HABITUAL TRAFFIC OFFEDNER DECLARATIONS
Sometimes people fall into bad driving habits that become difficult to break out of. If you have been convicted of at least 2 traffic related offences, and are currently being charged with another traffic offence, and all the charges have been levied against you within a 5 year period, in addition to any disqualification period imposed by the court, the RTA will disqualify you for a further 5 years and you will be declared a ‘Habitual Traffic Offender’. There are only certain traffic offences which count towards such a declaration being made, including;
* Driving recklessly, furiously or at a speed dangerous to the public
* Driving negligently and causing death or grievous bodily harm
* Driving in a menacing manner
* Drink driving offences
* Refusing or failing a breath, blood, urine or oral test
* Altering a breath, blood, urine or oral test
* Driving more than 45 km over the speed limit
* Driving whilst disqualified, suspended or cancelled
* Making a false application for a drivers license
* Murder or manslaughter caused whilst driving
* Any other offence under the Crimes Act 1900
* Aiding, abetting, counselling or procuring the commission of one of the above offences
Needless to say, being declared a Habitual Traffic Offender will have serious consequences on your financial security, work prospects and freedom of movement.
The law surrounding Habitual Offender Declarations is complex and difficult to navigate. However, our traffic lawyers have the skill and expertise required have these suspension periods set aside or reduced in length by up to 3 years. We will ensure that your application is properly prepared, lodged and presented in a cogent and persuasive manner to the Judge or Magistrate hearing your case.
It is important to realize that you are able to apply for the Habitual Traffic Offender Declaration to be set aside or reduced at any time. We can assist you by providing expert legal representation when you are facing sentencing for a traffic offence, or if you have already been declared a Habitual Traffic Offender, we can assist you in making a fresh application to have the declaration set aside at any time afterwards.
