Careless driving actually constitutes 2 offences:
- Driving without due care and attention; and
- Driving without reasonable consideration for other persons.
For you to be convicted of one of these offences, the court would have to find that you did not exercise the degree of care and skill that would be reasonably expected of a driver in the same circumstances. The test is the same for all road users regardless of age or experience.
If you cannot give a good explanation for why your driving fell below the standard required, you will be convicted.
