Minor Traffic Offences: New Special Courts
One of the aims is to have as many cases as possible heard and decided at one hearing. Currently less than half of cases go ahead on the day they are first listed, and, on average, cases take over 6 months to be completed.
Another step will be that defendants may be dealt with in their absence.
When these new courts are up and running people will need to be aware of the new procedures, otherwise they might find their licence in jeopardy without realising it. If you feel you would like to know more, please contact a member of the Banner Team for further information.
