In the first six months of 2017, 64 people were killed on Scotland’s roads.
There have been many occasions where the police and Procurator Fiscal Service have concluded that a driver is responsible for another’s death by either driving in a manner which is deemed to be dangerous or careless. Should you find yourself in this position, you have the right to defend yourself in the face of prosecution.
