PINE RIVERS TRAFFIC LAWYERS
Court, Pine Rivers, Special Hardship Order
A 29 year old man from Samford, employed as a contractor in the cross Brisbane tunnel recently applied to have a Special Hardship Order granted for a period of 6 months at the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court recently. The male had accumulated a number of demerit points offences over a period of 18 months when he was issued with a warning notice from Qld Transport advising that he would be issued with a Good Behaviour Licence for a period of 12 months. This came as a wake up call to the male and he complied being of good behaviour until he was detected by police making a u- turn at the traffic lights when there was no sign. The male was then advised that his licence would be suspended for a period of 3 months on the basis of a loss of points. The male approached Pine Rivers Traffic Lawyers and asked for legal advice. The person was deemed eligible after he spoke with Jamie Whitehead, solicitor who checked the legislation. An application was made within the time frames and the male was issued with the licence on the basis not having a Special Hardship Order would cause extreme financial hardship to the applicants family. There were a number of conditions imposed, includiung that the male would have to maintain a log book and travel only for the purposes of getting to and from work by the most direct route. The male can still maintain his employment in these tight economic times.
The Special Hardship Order deals with matters separately to a work licence application or restricted licence which are exclusive to drink driving offences.
