Careless Driving

Driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place to a standard below that expected of a careful and competent driver is a criminal offence. The court has a discretion to disqualify any person convicted of this offence and can impose a number of penalty points ranging from a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 9. Careless driving cases often involve complex evidence and legal argument aimed at challenging whether the driving alleged was indeed careless. We have the necessary experience to conduct these trials with a view to avoiding conviction.
