To my mind it is may be careless driving – use the statutory definition and likewise it is not dangerous under the statutory definition and so is overcharged.


In simple terms Careless because the careful competent driver would not have done what has happened.


Experts I would recommend are:

Subject: Serious injury by dangerous driving


I have a pedal confusion case in which my client was asked to park someone else’s (very powerful) car.  He presses accelerator by accident, mounts pavement for approximately 5 seconds and drives into a shop front.  Two injured in the process.


Does anyone have any suggestions for an expert?


I want to consider if this is, by its very nature, dangerous.
