Predatory driving is a serious motoring offence dealt with under the Crimes Act. Therefore, anyone convicted faces a heavy fine, imprisonment, or both. Predatory driving is when a motorist drives close to another vehicle that causes or threatens an impact and intends by that course of conduct to cause a person in the other vehicle actual bodily harm. It includes tailgating and road rage.
A conviction can also result in lengthy licence disqualifications, not to mention the cost to your personal, professional and family life. If charged with predatory driving, you must seek legal advice from our predatory driving lawyers early so someone can advocate for you and maximise the chances of a positive outcome.

Predatory driving is dangerous, aggressive driving when a driver pursues another vehicle intending to cause harm. It involves tailgating, excessive speeding, road rage, aggressive weaving between lanes and deliberately intimidating or endangering other drivers or pedestrians. Predatory driving is a significant safety concern considered a criminal offence, leading to legal consequences for those engaged in such behaviour. It poses a substantial risk to public safety and is prosecuted to deter dangerous road conduct.
The prosecution must prove the following elements beyond a reasonable doubt to establish predatory driving:
The maximum penalty for a first or subsequent offence is five years imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $11,000. There is an automatic disqualification period of 3 years for a first offence, with a minimum disqualification period of 12 months. The automatic licence disqualification period is five years for a second or subsequent offence, with a minimum of two years. These consequences can be avoided if the Court applies section 10 of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999.
Predatory driving implies a deliberate intent to target or harass other road users through aggressive actions like tailgating, road rage or intimidation. Menacing driving, however, may involve reckless or threatening behaviour without the clear intent to harass but still poses a danger. Both offences are taken seriously as they jeopardise road safety. Menacing driving offences do not have to occur on a public road.
