After pleading guilty to a charge of dangerous driving, mainly due to not understanding fully the consequences, I received a letter from the Procurator Fiscal rejecting my plea. I found out I would be liable for a minimum of 12 month ban, and should seek legal advice. After speaking with 2 other firms, both of which were extremely unhelpful (verging on rude), I called Road Traffic Law and spoke with Kirstin Ferguson, who was very helpful and positive about my case. I met her a day later to discuss my case, and she immediately pointed out a few problems with the statement of evidence provided by the Procurator Fiscal. 2 days later she called to advise that after speaking to the PF, my case had been dismissed due to a technicality! Being almost 6 months pregnant and extremely stressed over this situation, I cant believe its actually over and can only stress how helpful Kirstin was in resolving this matter so quickly. I would not hesitate in recommending Road Traffic Law, and Kirstin in particular, to everyone.

Mr Walker did what two other legal adviser's failed to do! After lengthy consultation and advice with two other solicitors they failed to sort this case for me. Mr Walker took a "Late plea to the competency of the charge" *(Late because other advisers failed to take the point) He successfully argued that the point should be debated although this was opposed by the PF but allowed by the court after representations made by Mr Walker. He later attended court and argued that the case should be thrown out....which it was. Delighted with result and happy to recommend Mr Walker's firm to anyone who needs a good road traffic lawyer.

Keep your Car Insurance Premiums Down

Take the necessary steps to ensure you are not paying more than you need to

It’s that time of year again.

Spring is around the corner; meaning many people’s car insurance policies will shortly be up for renewal. Don’t settle with what you have; there are usually ways to keep more of your hard earned cash in your pocket and keep your car insurance premiums down!

Keep your car insurance premiums down

Keep your car insurance premiums down

I know it is time consuming; however companies are aware that we do not wish to spend our evenings in front of a computer researching where to get the best deals! Therefore your Insurance Renewal can often be laden with unnecessary costs and fees – Hastings Direct charge a 50 pound renewal fee: they are literally charging people extra money for staying loyal! The best way to keep your car insurance premiums down is to shop around:

Insurance companies know that many of us will just click the renewal button: Inertia stops many of us from changing bank accounts, or mobile phone contracts, and it is the same with insurance. Although it is the ‘easy thing to do’, it can cost you hundreds of pounds! Use comparison sites such as MoneySupermarket, and GoCompare. Aviva and Direct Line are two major players who you will not find on any price comparison sites so are worth a search. If you own more than one car, then a ‘multi-car discount’ can keep your car insurance premiums down and save you hundreds of pound’s.

As in all walks of life: the cheapest deal is seldom the best deal. Although you want to keep your car insurance premiums down you must think about the cover you actually need. We are repeatedly contacted by motorists facing a variety of Insurance related charges. Do you drive to work? Not all policies cover commuting and are only in place for ‘Social, Domestic and Pleasure’ use. If the use of your car is central to your employment then you will need a business insurance policy. It does not matter if you drive the length and breadth of the country, or are a part time delivery driver at the local takeaway: if you are using your car for business purposes and are stopped by the police without the correct insurance you will be facing a high end points endorsement.

Once you have found the correct insurance deal for your needs it is up to you to keep your car insurance premiums down! I wrote a blog yesterday on the True Cost of Speeding in Scotland: if convicted of a motoring offence, expect the cost of your car insurance premiums to soar. If you have been stopped by the police for driving without the correct insurance then ti is important you contact a lawyer as there could be a technical defense open to you. If you have been charged with any Road Traffic Law offence, contact Graham Walker at or call 0800 612 9597 for a FREE CASE CONSULTATION with a member of the Road Traffic Law team.
