I cannot thank Brian enough for the amount of commitment he put in to my case! He was able to explain the court process in simple terms, and I felt at ease knowing that someone so highly professional... was dealing with my case. His advice resulted in the case being dropped and it ended in my favour. After my experience I would definitely recommend Brian, as he handled everything so efficiently.

I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Brian regarding a motoring offence for a close friend of mine. Brian has been amazing throughout the whole process with regular and clear... communication. Brian is professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field of expertise. Furthermore, and more importantly, Brian managed to get my friend the best possible outcome that we just didn’t think was possible. Hopefully, I never have to use Brian personally, however if I do commit a motoring offence, he will definitely be the man I call. I have already referred a family member of mine to Brian as I know he will be taken care of.Brian, thank you once again for all your hard work which in turn gave us the best possible more

Careless driving is driving below the standard of a competent and careful driver.  It is also described as driving ‘without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road or place’.  The court will have to be satisfied that you are ‘at fault’.

The Highway Code is often a good guide.

Examples of cases in which we have been involved include:

  • Driving a defective vehicle when the defect was known to the driver
  • Overtaking on the inside
  • Driving inappropriately close to another vehicle
  • Driving through a red light causing an accident
  • Emerging from a side road into the path of another vehicle
  • Turning right across the path of another vehicle causing an accident
  • Driving over the centre white line and colliding with an oncoming vehicle

Examples of cases in which we have been involved relating to driving with reasonable consideration include:

  • Flashing of lights to force another driver to give way
  • Misuse of a lane to avoid queueing
  • Unnecessarily remaining in an overtaking lane
  • Unnecessarily slow driving or braking without good cause
  • Driving with undipped headlights thus dazzling oncoming drivers
  • Driving through a puddle causing a pedestrian to be splashed

Typically, careless driving is a momentary negligent error of judgment or a single negligent manoeuvre.


The courts have guidelines as follows:

A momentary lapse of concentration or misjudgement at low speed

Band A Fine3-4 points
Loss of control due to speed, mishandling or insufficient attention to road conditions, or carelessly turning right across oncoming trafficBand B Fine5-8 points
Overtaking manoeuvre at speed resulting in a collision of vehicles, or driving bordering on the dangerousBand C FineConsider disqualification OR 7-9 points
