Careless driving is another common form of prosecution in respect of “bad driving”. This can be dealt with in all types of Court. The minimum endorsement in respect of careless driving is 3 points and depending on which court is dealing with the matter a driver can be disqualified.
If a person is charged with Dangerous Driving then the penalties are more severe. The driver will be disqualified for a minimum period of 12 months, fined and forced to re-sit the extended driving test after the period of disqualification is up.
NB. If a driver is caught speeding at excessive speed then they can be prosecuted for dangerous driving.
Dangerous Driving also carries the potential for a period of imprisonment depending upon the nature of the driving.
If you are facing either of the above charges, then it is essential that you obtain expert legal representation. At Euan Robertson Solicitors, we have a successful track record of these cases.
