ROAD TRAFFIC LAW
FSK Solicitors can assist in all matters related to Road Traffic law, including speeding, NCT, tax, insurance, careless driving and dangerous driving offences.
Section 4 of the Road Traffic Act 2010, reduced the drink driving alcohol limits for all drivers. They also differentiate between experienced drivers and new drivers – those with learner permits or who hold a driving licence for 2 years or less, or have no valid licence/permit. Lower alcohol limits apply to new drivers than those that apply to experienced drivers.
The lower alcohol limits applying to new drivers also apply to drivers of buses, lorries, trailers, work vehicles, taxis and other public service vehicle drivers.
We provide a comprehensive service for driving related offences. The consequences of committing a driving offence in Ireland can lead to paying a fine, receiving penalty points, disqualification from driving and/or imprisonment.
For further information about driving offences or “drink driving” laws in Ireland please contact us. We can consult with you prior to the hearing, liaise with Gardai, represent you at court, secure a Gary Doyle Order (copies of evidence and statements from Gardai), review evidence and advise on a possible defence. We can apply on your behalf for restoration of a driving licence if you have received a disqualification that is more than two years. We can make this application after half of the disqualification period has lapsed. If successful your licence could be restored after two thirds of the disqualification period.
