    I'm confused as to exactly what the difference is. It must be very subtle if any at all...

    i dunno its something to do with being careless (not noticing things, like people crossing the road etc,etc,) had he been going at a slow speed the same thing would have happened as he was being careless, now im waffling :oops:

    Careless driving : not being aware of your surroundings.
    Dangerous driving : not caring about your surroundings.

    you just had to outshine me didnt ya, op this is what i meant without the waffle :oops:

    LOL. Yeah but Sassie, if you look at dangerous driving it is actually careless driving..... How cyclic lol.

    careless means to drive and not take notice where dangerous means to notice but not care of the outcome , easy example is to drive into someones car and knock a mirror off is an indication of driving without due care and attention wheres to pull out of a junction assuming you will miss another person and be proved wrong is dangerous driving

    yeah i know, but then on a bigger scale theres manslaughter and murder, one need to be premeditated the other doesnt, so i suppose its the same between careless and dangerous, one is to be driving unaware of the dangers the other is to be driving knowing the dangers, waffling again

    careless driving :
    basically , driving a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or public place, without due care and attention or showing reasonable consideration for other road users


    Dangerous driving. The test

    the way he drives which falls way below the standard what would be expected for a carefull and competant driver and its obviuos to competant and carefull driver that the way would be dangerous .

    also it would be obviuos to a competant and carefull driver that the state of the vehicle in its current state would be dangerous

    Dangerous driving:

    driving a mechanically propelled vehicle dangerously on a road or public place

    easy peasy :-D
