Testimonials


Thank you Mr Walker for saving me from a driving ban. I was referred to you by a Sheriff who comes into my restaurant. He said that you were not the cheapest but were the best! He was right although I thought the fee was a bit high at first I soon realised it was good value for money when you told me that due to something in the procedure of the case you were taking the matter to the court of appeal in Edinburgh and it would not cost me another penny. You won the case at the High court and my speeding charge got thrown out of court. Many thanks. I will recommend you to other.

Wow Wow Wow I have had these cases worrying me sleepless for months, one telephone call and a quick visit to the Glasgow Office and I had the first case dismissed without even having to give evidence, just had a call to say the Mobile Case calling tomorrow has also now been dismissed, these cases would have cost me my licence, I can't believe how efficient and smart these guys are, they certainly know the Traffic Law inside out and Back to Front, if you need a Road Traffic Lawyer these are definitely the guys to come to.

Motorcyclists | Speeding Motorcyclists

A speeding motor cyclist can be a problem for other road users particularly on country roads with limited opportunities of sight. The sound of a big harley roaring up behind your tinny wee 1.1L car can scare the be jeesus out of everyone, not just new drivers. We then see stupid reactions causing the the motor cyclist to pay the ultimate price.

All motor cyclists know that the real problem always has been and always will be “Visibility” has that man in the tin box seen you. He looked at you, you looked at him but then he STILL pulled out in front of you

If you know your Sportsbikes from your Cruisers, your Standard bike from your Touring bike, your Ducati Diavel from your BMW K1600GT? If so then congratulations, you know more about motorbikes than us. What we DO understand, however, is how road traffic law affects motorcyclists and the concerns that many motorcyclists have when using their bikes on the road.

Whereas the Highway Code is always at pains to stress to car drivers the vulnerability of motorcyclists, it appears that motorcyclists are often the focus of police attention for very different reasons. Please consider the following excerpt from The Central Scotland Police Annual Report for 2011-12 which specifically referred to the behaviour of motorcyclists ostensibly with the aim of reducing road deaths and injuries:

We read today in the national press that a massive police initiative in Scotland focused on bike riders but ironically it netted many more car drivers than motor cyclists with 950 prosecutions about 40 of whom were speeding motor cyclists.

“Officers took part in enforcement campaigns and initiatives, such as Bike Safe and Around the Corner, to help educate motorcyclists to drive safely and responsibly.”

The Scottish police have clearly earmarked motorcyclists as a group meriting particular attention and worthy of targeted ‘enforcement campaigns’.

We are also aware from our motorcyclist clients that there is an undercurrent of feeling that motorcyclists are treated more harshly by the courts than car drivers for ostensibly similar offences. Regular readers of the motorcycle magazine MCN will be aware of numerous instances of UK bikers receiving custodial sentences for travelling at speeds deemed ‘dangerous’.

If you are a motorcyclist and you are accused of a road traffic offence, our advice is therefore to seek legal representation as soon as possible. We are here to help so call us to arrange a FREE consultation today.
Commissioner is inappropriate we can also advise you on your rights of appeal.
