Dangerous Driving Solicitors

The offence of dangerous driving is committed if it can be shown that the defendants driving fell far below the standard expected of a ´competent and careful driver´ and it would be obvious to a ´competent and careful driver´ that driving in that way would be dangerous. An example of this type of driving may be: -

  • Racing on the roads
  • Ignoring traffic lights and road signs
  • Knowingly driving a vehicle that is in a dangerous condition (no brakes for example)
  • Driving with a load that is a danger to other road users

Looking for Death By Dangerous Driving?

The section this offence is charged under and the recommended maximum sentence for dangerous driving, on conviction, is as follows: -

Section 2 Road Traffic Act 1988

2 years imprisonment and/or a fine, disqualification and extended driving test must be taken

A prosecution for dangerous driving can be brought against an individual based on the motor vehicles state of disrepair if it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that driving the vehicle in such a state would be dangerous.

A dangerous driving charge should be taken seriously as if found guilty a sentence of up to 2 years imprisonment or a fine (or both) and a disqualification can be given.
