Dangerous Driving


  1. Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle

Court:  Magistrates Court

Solicitor: Andrew Hanlon

Date: March 2018

Maximum Penalty: 3 years imprisonment


Our client was charged with an offence of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle in circumstances where, following a heated argument, it was alleged he deliberately drove a vehicle at two people and hit them causing injuries.

After a careful analysis of the evidence relied upon by the prosecution, we were able to negotiate to have the charge reduced to one count of assault occasioning bodily harm in circumstances where our client was criminally negligent in his operation of the vehicle.

On a plea of guilty to the reduced charge our client was placed on a good behaviour bond and had no conviction recorded for the offence.


This is a summary of an actual case. Details have been omitted to protect the privacy of our client. We select cases which are informative and no guarantee is provided that similar results are achievable in all cases. Every case is different and you should obtain legal advice specific to your matter and circumstances.
