Dangerous Driving

Dangerous Driving

In order to establish a charge of dangerous driving, the prosecution must prove that the driving standard fell far below the standard expected of a competent driver. 

This offence is referred to as an ‘either way’ motoring offence, which means it can be heard in the Magistrates or Crown Court.  If the case is heard in the Magistrates Court the sentencing powers are more limited with a maximum of 6 months imprisonment.  However, if the case is heard in the Crown Court they can sentence you to a maximum of 2 years imprisonment.
