Driving Without Due Care & Attention

The offence of driving without due care and attention, or careless driving as it is sometimes known, is committed when the standard of a person’s driving falls below that expected of a competent and careful driver in all the circumstances.

Acts considered to be careless could also lead to charges of driving without reasonable consideration when it is shown that other persons using a road or public place are inconvenienced by the manner of the defendant’s driving.

There is a distinction to be drawn between careless and dangerous driving and it is essentially a matter of fact and degree. Whether a Defendant is guilty of careless driving is an objective test for the Courts to decide.
