Traffic Offences

We provide our clients with straightforward, well-considered and practical legal advice when it comes to managing traffic infringement proceedings to deliver the best outcome in the circumstances.

If you are charged by police with a traffic offence, it is important that you understand the charges, and their potential consequences.

The law relating to traffic offences is often complex, and it is important to get clear and concise legal advice regarding your liability, your likely penalty, and other ramifications.

Some minor traffic offences will result in general demerit point deductions, fines, licence disqualification and/or licence suspension. Other more serious offences or repeated offences may require appearance before a court and can sometimes lead to sentences of actual imprisonment.

Our team can assist you with:

  • Work Licence Applications;
  • General advice on demerit points and licence disqualification and suspension;
  • Special Hardship Order Applications;
  • Disqualified and unlicensed driving offences;
  • Drink driving offences;
  • Drug driving offences;
  • Careless driving offences;
  • Speeding offences;
  • Dangerous driving offences; and
  • Infringement notices.

Nyst Legal’s experienced criminal and traffic lawyers work with our clients to manage traffic infringement proceedings by providing straightforward, well-considered and practical legal advice to deliver the best outcome in the circumstances.
