My question iss: do I have any chance to have this ‘careless driving’ charge reduced to lesser one, for example 'Change lane not in safety' and asking advice how to act: go to trial or request early resolution...


If there's no accident and nobody was hurt, I'd say it's pretty much a certainty you'll be offered a plea deal.

If you’re content pleading down the charge to something less serious (i.e. change lane not in safety), I’d skip hiring a paralegal for now. Attend a resolution meeting and see what the Crown is willing to offer.

I’d only spend money on a paralegal if you want to fight the charge outright or don't get offered a plea deal for some reason.



Sad: Stanton's right on the money with his advice here. And Viper1's is way off.

You said you looked . So the lights could not have been on.
I have seen cops do that a lot (no lights race forward)
If the cop was not in an emergency situation the cop was careless.

Explore how to charge them.(the cop was in the wrong if no light's flashing)

Might want to get disclosier first .

the same time another car (2 cars behind of me), also changed line for passing, but he accelerated much faster and I blocked the line for him.
The worst part is it was police SUV. He pulled me over and I got ticket for ‘Careless Driving’, $400.


This is curious. Because I thought the police are required to also obey speed limits? If he changed lanes into left lane and started accelerating above the speed limit which ended up cutting you off in a way, well isn't that speeding and careless on the cops end? If he had had lights on then it should be ok because the police is then trying to get to a emergency call etc..and you would see it most likely and be required to Yield.

So does this mean that police can speed without having their lights on?

police are exempt from the speed limit (HTA 128 exemptions)
