Areas where we can assist

  • Careless & Dangerous driving
    • Careless and dangerous are categorised as different acts. Careless driving is an offence of where an individual may lose concentration at the wheel which may cause damage or injury. Whereas dangerous driving is where an individual loses control of the vehicle due to going over the speed limit or trying to overtake another vehicle, which would result in an accident and/or injury.
  • Death by Careless / Dangerous driving
    • Death of another person due to an individual’s careless or dangerous driving.
  • Driving without MOT / Insurance / Licence
    • It is a legal requirement that a vehicle which is used on the road or in a public place has to have insurance and MOT and the person driving it must have a licence. An individual which is found to be driving a vehicle without insurance, a licence or their car being MOT will be charged.
  • Drink / Drug Driving
    • Driving or attempting to drive a vehicle when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The limits of how much an individual may consume and then legally drive differs with alcohol and drugs.

      The legal limit of units an individual may drink before legally driving is four units.

      If an individual’s urine or blood sample proves that they have consumed over their prescribed amount of medication, then this individual could be charged.

  • Failing to stop / report an accident
    • Failing an accident is anything between a small bump on a car park to leaving the scene at a major car crash. If an individual refuse to stop and give their details or report the incident to the police soon after, they will be charged with failing to stop.

    • Speeding is going at an excessive speed of the required conditions.
