Careless driving of motor vehicles is a public safety issue that affects the well-being of all highway users, including pedestrians, cyclists, and motor vehicle operators and their passengers. In addition, careless driving affects people in their own yards as well as on public property such as parks, and is also a cause of damage to public and private property. Further, careless driving occurs on neighbourhood streets, regional roads, 400-series highways, public and private parking lots, and seemingly just about anywhere throughout the province that motor vehicles can be driven.
