Traffic Law – Ken Bates Perth Lawyer


Traffic Law

In recent years the Traffic Law in Western Australia has become increasingly complex.  As a Specialist Traffic Lawyer, Ken Bates has an up to date knowledge of recent changes to the law, the practice and procedure and relevant Appellate Court decisions relating to how the law is interpreted, relevant defences as well as relevant sentencing considerations.

Ken Bates is well equipped to advise you on whether you have a defence to a traffic charge.  If there is no defence to the traffic charge and you plead guilty, Ken Bates can advise you on the range of sentences and periods of disqualification and present a plea in mitigation to the Court to seek the minimum possible penalty and period of disqualification.

If you have been disqualified by a court from holding or obtaining a driver’s licence, then an application can be made for an Extraordinary Driver’s Licence (EDL) to enable you for example, to drive to and from work if the relevant criteria is met.
