When i was charged with ‘Drunk in charge of a vehicle’ I didn’t know what to do or who to contact. Fortunately I’ve known one lawyer for a number of years so contacted him immediately. I explained my situation to which he replied immediately ‘ If there’s anyone that can help you its a personal friend Graham Walker’. Obviously at first i was dubious of such a high recommendation so quickly but it soon became apparent it was the right choice. Living on a small island on the west coast of Scotland isn’t practical at the best of times never mind trying to win a court case with your lawyer, the court and residence all in different places. Having said this Graham and his team weren’t phased by the logistics in the slightest and pressed on with the case straight away to a fantastic standard. One of Grahams juniors Simone travelled to the scene of the incident to photograph the scene,interview witnesses and appreciate the logistics of the offence. Simone couldn’t be faulted in any aspect of the investigation. She went through everything with a fine toothed comb and came across genuinely on my side of the argument and determined to get the best outcome possible.Knowledgeable and professional throughout, Simone is a real credit to Graham and Road traffic law as a company. Graham Walker drove 3 hours to get to court for the case not to go on trial and he didn’t bother in the slightest. Again, the main concern was my case and getting the best possible outcome. The second time he made the 3 hour drive the trial went ahead. It was at this time i witnessed him stand in front of the court room and ‘grab the bull by the horns’ so to speak. With his eloquent manner and calm demeanour it wasn’t long before the fiscal and witnesses were on there back feet wondering what to ask next. This was the theme from the outset and subsequently he won the trial with an impressive portfolio of questions and techniques. Graham,Simone and I’m sure the rest of there colleagues at Road Traffic Law are exceptionally well educated in the given department and couldn’t provide a better service. If anyone has been charged with a road traffic offence theres only one company that will give you the service and confidence to win your case and thats road traffic law. Impeccable service form start to finish.

Questions

Drink Driving

Any person who is driving, attempting to drive, or in charge of a motor vehicle on the road, or in a public place (eg any land that the public have access to), may be required by the police to provide a breath test, to ascertain whether they are over the prescribed limit of alcohol – 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath (or 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood).

Speeding

Many people define speeding  by 5 – 10 mph as merely ‘driving over the limit’ and even view speeding by 10 - 20 mph as ‘acceptable speeding’. Many people consider ‘real speeding’ to be only speeding by more than 20 mph. Most of us speed from time to time however with the profusion of speed cameras on the roads today a large portion of our society is being criminalised. With disqualification risk being so high motorists now demand to know their rights and wish to exercise them.

Newly Qualified Drivers

Your driving licence is automatically revoked if you build up six or more penalty points within two years of passing your first driving test.  This includes any penalty points you had before passing the test, which are still valid. You’ll have to reapply for your driving licence as a learner driver and re-sit your driving test. You are in most jeopardy not just because you lack experience as a driver but because the penalties hit you faster.

More…

Insurance

The courts can order the immediate disqualification of the offender. The serious nature of the offence is reflected in the level of the maximum fine, £5,000, and the automatic endorsement of 6-8 penalty points.  The police also have wide powers to stop vehicles and inspect certificates and the facility to obtain online information regarding your insurance position.

Careless and Dangerous Driving

In England the CPS suggests that the worst cases of using a mobile phone or MP3 player while at the wheel could land drivers with up to two years in prison. Worst cases of death by dangerous driving should be charged with manslaughter, the CPS says. We can expect that the authorities in Scotland will have close regard to our neighbour’s viewpoint and may adopt a similar stance.
