    DescriptionThis volume examines general driving offences, concentrating on those which punish risk-taking whilst driving, with the primary goal of increasing road safety. The focus is particularly on careless driving, dangerous driving, drink-driving and speeding, with a comparative approach incorporated into the discussion. Drawing on legal and psychological research, the book explains the legal definition of offences, discussing the policy behind the offences and examines how the law is applied in practice. It concludes with consideration of how the law in this area might be reformed - informed by the preceding discussion. This title will be a valuable resource tool for students, academics and practitioners working in the area of road safety.
