When most of us think of different legal issues, traffic offences tend to land somewhere towards the ‘less severe’ end of the spectrum. Indeed, the average traffic infraction does not have the same gravity as, say, a drug trafficking charge. However, it’s important to remember that traffic offences can be far-reaching, depending on the nature of the prosecution and the driver in question.
At Williamson & Associates, we will treat your traffic charge with respect and the gravity it deserves. Our team of solicitors frequently focuses on criminal offences, but we are also highly experienced as traffic lawyers in Brisbane. Whether you are staring down the barrel of a speeding ticket, a charge related to an accident, a drunk driving charge or something else, we will help you to prepare the proper legal defence.
Understanding the Severity of Certain Traffic Offences
The misconception of traffic law infractions being ‘less severe’ than other types of legal matters probably relates back to moving violations. The most common traffic violations, of course, are the least serious ones. Speeding, failing to obey a road sign or traffic signal or parking improperly are all things that can pose a risk to safety or property, but typically don’t require the full defence of a traffic solicitor in Brisbane.
In most cases, to get past a moving violation, you will merely need to pay a fine. However, if you accumulate too many moving violations, you could be at risk for having your driving licence disqualified. In other words, no traffic offence can be considered a ‘laughing matter,’ simply due to where they can eventually lead.
More serious offences—such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or dangerous driving—could stick you with lengthier disqualifications, as well as criminal convictions or even prison sentences.
