Careless Driving Offences Solicitors

Careless driving was previously known as driving without due care and attention (CD10), and can result in a severe sentence.

It is quite rightly taken very seriously by the courts, but legal defences are available which will reduce your chances of being found guilty.

The highly experienced legal specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler will provide you with professional legal advice, for your CD10 driving offence, to help you stay in control of your driving licence. Our lawyers pride themselves on their dedicated and meticulous approach, as well as being approachable and pleasant to deal with.

Lanyon Bowdler was one of the pioneers of the fixed fee pricing option, and we will work with you to find a payment structure to suit you.

What is Careless Driving?

The description of careless driving is: a person driving a vehicle on a road or other public place without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other people in the vicinity (CD20).

Typical examples of this are:

  • Driving too fast
  • Causing an accident
  • Driving too close to other vehicles
  • Failing to stop at traffic lights

It’s worth remembering, however, that the phrase 'driving without due care and attention' is objective and can change depending on the circumstances of the case. So it is essential to enlist the help of motoring offence solicitors who specialise in these types of cases for representation and legal advice.

Your lawyer can give you a good chance of reducing the severity of any penalties you are given, whether penalty points or a fine.
