Other Traffic Matters
There are many traffic offences. Simple traffic offences comprise camera detected offences and failure to observe road rules. You can contest a ticket or challenge a speed detection device.
More serious traffic offences involve the dangerous operation of a vehicle and murder and manslaughter through the use of a motor vehicle. An automatic minimum 6 month period of disqualification applies when a person is convicted of operating a vehicle dangerously. The mandatory penalty for murder is life imprisonment.
A person who drives a motor vehicle without due care and attention commits an offence and can be fined or serve periods of imprisonment.
It is an offence to drive a motor vehicle on a road without a valid licence or to allow another person known to be unlicenced to drive a motor vehicle. A wide range of penalties exist depending on the circumstances of the offence.
If you are charged with any of the above or other offences, particularly the more serious offences, we strongly recommend you seek legal advice so that we can advise and represent you in an endeavour to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
