This is a very broad charge used in a number of different situations. It is defined as operating a mechanically propelled vehicle without due care and attention, or without reasonable consideration for other motorists or people on the road. Usually this is a charge that will be used if a vehicle has been involved in a collision. This charge is widely open to interpretation, which makes it one of the most common charges laid in traffic incidents. The consequences of being convicted of careless driving can be very severe, so it is in your best interest to retain representation if you have been charged.
