We have previously written about Dangerous Driving in relation to adverse weather conditions. This article looks in more detail at the offence of dangerous driving and how we may be able to assist those being accused of it.
When Driving Becomes Dangerous
There is a specific offence of dangerous driving, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 2 years.
If that driving is a cause of someone's death, the maximum sentence rises to one of 14 years.
In each case there are minimum disqualification periods, very lengthy actual disqualifications and insurance premiums which will be significant for many years to come; some drivers may not even be able to secure insurance at all, at any price.
