In Ontario, Careless Driving is a traffic offence under section 130 of the Highway Traffic Act (HTA).
Careless driving is defined in the HTA as:
Every person is guilty of the offence of driving carelessly who drives a vehicle or street car on a highway without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the highway.
The Highway Traffic Act (HTA) is a provincial statute, meaning it’s a law only for the Province of Ontario. Provincial statutes are not criminal offences, and convictions do not result in a criminal record.
