Negligent Driving | Negligent Driving Occasioning Death / GBH
'Negligent Driving' is the least serious of the 'dangerous driving' category of driving offences.
Drivers are often charged with 'Negligent Driving' when an accident occurs but the manner of driving is not sufficiently reckless or dangerous to press a more serious charge; such as 'drive recklessly' or 'dangerous driving'.
The law says that a driver is 'Negligent' if he or she was not 'exercising the degree of care and attention which a reasonable and prudent driver would exercise in the circumstances'.
Examples include where the driver was not paying attention to the road or did not comply with the road rules, and an accident was thereby caused.
The Penalties for Negligent Driving are more severe if someone is seriously injured ('GBH') or killed; see below.
