Crown Court Or Magistrates Court?

Crown Court Or Magistrates Court?


Are s 172 Road Traffic Acts 1988 offences triable either way?

Dominic Says:

Thank you for your question. The answer is no. The vast majority of road traffic offences are summary only. This means that they can only be tried in the magistrates court.

You do not have the right to elect a crown court trial with a jury. Why do you ask? Tell me more about what has actually happened and I will be able to help further.
