Can you provide some more information? Such as:
- Time of day
- Type of road, speed limit on said road
- your speed
+ anything else you can think of that would explain your situation better.
And maybe you should repost it in point form, your run on sentence is hard to read. FYI, having snow tires doesn't mean you can drive normally in bad weather conditions, 4wd doesn't make you better in the snow. Everyone I know always jokes about seeing 4wd trucks off in the ditch. Once you loose control with 4wd, good luck getting it back in control, and good luck stopping suddenly.
I was headed southbound on hyw 62 south of bancroft 2 lane highway posted at 80 kmh I pulled out to pass and got to 85 kmh completed pass pulled back in and slowed to 70 kmh The road was lightly snow covered after being plowed and salted
It was snowing very lightly at the time
Looking back i would say it was bad judgement to pass all three cars at once
I'd suggest you pick option 3 (trial option) and request disclosure, to see what evidence the officer has. You might be able to get it dropped to a lesser charge. A paralegal would be able to give you a better idea, most of them do free consultations, in person or over the phone. I seriously suggest you talk to one, as a careless driving charge can seriously fubar your insurance rates and driving record (speaking from experience here). I've only dealt with the Toronto courts for my tickets, so I can't really say what might happen in the region you got charged in.
