    Driving Violations We Defend Against

    At Sarah Leamon Law, we offer defence services against a comprehensive range of driving violations, including:

    90 Day Prohibition:

    Facing a 90-day prohibition can be daunting. This prohibition is typically issued when a driver fails or refuses a breathalyzer test. At Sarah Leamon Law, we understand the gravity of such prohibitions and work diligently to challenge them, ensuring your rights are upheld.

    Dangerous Driving:

    Dangerous driving charges can arise from various situations, from excessive speeding to overtaking where it’s unsafe. Such charges can lead to severe penalties, including imprisonment. Our team is experienced in defending against these charges, ensuring you get a fair trial.

    Driving At or Over 0.05 BAC:

    Driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.05 or higher, though less than 0.08, can still lead to driving prohibitions and fines. We help clients understand their rights and navigate the legal complexities associated with such charges.

    Driving at or Over 0.08 BAC:

    Driving with a BAC of 0.08 or higher is a criminal offence and can lead to severe consequences, including a criminal record. Our team is adept at challenging such charges, from questioning the accuracy of breathalyzer tests to ensuring proper legal procedures were followed.

    Responding to a Driving Prohibition Letter:

    Receiving a driving prohibition letter can be distressing. Such letters often come from the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles and can be based on various reasons, from medical issues to multiple traffic violations. We assist clients in responding to these letters, ensuring their driving privileges are protected.

    Defending against Driving While Prohibited charges:

    Driving while prohibited is a serious offence and can lead to further prohibitions, fines, and even jail time. Our team is experienced in defending clients against these charges, ensuring they receive a fair defence.

    Addressing a Notice of Intent to Prohibit:

    A Notice of Intent to Prohibit is issued when there’s an intention to prohibit someone from driving. This can be due to accumulating too many penalty points or other reasons. We help clients address these notices, ensuring their rights are upheld.

    Contesting Violation Tickets:

    From speeding tickets to parking violations, we assist clients in contesting violation tickets. We understand that every ticket can impact your driving record and insurance premiums, and we work diligently to challenge unjust tickets.

    Your defence Begins Now

    Don’t let an IRP or any other driving offence dictate the course of your life. With Sarah Leamon Law by your side, you have a fighting chance to protect your rights, your license, and your future.
