As of September 1, there are tougher provincial penalties for careless driving and the endangering of pedestrians. Drivers convicted of careless driving causing bodily harm or death will face: fines from $2,000 to $50,000, six demerit points, licence suspension of up to five years, up to two years in jail. Penalties will also increase for drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians at crossovers, school crossings and crosswalks. The maximum penalty will increase to $1,000 and four demerit points. Drivers must yield the entire roadway at pedestrian crossovers, school crossings, and other locations where there is a crossing guard, and cannot continue driving until pedestrians have finished crossing the road completely.
