Traffic Light Offences

If caught failing to comply with traffic lights, one is open to prosecution and conviction. As with many of this sort of offence you will be summonsed to appear at Court on a certain day. If convicted, you will be liable to a fine and points on your licence. If you already had points on your licence, this could result in you being disqualified from driving for accumulating too many points. Lay clients can either brief a barrister through a solicitor or they can come direct to a barrister under the public access, or as it is sometimes known direct access, scheme.
