Where motorists face proceedings as a result of their driving falling below the required standard, the offences they face can range from careless driving right through to causing death by dangerous driving or indeed even motor manslaughter. In all cases there are consequences; in some their liberty is at stake.
If you have been charged, summoned or are under investigation for any matters arising from your use of a vehicle on the road, it is recommended that you contact a solicitor specialising in motoring law at the earliest possible stage.
Categorising Dangerous and Careless Driving
The heading ‘dangerous driving’ actually covers a range of driving offences, including:
- Dangerous driving of itself;
- Causing death by dangerous driving;
- Motor manslaughter;
- Careless and inconsiderate driving;
- Causing death by careless driving when under the influence of drink or drugs;
- Causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving;
