Minor road traffic offences in the UK

For speeding offences in the UK, an individual can be stopped in traffic by the police and can receive a penalty or a driving ban. He can raise the issue that no traffic sign related to speed limit was on the road. Minor accidents in traffic can end up with bumped cars or with injured individuals. Such situations require the driver to remain at the scene of the accident and to wait for the police officer to come and investigate the circumstances of the accident. Leaving the scene of the accident means committing a serious crime according to Section 170 Road Traffic Act 1988.  Minor collisions may end up with fines and some penalty points, but one should know that he can appeal the police decision with the help of our lawyers.
