New UK Web Site Helps Motorists in Trouble with the Law
Keepmedriving.com and Richard Nelson Solicitors launch new website and legal service to assist with private and commercial driving and road traffic problems. The website contains a wide range of information relating to driving and road traffic law with detailed guidance on offences relating to speeding, dangerous driving, hgv problems, licences, drink driving, mobile phone offences, insurance offences and MOT's.
Provided by multi-office firm Richard Nelson Solicitors, keepmedriving.com aims to provide both online guidance and advice as well as offering motorists a range of other methods for getting the most practical and up-to-date advice as quickly as possible.
Speaking about the service, Richard Nelson said “The chances of losing your licence are far greater today than they have ever been – and often it is not the inconsiderate or reckless driver who suffers, but simply the ordinary man in the street who has been caught on a speed camera or who simply was not aware of the rules which applied. ”
Recent surveys show that four out of every five drivers admit to speeding on motorways and as many as two thirds speed on other roads.
Meanwhile, government statistics show that 12.7 million road traffic offences were committed during 2006. Cameras provided evidence for 1.99 million speeding offences (95 per cent of all speeding offences), 164,900 were mobile phone related offences and 186,00 for careless driving.
Jonathan Wright, solicitor at the Richard Nelson Solicitors Cardiff office, and the person heading up this initiative, said “Losing a driving licence by being disqualified can be a devastating blow – not just for the driver but for their whole family. Loss of a licence can mean loss of a job, reduced mobility and an increase in family pressures. Our aim is to help drivers avoid this”.
Jonathan said “Many drivers don’t realise that having points on your licence can increase your insurance costs. We aim to help them avoid getting those points and, in the worst case scenario, losing their licence”.
The Keepmedriving website, which contains a wide range of driving law information and guidance, has already received a substantial number of hits and is being backed up by a radio advertising campaign. It will continue to be developed so as to act as a first port of call for those seeking information and assistance in relation to road traffic offences and other driving law related matters.
