What to do if you have been accused of dangerous driving
At Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP, we have the experience and technical expertise required to build a robust defence and protect the rights of those being accused of dangerous driving. Our efficient no nonsense approach is what sets us apart from the rest.
For a charge of dangerous driving to succeed, the prosecution must prove to the satisfaction of the court that your driving fell far below the standard expected of a competent driver and it would be obvious to a competent driver that the manner of your driving would be dangerous. (S 2. Road Traffic Act 1988.)
The dangerous driving offence is known as an “either way” motoring offence because it can be heard in either the Magistrates’ Court or the Crown Court and this will depend on the offence you are accused of and the circumstances surrounding your case.
