Demerit Point Reduction

A city traffic light with a red light cameraPeople who receive fines for speeding, driving through a red light or talking on a mobile telephone often simply pay the fine without considering the full consequences.

Did you know that by paying the fine you are admitting guilt and accepting the maximum demerit points for the offence?

When these demerit points add up to the required number, your licence will be disqualified by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles. The number of points that result in disqualification varies with the type of licence you hold.

Did you know that in certain circumstances if you do not pay the fine and elect to be prosecuted, a Court may order a demerit point reduction in respect of an offence? This may remove the trigger for disqualification by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles.

Williams Barristers and Solicitors are experienced in successfully making applications to reduce demerit points and will provide sound advice and representation.

If you are in this situation contact the Adelaide traffic law experts at Williams Barristers & Solicitors to discuss your particular circumstances before you pay the traffic fine.
