Road Traffic Law
There are a variety of different road traffic offences ranging from running a red light, driving whilst using a mobile phone to death caused by dangerous driving.
McGovern Reid pride ourselves on consistently getting results for clients who have been charged with driving offences. Our experienced team regularly appear in the Justice of the Peace Courts and Sheriff Courts defending prosecutions under the Road Traffic Act 1988 and other related offences.
Our Managing Partner, Bobby Reid, regularly receives instructions from corporate firms when their clients face a road traffic prosecution.

Given the variety of types of road traffic offences, it is extremely important that you seek legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity to ensure the best possible outcome in your case.
One of the most common matters that we deal with is a client facing a disqualification under what are known as “totting up” rules. In short, if you have accumulated 12 points on your licence, the court is automatically obliged to impose a driving ban of 6 months for the first “totting up” offence. If you are a new driver (if you have only qualified within the last 2 years) and accumulate 6 penalty points on your licence, the law says that the DVLA has to revoke- or take away- your licence.
Whether your licence is essential for your job, to take your children to school, or even because you live in a rural area with the nearest town miles away, we know that your driving licence is precious to you and we will do our best to prevent you losing it. There are legal tests such as “exceptional hardship” and “special reasons” which we regularly and successfully argue in Court to prevent our clients being disqualified.
We have extensive experience in dealing with road traffic offences and have a proven track record in protecting our clients’ licences. Whether you have been charged with a minor road traffic offence or the offence is more serious, McGovern Reid are ideally placed to help you.
