Motoring Convictions And How Best To Avoid Them

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 10 days ago
    We are all aware that driving comes with its consequences. There are things that can and do go wrong on a daily, weekly and monthly basis either within your local community and nationally. There are common convictions that our law enforcement deal with each minute of the day, and while they are something we, in most cases, don’t intend to commit, we can all be faced with issues throughout our driving lives. I wanted to share with you some of the common motoring convictions and the actions you can take to handle them or avoid making them altogether. I hope the tips provided help you to avoid issues in the future. 


    Driving under the influence

    We all know we shouldn’t do it, but in some cases having “the one drink” can still cause you to be over the limit. Driving under the influence or getting a DUI isn’t going to be one of your best moves. Of course, if you find yourself in this situation then finding out if there are any DUI attorneys nearby would be the first port of action to take. However, the best advice in this situation is to not put yourself behind the wheel in the first place. If you intend to drink, or do anything else for that matter that is classed as a illegal, leave the vehicle at home. 

    Speeding

    Speeding is something that many of us can commit an offence in without even realising we are doing it. A little over the limit, a change in the road from one speed to another, can all cause us to commit speeding offences. Many cars nowadays have speed limiters, or even a warning for when speed limits change to help you stay within the law. 

    Insurance offences

    We all know that we need insurance to drive a vehicle, however, insurance offences are still very common as a motoring conviction can cause you to get fines and having your license revoked. This is when you drive a car without insurance, or you are not named on a policy in which a car is insured. 

    Accident offences

    Ever been involved or witness an accident and just drive away from the scene? This is cause for a motoring conviction and can end up costing you heavily depending on the type of accident and how serious it is. Failing to stop is an offence of a criminal nature, as well as being a motoring conviction. So it is important to ensure that you drive with care, and if accidents happen, ensure you stop. 

    Careless driving

    Finally, careless driving is also an issue that anyone can face. This might be using a mobile phone while driving, not paying attention to the road such as stopping for traffic signals, eating in the car, or letting your eyes stray away from what they are doing. Some of these careless actions can go on to cause real accidents. So there is no surprise that this sort of offence is targeted to ensure people are more aware of their behaviour behind the wheel. Switch your phone off or connect it to bluetooth and try and avoid other actions that take concentration away from the actual driving.
