There are a variety of traffic offences ranging from the manner of driving (reckless driving, dangerous driving, careless driving), to driving without a licence (driving whilst disqualified etc), or drink driving and driving under the influence, and more.
Convictions for dangerous driving and reckless driving can result in the imposition of a term of imprisonment. Similarly, repeated convictions for drink/drug driving and driving without a valid license/driving whilst disqualified can eventually lead to a term of imprisonment. The other penalties that are frequently imposed for traffic offences can include large fines, and cancelling or suspending your drivers license.
Although traffic offences are thought of as being less serious than criminal offences, traffic offences can still have serious consequences, which could impact on your employment or your family if your ability to drive is affected. Therefore, it is important that you contact us for advice and/or representation when you have been charged with a traffic offence. We can represent you in court and encourage the Magistrate to impose the minimum fine or license suspension period.
We are experienced in providing advice and representation in relation to all levels of traffic offending, ranging from dangerous driving in which someone is injured, to numerous police chases, as well as lower level traffic offending relating to drink driving and driving whilst disqualified, and almost all cases where clients have pleaded guilty, we have obtained the lowest penalty available for them.
