Driving Without Due Care And Attention
Careless driving, or driving without due care and attention, can carry up to 9 penalty points and may even result in disqualification as well as a sizeable fine. It may be possible to avoid or reduce these potential fines, with the help of a professional motoring solicitor that specialises in such cases. Various actions and types of driving may lead to this charge and the police not only have to prove that your driving fell below the required standard but that you know that this is the case.
Loss Of Concentration
Even careful and highly experienced drivers may endure temporary lapses of concentration. Fortunately, in most instances, this doesn’t lead to accidents and no charges are brought. However, in some cases, accidents can happen, police may witness the incident, and you may be charged with the offence of driving without due care and attention.
Losing Your Driving Licence
This is typically considered to be the lesser charge when compared to dangerous driving but it can still prove costly financially and in terms of penalty points. Discretionary disqualification is also a potential threat with the charge and if you rely on the use of your car for work or any other purposes then losing your driving licence could prove highly detrimental to your everyday life. With a professionally prepared driving defence you could experience a reduced sentence and have your potential punishment lessened.
Defending Your Case
There are certain defences that may help reduce or eliminate punishment. If it can be proven that the incident did not happen, that it was not you and merely a case of mistaken identity, or if it can be proven that the incident was not tantamount to driving without due care then there is the chance of escaping potentially damaging penalties.
Careless driving, which is often referred to as driving without due care and attention, could lead to you driving out of a junction into oncoming traffic. It may involve driving too close to a vehicle in front or oncoming traffic or it could involve you undertaking a vehicle. Reading a map while driving, talking and even eating or drinking while driving are possible causes of these kinds of incident and may lead to you being charged with careless driving.
