Dumfries Traffic Lawyer
Our Dumfries office opened in 2011 directly across the road from Dumfries Sheriff and Justice of the Peace Court. Dumfries Justice of the Peace Court deals with speeding cases in Dumfries normally detected on the A74(M) or the A75. We have delivered acquittals involving every type of speed detection device in Dumfries, be it the Unipar SL700, the LTI 20:20, calibrated speedometer, VASCAR, Provida... The list goes on. We have also been
responsible for retaining the licence of many a driver accused of dangerous driving in Dumfries and Galloway (contrary to section 2 of the Road Traffic Act 1988). Increasingly, we are being instructed to present arguments for exceptional hardship.
Although there is no parking available at the Court itself, there are many places to park within a 5 minute walk of the Court. A lot of the parking is free if you display a parking disk (available from local shops) and there is a long stay pay and display facility at Whitesands. There are coffee shops on Buccleuch Street and further (and markedly better) facilities within the town centre. The further you walk, the better the coffee.
