CTC's view: 

The maximum sentence that can be imposed for careless driving is a £5,000 fine and/or 6 months in custody. Judges can also impose a driving ban but it is not obligatory. Between 3 and 9 penalty points can be given if a ban is not imposed.

The fine given in this case was considerably higher than the average fine for careless driving, which is £152.
