The following case study is an example of the kind of Traffic Offence matters we deal with at Nardi Lawyers.

The Charges

Our client was facing the following charge:

  • Exceed Speed Limit by 45 km/h or more.

Our client had no criminal or traffic priors at the time of the offending.

What the police alleged

Our client allegedly exceeded the speed limit by 45 km/h or more.

How Nardi Lawyers helped

Our client accepted responsibility for speeding from the outset and intended on pleading guilty. Our primary objective was to ensure that our client’s licence disqualification period remained at the minimum mandatory period of 12 months, as well as avoiding a conviction.

As with any plea of guilty, our lawyers spent quality time in conference with the client to ensure that our preparation was perfect, and that all of the relevant information and personal circumstances were noted.


Our client pleaded guilty to a charge of Exceed Speed Limit by 45 km/h or more.

In Court, we tendered character references and gave submissions on our client’s behalf which were carefully constructed following our interviews with the client.

There were some significant personal circumstances present at the time of the offending, which unfortunately, could not form a defence. However, these issues were relevant to sentencing and were explained to the Court in the hearing.

Our client was sentenced to a small fine without conviction.

Our client’s driver’s licence was disqualified for the minimum mandatory period of 12 months.

If you have been charged with similar offences, we recommend that you call our office today, so we can help you achieve the best outcome possible.
