Careless Driving

Careless driving is a bad habit. Paying attention while driving may be one of the most important things that citizens of North Carolina can do. It is respectful and considerate to drive attentively. Careless driving is a dangerous habit that can put anyone using the road at risk, including passengers, other drivers and pedestrians.

Careless driving has the potential to lead to points being added to a license, to more money being spent on court fees, more money being spent on car insurance and more time being wasted than driving carelessly is worth. In fact, speeding over 55 miles per hour can possibly lead to a driver being assessed three points on his or her license. Those three points might increase the cost of a driver's car insurance, and time spent in court can possibly cost him or her money as well. Why drive carelessly if it can be avoided?

Careless Driving Violations

If you are caught driving carelessly and receive a traffic citation, the lawyers at Powers Landreth may be able to help you better understand your options. Their ability to advise those accused of violating North Carolina traffic laws can possibly contribute to positive outcomes for violators.

Driving carelessly is something that can likely be avoided. For example, consider an individual driving without focus as an ambulance pulls up behind his or her car, trying to pass. That individual may be impeding an ambulance from getting to its destination, possibly affecting the outcome of the emergency situation. If a law enforcement official observes this and tickets the driver, the driver can potentially receive three points on his or her license according to North Carolina traffic laws. Running through a stop sign is another violation that has the potential to add three points to a driver's license. These points may add up quickly.

Reckless driving has the potential to bring four points with it and aggressive driving might bring up to five points with a citation. All of these can likely be avoided if drivers pay more attention when behind the wheel. By focusing, drivers may be able to save their time, their money and possibly their lives.

I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
