Have you ever found yourself on the wrong side of traffic law? It’s not something we’d wish on anyone, because a traffic infringement can be just as terrifying as being charged with a more serious crime. Some Perth traffic offences can result in lengthy prison sentences, large fines and long suspension periods. What can you do if you are charged with a driving offence? What can you do to prevent being charged?
It goes without saying that you should always practice safe driving techniques. Be aware that any distraction, even holding a conversation or listening to music, can be dangerous. Keep your radio at an average volume so you can hear what is happening around you and make sure you always obey the speed limit. It’s also important to note that you should never use headphones while driving.
Our team of leading traffic lawyers in Perth, WA offer this advice in the hope that you will never land in any trouble out on the road. But if you do and face a traffic infringement or other charge, you will need to know you can contact a reliable traffic lawyer.
If you’re looking for a traffic lawyer in Perth, we can offer our full services for traffic offences and any other offence. There are numerous reasons you might need a traffic lawyer for an offence committed on the road, and we cover them all. Whether you have been charged with reckless or dangerous driving, driving under the influence (DUI), or drink driving, we’re able to provide you with the representation you need.
To help us do this, it’s important you know how to respond after being involved in an incident on the road. After the incident, you should be noting down everything that has happened in as much detail as possible. It’s important that you get all the facts so that we can arrange the best representation possible.
If you are requested to do so by the police, you must identify the driver of your vehicle as well as provide your name, address and date of birth. Do not answer any further questions or participate in any interview until you have spoken to one of our Paxman & Paxman traffic lawyers. It’s important to not be argumentative with the police or resist arrest, however, if you think you were unfairly treated, our team of Perth-based traffic lawyers will handle this at a later stage.
One of the most common offences on the road is drink driving. The law takes a strict stance against drink drivers. This means that if you are charged for a drink driving offence, you’ll need an experienced traffic lawyer to represent you. To avoid facing this type of incident, we recommend that you don’t drink and drive at all. It’s incredibly easy to find yourself over the .05 blood alcohol limit without realising it. For that reason, it’s best not to risk the possibility by taking a chance; always drink responsibly.
However, if you are charged with this offence, you can count on our drink driving lawyers in Perth to help you. We can do this by negotiating with the prosecution, defending you at a hearing or sentence, or just providing you with the best possible advice before court. It’s important to get good advice because without it, an offence like this can result in a much harsher punishment than it may have had otherwise.
Driving under the influence (DUI) refers to driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. It carries severe penalties, from lengthy disqualifications to imprisonment. Responsible driving practices are paramount. But if you do face charges, you will want experienced DUI lawyers to help you with your case. This can include help obtaining an extraordinary license, which allows you to continue driving for specific purposes during your disqualification period.
As with drinking, you should not drive under the influence of drugs. The consequences of doing so reflect the seriousness of these situations. They make the services of DUI lawyers essential for protecting drivers’ rights and achieving the best possible outcome for cases. At Paxman & Paxman, our skilled DUI lawyers will help mitigate the impact of your charges.
It’s easy to think that if you obey the rules of the road, you will not have to deal with traffic law. But sometimes, the situation is out of your control. If you find yourself faced with a traffic offence, Oliver Paxman, Lana Paxman and their team can help.
