Testimonials


Went to Mr Walker after having the misfortune to instruct two other firms before him. Needless to say the other firms did not provide me with any real hope or decent advice.
, Glasgow Justice of the Peace

I was on 9 points and facing a ban which could have had serious implications at my work never mind my family - having 2 young children needing nurseries etc. When charged I was unsure what to do but arranged a meeting to discuss and from that point on Graham and his team put me at ease and gave me confidence all the way through the long drawn out process that i had a case and that i could win it. This is a specialist area and their knowledge and experience means they are in a strong position before you start. A year down the line they managed to get my case thrown out in court so it has worked out the best investment i have made. I would suggest anyone who is charged in a road incident gives them a call - you have nothing to lose and Graham is fantastic.Thank you so much Roadtrafficlaw.com.

Using a Mobile Phone While Driving|Legal Advice

You are driving, your phone goes off: what should you do?

The definition of Using a Mobile Phone While Driving is the use of a mobile-device which “must be held at some point during the course of making or receiving a call or performing any other interactive communication function.” Just to be clear, ‘Interactive communication’ is classified as sending/receiving of ‘data’ from any handheld device, i.e making Phone calls, sending/reading Text messages, picture messages or using the internet.

There is a very fine line between was does, and does not, constitute a breach of the law for using a mobile phone while driving. Technically, you can pick the phone up to check the time and put it back down again, and this is not illegal. However if you were to pick the phone up, click the button and a text message was displayed on the screen: by looking at this text message you have broken the law! The police will not take the time to have a discussion with you to ascertain what you were doing with a phone in your hand. If seen to be holding a phone while driving the police WILL pull you over and issue you with a ticket for using a mobile phone while driving.

Using a Mobile Phone While Driving: don't take the risk

Using a Mobile Phone While Driving: don’t take the risk

If you are driving and do not; 1) have a hands free kit installed, or 2) use a cradle attached to your windscreen for your phone to sit on, then put your phone on silent and only respond to the person once you are parked; this means at the side of the road, with your keys out of the ignition and handbrake on. Anything other than that and you are giving the police an excuse to write you a ticket…

You are driving, your phone goes off: what NOT to do!
