Professional, friendly,, Informative service was provided from my initial consultation to final satisfactory conclusion. I was completely satisfied with the outcome of my case and would have no hesitation in recommending this firm to others. The result in my case was that the case was dismissed!

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.

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.
