Construction and Use Offences
Construction and use offences are covered under Section 41 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. The type of motoring offences which fall within this section relate to the condition of the vehicle and it’s weight, the use of trailers and modifications to name but a few.
In our extensive experience successfully defending or even mitigating construction and use offences requires a high level of expertise and an unrivalled knowledge of road traffic law and driving protocols. Quite often drivers are charged with a construction and use offence whilst driving at work despite adhering to their employers or accepted industry standards. Also, drivers are regularly stopped for driving with bald or defective tyres and there may be some dubiety over the depth of the tyre tread or the accuracy of the measurements taken by the police.
These situations are a prime example of situations where specialist legal representation can assist in ensuring that the court don’t simply take the word of the police above yours and that the technical and often complex evidence can be presented in a fashion to avoid you receiving unnecessary penalty points.
