What are the penalties that the Court will impose for driving without Due Care and Attention?

The Court has wide powers in relation to the penalties that can be imposed for this offence. If a person pleads guilty or is found guilty of this offence, the Court will endorse that persons driving license with between 3 and 9 penalty points.  Alternatively the Court can impose a period of disqualification for the offence.  The Court will also give consideration to the imposition of a financial penalty, which will be dependent upon a person’s financial ability to pay.


It is important to note that a great deal can be achieved by a specialist traffic lawyer on behalf of a client pleading guilty to an offence of this nature.  Because the Court has such wide powers, it is very important to prepare and present a plea in mitigation with great care and attention to detail.  There are many situations, which on the face of it, appear to be quite serious, where vehicles have collided and people been injured and, despite this, the defendant has only received a relatively low number of penalty points on the driving license.
