Many of our road traffic clients come to us charged with mobile phone use whilst driving, where the police have alleged – wrongly – that our clients have been seen driving a car or vehicle whilst using their mobile phone. If convicted of a mobile phone offence whilst driving, this can mean 3 penalty points on a driving licence and a significant financial penalty being imposed.
These penalty points for mobile phone use whilst driving may also lead to a driving disqualification or being banned from driving, so defending your road traffic case well in court and ensuring you avoid a driving disqualification or ban becomes even more important.
We have great success in defending drivers’ mobile phone cases, utilising specialist knowledge and services which other road traffic defence lawyers do not do.
We are able to retrieve your telephone records from your telephone provider to assist in proving you were not using your mobile phone at the time, as well as directly challenging the crown case and the police witnesses’ accounts of what happened.
For some drivers however, they accept using their mobile phone whilst driving. Using our skills and experience as road traffic lawyers, we are able to achieve the best outcome by reducing the financial penalty imposed and mitigating the circumstances in their case, or alternatively undertaking either Exceptional Hardship Proof or Special Reasons Proof for our clients to achieve the required outcomes.
