Careless Driving – New Penalty Laws


As of August 16th 2013 the Government is announcing new legislation whereby you can receive a fixed on the spot fine for “careless driving”.

There are a number of points which this legislation encompasses and police will be focussing on penalising contraventions of the following with fixed penalty notices of up to £100.

• Driving too close to the vehicle in front

• Failing to give way at a junction

• Forcing your way into a queue of traffic following overtaking

• Incorrect lane use on a roundabout or a junction
