Road Traffic Offences

Our road traffic offences barristers have a comprehensive understanding and experience of advising and acting on all areas of road traffic law and associated motoring and driving offences.

With a strong reputation as one of leading Crime chambers in London and the South East, our barristers offer individuals and organisations high-level, well-informed advice on the prospects of a successful road traffic defence and the best strategy for preparing for trial.

We are known for having particular strength in cross examining medical and road collision experts, technical challenges to the admissibility of evidence (breath samples, speed cameras etc) and consideration and deployment of defences including automatism, insanity, duress, mechanical defects and the “hip flask” defence.

Members of Red Lion Chambers are regularly instructed by specialist road traffic offences solicitors, criminal defence solicitors and commercial law solicitors, who manage the criminal cases of their business clients. Clients who are involved in road traffic accidents can also approach us directly using the Direct Access Scheme.
