The traffic offences most commonly charged are relatively minor, such as for speeding or running a red light. Many people who are accused of committing one of these traffic offences are likely to receive a fixed penalty ticket. Acceptance of a fixed penalty ticket for a minor driving offence, such as speeding, amounts to an admission of guilt, usually attracting a fine and penalty points. You, therefore, retain the right to challenge the charge in court.
If you have been presented with a fixed penalty ticket for a minor offence and considering whether to contest it or pay the fine and accept the consequences, our specialist traffic offence solicitors can help. We will look at all the circumstances and provide advice on the options open to you.
