Road Traffic Law is a specialised and technical area of law because there are currently 13 Road Traffic Acts and hundreds of statutory instruments.
Common road traffic offences include driving without a licence or insurance, careless and dangerous driving and drink driving offences. There are in fact numerous road traffic offences.
Most road traffic offences are prosecuted in the District Court and the penalties include penalty points, fines and disqualification from driving.
If summoned to Court for a road traffic offence it is always advisable to instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf.
Criminal Law is an area of law which perhaps more than others continues to change and develop. Most criminal prosecutions in Ireland are brought by the Director of Public Prosecutions on behalf of the state.
It is extremely important that a person who is either charged with an offence or receives a summons to attend Court obtain legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity.
