Dangerous driving is a serious offence under the Criminal Code. The penalties for a dangerous driving conviction are therefore quite severe. If you are convicted of this offence, you will automatically receive a minimum one-year driving prohibition in British Columbia, under the Motor Vehicle Act. You may also receive a Canada-wide driving prohibition under the Criminal Code, a monetary fine, and, in more serious cases, a jail sentence.
