving, including:
Interfering with the movement of another vehicle
Lingering too long in the oncoming traffic lane while passing a vehicle
Doing a “wheelie” on a motorcycle
There may be one or more defences that could possibly be employed for each of these behaviours. For example, in a case involving speeding, our lawyers may be able to successfully challenge the accuracy of the police estimation of the speed you were driving — enabling us to reduce the charge to a regular speeding violation carrying less serious penalties.*
