The majority of motor law is governed by the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 and these two acts are what make it illegal to commit various offences such as drink driving and speeding . There are also lesser known acts such as the Road Vehicles (Construction & Use) Regulations which are considered to be a legal minefield due to their scope and almost endless list of amendments over the years. Even the most experienced lawyers can struggle to interpret such regulations.
By comparison to general criminal law however, road traffic legislation is a small part of the bigger picture and is an extremely niche section of law.
If you are charged with any of the following offences we would urge you to contact us to speak to a specialist lawyer as it is likely that a general criminal practitioner will possess only the basic knowledge.
