Expert Adelaide Traffic Lawyers
It’s easy to think “it is only a traffic offence”; however, traffic offences can have serious implications for you, your family and other members of the public.
Penalties ranging from substantial fines, licence disqualification and imprisonment can apply for traffic offences including drink driving, drug driving, speeding offences and driving without due care. Causing injury or death by negligent driving and or driving under a disqualification are viewed so seriously that in the absence of extenuating circumstances, imprisonment will result.

Our extensive experience of the investigation process ensures that your matter is considered thoroughly and all avenues for defence explored.
