If you have been charged with a traffic offence, what will happen? Much depends on how serious the charge is. A good criminal lawyer will tell you that minimum penalties for various offences have been pre-set and the court must apply these at the very least. They can also give a higher penalty if they think it is deserved, but not one that is lower than the minimum.
If your traffic offence is a serious one the best thing to do is contact a criminal lawyer and ask his or her advice. If you are not sure how serious it is you can find out by going online to a traffic authority website, but it is better to consult a lawyer because there could be extenuating circumstances that may reduce the penalty in your case. Each case is different and will be judged accordingly.
You can be sure that your offence is serious if you were breaking a traffic law and someone died or was seriously injured as a result. However, there are other serious offences too, which is why a lawyer is needed. A lawyer will know the likely outcome of your offence and will be able to gather evidence you need to help your case in court. They will also represent you in court if you wish.
