Traffic law in NSW is an area of law in which traffic offences carry heavy penalties, long disqualification periods and jail terms are a real possibility. Predominantly people need advice and representation for offences such as drink/drug driving, speeding, manners dangerous, driving dangerously or at a speed or manner occasioning grievous bodily harm or death. The Police must comply with legal requirements when prosecuting people for traffic offences. For example, there are time limitations in respect to being required to submit to a breath test and breath analysis. It is our in-depth knowledge of this area of the law gained from a combined experience of in excess of 50 years as traffic lawyers that we can assist you with licence appeals and defending charges.

What is a habitual offender?
Crawford & Duncan Lawyers are Traffic Law Experts. They can help you reach the best possible outcome. One thing they strive to ensure with every client is clarity of communication, and procedure followed as required. Legal definitions are part of the processes involved. The Court of Law NSW determines drivers who accumulate 3 findings of guilt for serious offenses within 5 years as a 'habitual offender'. This carries with it a heavy penalty for which the accused should be made aware. They will be disqualified from driving for 5 years unless a court rules otherwise. This will be in addition to any disqualification resulting from the third major offense.
Can you still make an appeal to the courts?
Crawford & Duncan Lawyers have a solid understanding of the habitual offender legislation and its implications relative to their client's case, history, and appeal. In conjunction with the Traffic Offenders Program, Les Crawford and Michelle Duncan have successfully appealed the most severe of habitual offender penalties.
