Dangerous Driving

Dangerous driving comprises a number of offences including:
  • Dangerous driving causing death
  • Dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm

These are two traffic offences that the court takes very seriously. If you are convicted with dangerous driving, you risk a lengthy prison sentence. If you have been wrongly accused of dangerous driving, speak to us at Spencer Lawyers today.

Driving on a Suspended/Disqualified Licence

There are very serious consequences to driving on a suspended or disqualified licence including a criminal conviction, extended licence suspension, heavy fines and potential prison time.

Negligent & Reckless Driving

Considered the least serious traffic offence, drivers are commonly charged with negligent driving when an accident occurs but the manner isn’t sufficiently reckless to upgrade the offence to reckless or dangerous driving.
Negligent driving occurs when the driver is accused of not “exercising the degree of care and attention which a reasonable and prudent driver would exercise in the circumstances”. We also represent clients that have been accused of reckless driving.
