If you’ve been caught speeding one too many times, then you may be left asking yourself: ‘can I stop a totting up driving ban?’. These are issued when you accrue 12 or more penalty points on your licence in a three-year period – usually after three to four minor driving offences.
Penalties for careless driving can range from 3 penalty points to a driving disqualification. In more serious cases, where personal injury is caused, a person can go to prison for driving carelessly. Careless driving is defined as driving which falls below the standard of a competent driver.
