Traffic law affects every citizen in the land, whether he or she is a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian or an onlooker. This book sets out the principles of law governing traffic offences and accidents. Topics covered include:
- dangerous driving
- breath and blood tests
- accident duties
- road rules
- joy-riding; and
- claims for damages arising out of collisions
Significant changes have occurred to traffic law since the previous edition appeared a decade ago. The varying legislation in each of the six states and two territories has been amended, the Australian Road Rules have made their appearance, and there has been considerable growth in the case law. All of these developments are comprehensively covered in this latest edition.
Written primarily for lawyers, police officers, students, insurance companies, motoring organisations and motorists who need to understand the legal issues and problems in criminal and civil proceedings arising out of the driver of a motor vehicle, this book seeks to present the traffic law of the nation in a simple and tidy manner.
