Careless Driving, Glasgow, 6 February 2017, case not called
This was an allegation of careless driving (full title – driving without due care and attention or reasonable consideration for other road users) and it called at Glasgow Justice of the Peace Court.
On review of the case papers, we quickly identified a crucial flaw in the Crown case and presented our findings to the Procurator Fiscal when the case was due to call on 6 February. As a result of our representations, the Crown agreed not to proceed with the case and it was “not called”. In the circumstances of this case, it meant that the prosecution was over for good.
