Careless Driving

Careless driving can cover a wide range of incidents, from those involving a collision to simple driving mistakes, such as crossing the white line in the middle of the road.

Sometimes, the offence will be obvious and the best approach will be to try and avoid a ban or reduce the fine and number of penalty points.

Where there is a possible defence, it will often involve difficult arguments and possibly expert evidence, so making an early start with it can be crucial.

Contact us as soon as possible to see how we can assist.
