Traffic and Crime

We're By Your Side

Free, legal support on traffic and crime related matters

Have you been caught speeding, drink driving or committing a traffic offence?

Traffic Offences

Traffic offences fall under a highly complex area of the law. There are many ways you can receive a traffic fine, traffic offence or lose your licence, including being caught for:

  • Speeding (either by police radar or a speed camera)
  • Using a mobile phone while driving
  • Ignoring traffic signals
  • Failing to wear a seatbelt
  • Drunk driving (driving under the influence of alcohol)
  • Drug driving (driving under the influence of a prohibited substance)
  • Reckless or negligent driving
  • Driving while suspended or disqualified

In providing that advice, the Centre will:

  • Give you information and explain what the offence means
  • Advise you of the impact such an offence could have on your ability to continue driving
  • Help you decide whether to plead guilty or not guilty
  • Advise on the penalties that might apply
  • Tell you how to prepare for your court appearance
  • Answer questions about what to expect on the day
  • Refer you to Traffic Offenders Programs in your area.  
  • If you are faced with serious consequences from a traffic offence we can refer you to the Local Legal Aid office or private solicitors.

Traffic Clinic at Wyong Local Court

On Monday mornings, a solicitor from the Centre is at the Wyong Local Court to provide advice and assistance to clients who have a traffic matter in court that day. This is a drop in service and you do not need to make an appointment.

If we cannot help you on the day, we will give you a referral to another legal service that may be able to provide you with assistance.
