Road Traffic Offences
The consequences of a driving offence can be serious, even threatening your reputation and ability to earn. We represent people accused of various driving offences including driving under the influence, driving with the prescribed concentration of alcohol in their blood and drug driving. These type of cases can be challenging, but our team has significant experience in defending and resolving matters of this kind.
Whether someone is pleading guilty to an offence or seeking to challenge the allegation, we take the time to review the evidence and ensure that all procedures have been complied with. Allegations of drink driving are serious, particularly now that Police have the power to impound a person’s vehicle. We also represent people accused of driving without due care and driving in a way that is culpably negligent, reckless, at speed or dangerous to the public.
Our lawyers assist people facing a loss of licence due to an accumulation of demerit points and help those who would like to reduce or avoid demerit accumulation.
Whether you’re an individual or a corporation, liability for breaches of Heavy Vehicle Driver Fatigue laws can arise for everyone in the chain of responsibility who do not take reasonable steps to prevent driver fatigue. Our team can help you navigate this new and technical area of law.
Extraordinary Licences (Western Australia only)
If you have been disqualified from holding a drivers licence, you may be able to apply for an Extraordinary Licence for purposes such as work. We can assist in preparing these applications and representing you in the Magistrates Court.
