The most serious contravention of the Road Traffic Act is Section 1 causing death by dangerous driving.
Death by dangerous driving is the most serious charge a driver can face. These cases are taken to the High Court and if convicted the office carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years and a minimum period of disqualification of 24 months. The driver must also re-sit and pass the extended driving test should the offender want to apply for a licence when their ban is lifted.
Any fatality following a road traffic accident will be devastating for all of those involved. This will include those charged with the offence of causing death by dangerous driving. At Neil Kilcoyne Solicitors, we understand the stress those accused of the offence and their families face, and we pride ourselves in providing expert legal advice and preparing a strong defence.
