Being charged with a Traffic offence may affect your future. Whether it be Speeding, Drink Driving or Driving whilst disqualified. The consequences can be severe.
A driver’s license is your golden ticket to motorised freedom. That piece of plastic is your key to employment opportunities, going shopping and seeing loved ones. If you have received notification of a traffic offence, and are at risk of losing your license, you may be thinking ‘what should I do next?’.
For some, finding a job is hard enough let alone trying to find a job without a license, especially here in Newcastle. With over 80% of adults in New South Wales having their driver’s license, you may find it very hard to compete if you cannot drive.
Being charged with a traffic offence may seem trivial at first glance. However, the consequences can be very serious. This is undoubtedly true if this is not your first driving or traffic charge.
If you have been charged with a traffic offence you may have to go to court to face the charges.
If properly represented the Court system can be used to protect your legal rights. The Court will determine whether you committed the offence and if you did if you deserve to be punished. For the Court to adequately do their job they will listen to both sides and see whether the Police or RMS have proved their case beyond reasonable doubt.
A poor outcome in Court could see you lose your licence for an extended period of time and heavy fines. At worst, you may also face jail time!
