What are the potential consequences when charged with a dangerous driving offence
Dangerous driving is a criminal offence that involves driving in a manner that falls far below the standard expected of a competent and careful driver and exposes others to the risk of injury or death. Here are some potential consequences if you are charged with dangerous driving:
Criminal Record: A conviction for dangerous driving will result in a criminal record, which can have long-term consequences for your personal and professional life.
Penalties: The penalties for dangerous driving include a prison sentence, a fine, or both. The length of the prison sentence can vary depending on the seriousness of the offence, but it can be as much as two years for the least serious cases and much more for more severe cases.
Driving Disqualification: A dangerous driving conviction almost always leads to a lengthy driving ban. The length of the disqualification can vary but is typically at least one year and can be significantly longer for more serious offences.
Extended Driving Test: After the disqualification period, you must pass an extended driving test before you can regain your driving privileges. This test is more comprehensive than the standard driving test.
Increased Insurance Costs: Your car insurance premiums are likely to increase significantly if you are convicted of dangerous driving, and it may be challenging to find an insurer willing to cover you at all.
Difficulty Finding Employment: A criminal record for dangerous driving can make it difficult to secure certain types of employment, particularly jobs that require a clean driving record or positions that involve a high level of responsibility.
Civil Lawsuits: If your dangerous driving results in injury or property damage to others, you may be liable for civil lawsuits seeking compensation for the victim's losses.
Impact on Future Travel: Some countries may refuse entry or visas to individuals with certain criminal convictions, including dangerous driving.
