Hiring a traffic offence lawyer in Penrith is the best way to minimise your risk of severe consequences. As legal professionals, we can interpret the law and make sure that those prosecuting you are acting within it. In our experience, our clients find it helpful to know more about the ways we can assist them. As such, we’ll detail some of the common defences for traffic offences:
If this is your first offence or you haven’t been convicted of one for many years, you may be able to avoid license suspension. Our team will obtain good character references that endear you to the judge.
Driving while suspended can come with a hefty fine. However, if you weren’t aware that you were suspended, you may not face prosecution. This often happens when someone has changed addresses at the point that the RMS issues a letter to them.
Being accused of dangerous driving is a particularly worrying offence, as it comes with a minimum penalty of three years’ license suspension. As a strict liability offence, intent isn’t a reasonable defence. However, our team can help you focus on other areas of your case and minimise your risk of a jail term.
