Negligent or dangerous driving

Written by Canrone Cochin

Negligent or dangerous driving causes many crashes on NSW roads each year. Negligent or dangerous means driving without the due care and attention reasonably expected of a driver. It puts you, other drivers, and the public at risk and can result in serious injury or death. You can prevent these situations when you learn driving from driving schools, Bondi.
