Traffic Offences

Traffic offences are often considered as minor matters but can develop into major issues with significant consequences for an individual or their business.

Traffic offences include: speeding, drink driving, negligent driving, driving while disqualified or suspended and driving unregistered vehicle. Loss of licence can become a burden on your work, social life and your assets.

It is also good to be always aware of the potential accident while driving. You should be aware of your rights and potential risks from authorities if involved in an accident to avoid the terrible consequences.

Traffic offenders face tougher penalties from lawmakers through increased fines and demerit points, prolonged driving licence suspensions and criminal prosecutions. The courts have less patience for individuals who are careless on the road. The courts have access to the penalties for traffic offences and hence some penalties are mandatory for certain driving offences.

Our Lawyers, based in south Sydney, can assist you to obtain an acceptable outcome through the following steps: assess how your offence can be argued, advise on possible strategies and evidence required, advise on realistic expectation of likely outcome in court as well as court representation.

The assistance of a good lawyer is priceless when there is a need for you to attend to court hearings.

The program enables the individuals who have been charged with drink driving to be able to drive after agreeing to the following two orders: first, the disqualification compliance period; and second, to obtain an alcohol interlock device, which is a breath testing device preventing the car to start if the driver is over the legal limit.
