If you have been charged with a careless or dangerous driving offence it could have minor or major repercussions. Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP in Leeds represent motorists who have been charged with a range of motoring offences including speeding offences, drink driving, drug driving, driving on a mobile phone, driving whilst texting, and other dangerous driving matters.
We have the expertise required to build a robust defence case 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. Also that it would be obvious to a competent driver that the manner of your driving would be dangerous. (S 2. Road Traffic Act 1988.)
A dangerous driving offence is known as an “either way” motoring offence because it can be heard in either a Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court. This will depend on the nature of offence you are accused of, and the circumstances surrounding your case.
