There are several dangerous driving offences, each carrying differing penalties to reflect the seriousness of the offence. Serious outcomes, including imprisonment and licence loss, can be applied, which would cause much disruption to your life. 

If you are accused, under investigation or have been charged with a dangerous driving offence, you need a Senior Dangerous Driving Lawyer to provide immediate advice and representation.

Dangerous driving is one of the more serious driving offences a driver can commit. You can be sent to prison and disqualified from driving. You may also face heavy financial penalties if convicted.

Dangerous driving means driving without the due care and attention reasonably expected of a driver. It can put you, other drivers, and the public at risk, potentially resulting in serious injury or death. You can rely on the team at Repute Law to get immediate legal assistance.

Anyone accused of dangerous driving needs to obtain immediate legal advice. Before giving any statements or making any comment to the police, we strongly recommend contacting the Repute Law team. We can assign a Senior Dangerous Driving Defence Lawyer to your case immediately.

The key difference between negligent and dangerous driving is that a person can be negligent without being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Negligent driving refers to a failure to exercise caution or care while driving.

The most common examples of negligent driving are when inattention causes an accident, or a driver has failed to comply with the road rules.

Reckless driving in NSW refers to situations where you drive in a manner that creates an ‘obvious and serious risk of causing physical injury to any other road user or substantial damage to property.

At the outset, it must be proved that you were the driver. If that can be established, it can be argued that your driving posed no potential danger, that you drove as an automaton, drove under duress or for necessity.

A medical emergency may be a potential defence against a dangerous driving charge on the basis of necessity. Please contact Repute Law today to start building your defence.

Any dangerous driving offence is serious, with a maximum of up to 10 years in prison. Aggravated serious driving has a 14-year maximum; you can also expect to be disqualified from driving for a significant time. You may contact Repute Law’s hotline during our business hours to discuss the seriousness of your specific charge.

Several offences fall under the category of dangerous driving with each carrying different penalties to reflect the seriousness of that offence. Committing any of these offences can result in severe penalties, ranging from licence disqualification to imprisonment. The guideline judgement in R v Whyte (2002) 55 NSWLR provides guidance on sentencing those charged with dangerous driving.

The police must prove you were the driver of a motor vehicle, involved in an impact causing death or grievous bodily harm to another person and you were under the influence of alcohol or a drug, or you were driving at dangerous speed or in a dangerous manner.

You should never plead guilty without first obtaining legal advice. There may be some issue with the police case, which means they could never have proved it. It may also be that whilst you accept guilt, you don’t accept how the police outline the facts of the case (what actually happened).

How the police outline the case can impact heavily on your sentence, so this needs to be reviewed and negotiated carefully. In an appropriate case, your Senior Defence Lawyer will advise you of the benefit of pleading guilty, including up to a 25% discount on the penalty, which is significant. Before pleading guilty, you should contact the Repute Law team to discuss your case’s factors.
