Vehicle Related Offences
Vehicle-related offences include the use of a vehicle with brakes, steering or tyres which are defective or in a dangerous condition. While considered ‘minor’ offences, some carry fines of up to £2500 and 3 penalty points and to some this can have a significant negative impact on lifestyle and work.
For example, if you are a professional driver and the three points takes you to the 12 point maximum you will receive an automatic driving ban which could cost you your job
In any case, enlisting expert legal assistance as early as possible will give you the best chance of a less detrimental outcome. There are many areas of the law which only a qualified, experienced specialist solicitor will be aware of which may have a bearing on your case.
For example, the procedures of police and prosecution must be examined to ensure your case is being handled fairly at all stages, and there may be mitigating circumstances surrounding your case which would lead to a more lenient penalty.
