Until recently, careless driving only attracted penalty points. Now a moment’s inattention which results in a fatal incident can lead to a prison sentence. Dangerous driving has always been a serious Criminal Offence, more so if fatal consequences follow. It is important to have expert help, advice and assistance at the earliest possible stage in any police investigation as they are often complex and carried out by a specialist unit.
The difference between being convicted of careless driving or dangerous driving is often very technical. A conviction for dangerous driving not only carries the risk of imprisonment but also compulsory disqualification and the need to take a retest. As careless driving carries between 3 and 9 penalty points it is important that your case is properly presented so that the court impose the least possible number of points. A conviction for either offence will lead to increased insurance premiums.
