Drink and drug driving charges, as well as many other traffic offences, can have a significant impact on your current and/or future employment. They can also restrict your ability to undertake general and/or family commitments.
If you are found guilty of a traffic offence, the court may record a criminal conviction and your driver licence might be disqualified. For certain offences the licence disqualification can be as high as 5 years. Depending on the seriousness of the offence, you might even be at risk of going to gaol.
Negligent, dangerous and culpable driving offences which cause death or grievous bodily harm are incredibly serious and also all carry potential gaol time.
It is crucial that you have an experienced traffic lawyer to properly prepare and present your case to assist you in getting the best possible outcome.
If you are considering filing a licence appeal for an exceed speed or demerit points suspension in NSW, an application to remove licence disqualification periods, or an application to obtain a restricted (work) licence in the ACT, you should also seek legal advice as soon as possible.
