Where dangerous driving results in the death of another person then the driver of the vehicle will face prosecution for the offence of causing death by dangerous driving (under section 1 of the Road Traffic Act 1988).
Understandably the most serious driving offence faced by any driver in the criminal courts in Scotland this offence carries a maximum prison sentence of fourteen years and a minimum period of two years disqualification. The convicted person must thereafter pass the extended test of competency to drive before he or she can regain their license.
This is an offence of the utmost gravity and, in turn, merits the provision of legal advice and guidance of the utmost quality. At Richard Freeman Road Traffic Lawyers we are able to draw on an abundance of experience, acquired in solemn cases both in the High Court of Justiciary and Sheriff and Jury Courts in offering the best possible service to drivers facing the very serious charge of causing Death by Dangerous Driving.
