Introduction to Criminal Negligence

An individual may be guilty of criminal negligence if the act is committed while violating a particular statute. For example, a statute requiring the operation of an automobile at a limited speed in a school zone during school hours is violated when the car is driven at an excessive speed during those hours. If a child is injured as a result of such violation, the driver of the car is liable civilly for damages, and the driver is also liable criminally to fine or imprisonment for negligence.” (1)
