TORONTO — Ontario has tough new standards for dangerous driving.

The changes took effect on September 1 and include tougher penalties for careless driving and endangering pedestrians.

Drivers convicted of careless driving causing bodily harm or death will now face fines up to $50,000, six demerit points, a driver’s license suspension up to five years and up to two years in jail.

Penalties also increased for drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks – to a fine of $1000 and four demerit points.

Minister of Transportation John Yakabuski says the new standards send a message to the public that dangerous driving in Ontario will not be tolerated.
