Serious Traffic Offences in Victoria

In Victoria, Part 1 Division 9 of the Crimes Act 1958 deals with serious traffic offences. There are three main offences which fall into this category. They are, in roughly decreasing severity:

  • Culpable driving causing death,
  • Dangerous driving which causes death/serious injury and;
  • Dangerous or negligent driving while being pursued by police.

The distinction between culpable driving and dangerous driving is an important one.
