How our road traffic solicitors can help
Our road traffic defence lawyers advise and represent individuals on a comprehensive range of driving offences, including drink driving, dangerous driving and speeding. So, whether you have received a NIP (Notice of Intended Prosecution), been invited in for an interview under caution by the police, summoned for an offence, or been charged and bailed to attend Court, get in touch with our legal team and we’ll be able to give you expert legal advice.
Your road traffic solicitor will provide you with advice that will always be in your best interests and designed to ensure the best possible outcome for you. Making an initial enquiry won’t cost you anything, but allows us to advise you as to your options and if you want to defend any allegations, the likelihood of you being able to do so successfully.
Covid-19 and road traffic offences
Following the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important to consider the legacy of COVID-19 regarding road traffic offences. Accumulating 12 penalty points or more will see the Court consider disqualification for a minimum of 6 months unless an exceptional hardship argument is successfully advanced to the Court. The country has undergone huge changes in its working practices with less reliance on office-based and face to face working. Factors that once may have been considered ‘exceptional’ may no longer hold the same gravity in the eyes of the Court because the loss of a driving licence will not necessarily result in the individual losing their job.
It has never been more important to seek advice and guidance as to how best to present your argument to the Court and our dedicated team are on hand to assist you.
