In 2018 I represented Mr G who was charged with dangerous driving. He had been the driver of a fuel tanker that had overturned on a main road in the south-east. The prosecution alleged that my client had exceeded his drivers’ hours the previous day and was therefore overworked and too tired to be driving safely on the day of the accident. The Prosecution Service had misunderstood the tachograph records, and when I correctly analysed these I was able to show that he had worked correctly the previous day. This element of the charge was dropped and it helped my client avoid prison sentence.
