Death By Careless Or Dangerous Driving

If your driving causes the death of another, then the offence of causing death by dangerous driving has been committed.

Available 24/7 to Provide the Support You Require

What you should know

 

Penalties:
The maximum sentence for death by dangerous, careless driving was increased in 2003 from 10 to 14 years. A driving ban of two years is also mandatory, with a mandatory retake of the driving test to regain the licence.

Defences;
It may be possible to argue on behalf of the defendant that the manner of driving was ‘careless’ rather than dangerous. This does not amount to a defence but will act as a mitigating factor, provided that the defendant was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Causing death by careless driving comes with a lower penalty.
