Negligent Driving

Negligent Driving

Did you drive in a manner that a reasonable prudent driver would have driven in all the circumstances? This is the primary consideration when facing an offence of Negligent Driving in NSW. There are three main offences within the ambit of Negligent Driving:

  • Negligent driving that does not occasion death or grievous bodily harm;
  • Negligent driving that occasions grievous bodily harm; and
  • Negligent driving that occasions death.

The seriousness of these offences is reflected by the legislative penalties. Negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm or death are deemed extremely serious, and may potentially bring with them a criminal conviction, licence disqualification, and imprisonment.

If you were involved in an accident, with or without another person/s being injured, you may be charged with a Negligent Driving offence.
