Specialist London Solicitors in Careless Driving (driving without due care and attention) cases

At MFI Law Limited we have the expertise in representing clients charged with careless driving offences. Our London Solicitors are available to represent clients at London Police Stations, Magistrates' and Crown Courts throughout the country.

Careless driving is governed by Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 which states:

A person who drives a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place without due care and attention, or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road or place is guilty of an offence.

A person is to be regarded as driving without due care and attention if (and only if) the way he drives falls below what would be expected of a competent and careful driver.

A prosecution would be considered where the manner of the careless driving in question is deliberate and when it occurs as a result of incompetence, inadvertence or inexperience.

If you would like to challenge a driving offence at court, or before it reaches court, we highly recommend you speak to a solicitor and we are here to assist you.
