“I found Hadi Law on the internet, give them a call and felt comfortable with them from the initial phone call and decided to go with them, it wasn't cheap, but if you want quality, you have to pay for it
I was glad I did I was looking at a 6-month ban and fine. Katie Taylor was on top of her game, and the barrister was ace. After putting in mitigation, I walked out of the court with a 28-day ban and a £500 fine which was much better than I expected.

What is careless driving?
The Road Traffic Act 1988 defines careless driving as driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place without due care and attention or without reasonable consideration for other persons.
Careless driving is a broad offence and includes:
Failing to give way
Using the wrong lane at a roundabout
Ignoring a lane closed sign and forcing your way into a queue of vehicles
Lane hogging, especially in the middle lane
Undertaking on a motorway
Hand brake turns
Operating a satnav or reading a map while driving
Eating or drinking at the wheel
Lane hopping or weaving
The above list is not exhaustive. Our Solicitors have defended most types of careless driving cases – you can be confident that our team has an in-depth understanding of the law and the court system. We are also able to instruct some of the country’s top barristers if you receive a Court summons.
What are the penalties for careless driving?
If you have committed a minor careless driving offence, you may receive a Fixed Penalty Notice which will normally consist of three penalty points on your licence and a £100 fine. The risk is that these points could result in you having 12 or more points on your licence (totting up) and being disqualified from driving. If this happens, call us immediately so we can review your case and advise you on whether it is possible to avoid disqualification.
Careless driving can result in three to nine penalty points if the Court convicts you and a fine of up to £2,500. You can also be immediately disqualified from driving.
