If you are caught far in excess of the speed limit, taking wrong turns or a near-crash, there is a high risk of an immediate disqualification from driving based on the recorded incident. Through the utilisation of a dangerous driving solicitor, you can ensure the best chance of a successful appeal.
Frustratingly, different Courts around the country have different local practices. Even still, dangerous driving is the most serious non-fatal road traffic charge that a driver can face, regardless of the Court’s penalty tendencies. In order to convict someone of dangerous driving, the prosecution must show that the standard of driving was far below the minimum standard of driving expected; and that it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that such driving was dangerous.
This might include excessive speeding, racing, aggressive driving, ignoring road signs or overtaking where it wasn’t safe to do so. Contact our dangerous driving solicitors today with further information on your incident and stand the best possible chance of a successful appeal.
Due to the serious nature of a charge for dangerous driving, a case can be heard in either the Magistrates Court or Crown Court. If found guilty, the punishment for a dangerous driving conviction is an obligatory driving ban for a minimum of one year and in the most serious cases, a prison sentence of up to 2 years may be imposed. A driver convicted of dangerous driving will also have to sit an extended re-test before they are allowed to drive again, this is where dangerous driving solicitors can be hugely beneficial to your case.
It can sometimes be difficult for the prosecution to prove that the standard of driving was so poor that it constitutes dangerous driving rather than careless driving. Our dangerous driving solicitors aim to get further detailing of how the prosecution began, as well as other information that can be a playing factor in the prosecution, such as location, people involved etc. The highest level of careless driving is described as careless bordering on the dangerous; therefore it can often be argued that a charge of careless driving is more appropriate.
Though there are a number of routes our dangerous driving solicitors will take, aiding with prosecution is the main focus, whether that may be exploiting misinformation and untruthfulness or disputing the case overall.
