How Chris Rudd Solicitors Can Help You

What You Should Know About Dangerous Driving

What Is Classed As Dangerous Driving

The act of driving in a manner that falls far below that expected of a competent and careful driver and hence puts the life of the driver and the lives of other road users at risk.

Some examples of dangerous driving are:

  • Excessive speed.
  • Offence committed whilst driver was disqualified / had no licence and/or insurance.
  • Competitive driving /racing.
  • Previous convictions, poor driving record and disregard for earlier sentences imposed.
  • Disregard for other pedestrians or road users in the vicinity.
  • Prolonged episode of bad driving.
  • Causing death or injury by dangerous driving.

What Is The Penalty For Dangerous Driving

If you are hit with a dangerous driving charge, it could lead to imprisonment as well as a lengthy driving ban and having to take an extended re-test. The court will also take into account other factors, such as:

  • The impact a driving ban would have on your personal circumstances.
  • Previous driving offences you have committed.
  • Your individual character.
