Rohana Rezel started this petition to Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada

A careless and negligent driver just sped through a red light and killed an 11-month old baby while in her father's arms. The innocent child is yet another victim of careless and negligent drivers who know that they will face no serious legal consequences for their heinous acts.

The drivers who killed a 16-year-old girl due to careless driving got away with just a $1,600 fine.

The driver who killed a cyclist while driving down the wrong way after a night of partying and gambling walked away with just a $1,800 fine and one year driving prohibition.

It is said that in Canada, if you want to kill someone and get away with it, all you need to do is hit them with a car.

It's time to make negligent and careless driving a criminal offence. If we don't act now, many more children will die under the wheels of vehicles operated by careless and negligent drivers.

Please update Section 320 of the Criminal Code to make driving without due care and attention that causes death a criminal offence.
