What is Dangerous Driving?
You can commit the offence of dangerous driving in one of two ways, either because:
  • the standard of your driving is very poor, or
  • your vehicle is in very bad condition
In relation to the standard of your driving, section 2A of the Road Traffic Act 1988 provides that you will be regarded as driving dangerously if:
  • the way you drive falls far below what would be expected of a competent and careful driver, and
  • it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that driving in that way would be dangerous.
