To secure a conviction for dangerous driving, the prosecution must prove that the manner of driving fell far below the standard of a competent and careful driver. They must also prove that the driving is likely to cause danger of personal injury or serious damage to property. It is a high standard of proof in comparison with driving without due care and attention. Whether your driving falls into this category is a matter of fact and degree for the Court to decide and we can assist with making sure the correct test is applied.
If convicted, a custodial sentence will almost always follow and you will be subject to a minimum disqualification from driving of at least 12 months and maybe ordered to take an extended re-test.
It is an area of law that is often incorrectly charged. Many factors must be taken into account such as road conditions, the expertise of the person alleging dangerousness and the conduct of other road users.
With the right legal representation, we may be able to negotiate to a lesser charge or secure an out and out acquittal.
