Motoring & Road Traffic Offences

1ITL provide specialist advice and advocacy on the full range of motoring and road traffic offences.

We fully understand the gravity of the consequences of such offences, and in particular the serious practical ramifications of disqualification, particularly for those who drive for a living. Our dedicated road traffic team is therefore committed to ensuring that every defence available is presented as forcefully as possible. Our barristers excel in using their detailed subject knowledge of the complexities of Road Traffic Law to deploy technical legal arguments to maximise your chances of a satisfactory outcome. Our expertise is recognised by the many leading motor insurers who instruct our barristers. We also regularly act on instructions from private clients.

Our road traffic team provide comprehensive advice and represent in the following areas:

  • Speeding offences
  • 'Totting up' (The Totting up procedure is enforced when a driver reaches 12 penalty points within any 3 year period)
  • Careless or dangerous driving
  • Drink or drug impaired driving
  • Failing to provide a specimen
  • Driving whilst disqualified
  • Driving without insurance
  • Failing to stop or report an accident
  • Failing to give information as to the identity of a driver (Notice of Intended Prosecution)
  • Appeals against conviction and / or sentence
  • Death by careless or dangerous driving

1ITL can be instructed at any stage of proceedings, from practical advice on strategy and evidence at an early stage, through to advocacy at trial and, if necessary, on appeal.

We accept instructions from solicitors, public bodies and via public access.
