I drive a e class mercedes, the back of the car kicked out. the person that reported me said i was diffin round the round about,

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
I'm really sorry but I don't understand.

Would you mind using formal English so that we can understand each other.

I don't know what kicked out means here and certainly not what 'diffin' means.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i lost control of my car at a round about as it was wet. there wasn't many people about, and i never done any harm

Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 years ago.
Its very unlikely you'll be charged with dangerous driving.

If they take any action at all then it will be for careless driving and you would get 3 points and a fine.

Actually if you lost control because of weather conditions alone then you do have a defence anyway to careless driving although obviously that would not be the case if it was a combination of weather conditions and, for instance, excessive speed.

If you have been called in for interview then you should really attend. If you don't they would just summons you.

If its just a simple error then you offer that account.

If the extent of this is a bit of skidding with no damage or injury though then I would be surprised if they prosecute.

Hope this helps.
