The Government is really trying to make a point with this law, a lot of trouble with street racing in larger metro areas.

Dangerous Driving - No bodily harm or death:

Before: Summary conviction or imprisonment up to five years

Now: the same

(A summary conviction is reserved for the least serious offences in the Criminal Code. In general, it means a fine of up to $2,000 or six months in jail - or both.)



Dangerous Driving causing Bodily Harm

Before: Up to 10 years in prison

Now: Up to 14 years in prison



Dangerous Driving causing Death:

Before: Up to 14 years in prison.

Now: Potential for lifetime imprisonment



Criminal Negligence causing Bodily Harm:

Before: Up to 10 years in prison.

Now: Up to 14 years in prison.
