Informed legal advice on Road Traffic law

If you are to be prosecuted for a motoring offence, taking informed legal advice at the very earliest stage is the first step to minimising your risk. Switalskis Criminal Defence team has a wealth of experience and our lawyers specialise purely in criminal law. We can offer advice from the outset and representation in Courts at all levels.

Typical examples of our expertise are:

  • Section 172 notices
  • Speeding
  • Driving over the alcohol limit
  • Failing to provide a specimen
  • Careless or dangerous driving
  • No insurance
  • Medical fitness to drive

A request under the Freedom of Information Act for numbers of speed cameras revealed that there are over 5000 fixed camera locations in England and Wales and estimates are in excess of 8000 when mobile cameras are taken into account. Government revenue received from motoring offences has been calculated at the rate of £200-00 per minute.

*Speeding is one of an increasing number of offences that can jeopardise your driving licence. Disqualifications are widespread and it is a common misconception that the loss of a job will prevent disqualification in many cases.

Motoring Law and Road Traffic Defence – Funding your case

If you are being prosecuted for a motoring offence, it is essential to take informed legal advice from experts. Without proper advice and representation, the risk of losing your driving licence is much higher.

If you are concerned about the cost of representation, we will help you to find a payment plan that suits your budget. Our range of payment options includes low-cost and interest-free finance to help you spread the cost of our specialist motoring law advice.

Switalskis motoring law team offers excellent value for money. We will provide accurate estimates of our fees, and our position as a Legal Services Commission Category 1 firm means that we have effective systems in place to ensure we are very competitive when compared to the costs of other firms who specialise in this area.

In limited cases a Representation Order (Legal Aid) may be available, and our Road Traffic Law specialists will advise you about this.
