Ontario Street Racing Laws
In Ontario, anything greater than 50 kilometres over the speed limit is considered to be street racing, which could be considered a criminal act, depending on the circumstances. These races usually occur between two or more vehicles on highways or rural roads that have long stretches without street signals, stop signs or lights.
Street racers are often not injured in the accidents they cause. However, their actions indirectly cause crashes of other vehicles. Drivers trying to avoid street racers often perform risky avoidance manoeuvres, which can result in jackknifing accidents or other forms of multi-car collisions.
Accident Benefits and Compensation
Since street racing can be considered a criminal act, there may be different types of compensation available for those who have been injured in a resulting crash. This means a potential of collecting more compensation than an individual may be entitled to in a more routine motor vehicle accident.
McLeish Orlando LLP makes certain that all available sources for funding are accessed. We work with experts, such as engineers and accident reconstructionists, to assist in gathering specific evidence that proves the other driver liable. Our lawyers also gather testimony and work with witnesses during the investigation process.
