Dangerous driving means that someone is operating a vehicle in a way that falls below theDangerous Driving Penalties acceptable standard. This can cover a range of examples, such as driving aggressively, running red lights or using the vehicle despite a known fault.

Being charged with dangerous driving in Ireland is serious, and if found guilty it can carry a heavy sentence. Dangerous driving penalties given to offenders will vary according to the individual set of circumstances. Causing death by dangerous driving has a minimum four year disqualification, and it can also lead to a spell in prison.
