Dangerous and Careless Driving
Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Dangerous Driving, Careless Driving
Dangerous driving or dangerous operation of a motor vehicle is generally considered the most significant and serious of driving offences and quite often could mean penalties and sentences where a driver could face a term of imprisonment as part of their sentence and punishment. It is crucially important because of this, that you don’t turn up to court without talking to our lawyers and solicitors and knowing first what to expect as an outcome.
Penalties for dangerous driving depend on the offence and if it is a first offence, and whether there are any circumstances of ‘aggravation’ were involved such as whether the driver was intoxicated or hurt or even killed someone due to their driving. But they can involve significant terms of imprisonment of up to 14 years for the most serious offences. Also, if you have been convicted of one of the ‘aggravating’ offences, convicted on 2 earlier occasions or have hurt someone, then you can expect to be sent to jail as part of the punishment.
