My local veterinary practice published an interesting poster on their social media account showing facts to do with what the laws are on having pets in the car.
Categories for Careless Driving
Until 1977, the ‘driving offences’ were concerned with three types of bad driving – reckless, dangerous and careless – though reckless and dangerous driving were both penalised in the same way through one offence.
Receiving a dangerous driving charge is the most serious motoring offence that can be committed without causing death or injury. The offence of dangerous driving is under section 2 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.
Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 states that careless and inconsiderate driving is illegal. If a person drives a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place without due care and attention, or without reasonable consideration for other persons using the road or public place, he or she is guilty of an offence.
