Motoring Offence Law

If you’re being convicted of a motoring offence it can be a harrowing experience that has a life-changing impact not just on you but in most cases on your family as well. You could face penalty points on your licence, a significant fine or in more serious cases jail time.

Motoring offences can range from speeding, drink driving and drug driving to careless or dangerous driving, failing to stop or report an accident or failing to provide driver details and motoring law is not always easy to navigate, so getting specialist advice from experienced motoring lawyers is vital.

Whether you need legal representation for a motoring offence, or have received a Notice of Intended Prosecution you need to respond to our motorist defence team at Rotheras can help. We would advise contacting our team as soon as you can, as delaying the process of dealing with any type of motoring offence can result in an increased penalty or losing the chance to appeal.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.
