Calgary dangerous driving lawyer

A criminal driving offence is essentially any driving related infraction that involves criminal prosecution.  Certainly the most common criminal driving offence is impaired driving and related crimes, such as blowing over the legal limit or refusing to blow. The Criminal Code of Canada includes a variety of other driving offences, such as dangerous driving, hit and run, evade police and may even encapsulate charges such as criminal negligence or vehicular assault.

If you have been charged with a criminal driving offence, it is paramount that you retain a lawyer who fully appreciates the evidence and all available defences.  Successfully resisting a criminal driving prosecution requires a lawyer who not only understands the law, but has enough pragmatic experience to grasp the difference between criminal driving and other conduct that may only be a transgression of the Traffic Safety Act or perhaps even innocent driving behaviour that is neither criminal nor quasi-criminal.
