Driving While Disqualified
In Canada, when an offender who operates a motor vehicle while disqualified from doing so, the Criminal Code of Canada considers it as a serious criminal offence to disobey an order imposed by a judge. He is guilty of an offence punishable and liable for imprisonment for not more than 5 years.
Flight from Police
An individual, who doesn’t stop the motor vehicle promptly while being pursued by a police officer, can be given an attendance notice without arrest or a summons. A criminal charge of flight from police may include either a misdemeanour or felony penalties, depending on the circumstances.
Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle
Anyone who operates a motor vehicle in a manner that is dangerous to the public is guilty under dangerous driving. The punishment for this kind of offence can include imprisonment for up to 5 years if there is no bodily harm or death. If the offence caused any bodily harm, the imprisonment term increases to 10 years, and if death is caused, the maximum term of jail is 14 years.
