Traffic offences can range from minor infringements, such as parking violations, to more serious charges like drink driving or dangerous driving causing death. It is important to understand the potential consequences of a traffic offence, including fines, demerit points, license suspension or even imprisonment.

If you are facing a traffic offence, seeking legal advice can help you understand your rights and options. A criminal lawyer can assess the evidence and provide guidance on the best way to defend the charge or negotiate a reduced penalty.

In some cases, it may be possible to apply for a diversion program, which allows a person to avoid a criminal record for minor offences by completing certain conditions, such as attending a driver education course.

If you are facing a more serious charge, such as drink driving, it is important to seek legal representation to ensure that your rights are protected and the best possible outcome is achieved.

We can assist with bail applications and representation in court, as well as negotiating with prosecutors to achieve a reduced penalty.
