Nottingham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 22, 2008 -- Keepmedriving.com - launch of a comprehensive new web site and legal service designed to assist all drivers, both private and commercial, who encounter problems with road traffic legislation or who fall foul of the UK's ever more complex driving laws.
Created by UK-based, multi-office firm Richard Nelson Solicitors, the service aims to provide both on-line 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 license 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 offenses were committed during 2006. Cameras provided evidence for 1.99 million speeding offenses (95 per cent of all speeding offenses), 164,900 were mobile phone related offenses 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 license by being disqualified can be a devastating blow - not just for the driver but for their whole family. Loss of a license 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 realize that having points on your license can increase your insurance costs. We aim to help them avoid getting those points and, in the worst case scenario, losing their license".
The Keepmedriving web site, 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 offenses and other driving law related matters.
