Traffic law is an ever increasing, voluminous and complex area to practice in.
Traffic law covers matters relating to vehicular-based and criminal driving offences. As traffic lawyers in Sydney, we deal with traffic offences including drink driving, reckless driving and driving without a licence. Through to moving traffic offences like using a mobile telephone, and more serious matters such as motor vehicle collisions, particularly where people are injured or killed.
While a driver’s licence, and the privilege of driving, can be taken away because of infringements resulting in the loss of demerit points or court order, there are some traffic offences where a licence can be lost instantly. There may be some opportunity to put in a licence appeal, specifically if the loss of licence is due to the actions of a police officer suspending you on the side of the road or the Roads and Maritime Services taking administrative action.
Criminal Offence & Traffic Law
While not all traffic law offences in Sydney carry hefty consequences, there are some matters which are considered a criminal offence. Amongst these are drink driving and traffic offences resulting in serious injury. Criminal offences such as negligent driving causing grievous bodily harm or death, or a dangerous driving offence and the injury or death that may result, are all dealt with in this section. These latter offences often carry terms of imprisonment. For instance, if you kill someone while driving a motor vehicle, imprisonment is a likely consequence.
