Dangerous Driving Acquittal
This defendant, represented by Harry Bowyer, was charged with Dangerous Driving (Maximum Sentence 2 years imprisonment, Mandatory Disqualification, Extended Driving Test to regain licence) having been stopped in a car which had its side windows tinted to such an extent as to allow only 3-4% of light to penetrate. On the morning of the trial, having been shown defence documentation, the prosecution and the Judge accepted that the defendant did not know that he was driving an illegally tinted car and accepted a plea to careless driving. No evidence was offered on the Dangerous Driving. The defendant’s licence was endorsed with 3 penalty points and he had to pay towards prosecution costs.
