How can PTT Traffic Tickets help you fight a seatbelt ticket?
PTT Traffic Tickets prepares for every seatbelt case by ordering and reviewing the Police Officer’s notes and disclosure evidence before we attend court on your behalf. This ensures that our team of professionals are always prepared to represent you before we have even walked into the courtroom.
Driving with an inoperative seatbelt or being charged as a passenger not wearing a seatbelt does not carry any demerit points. However, any other seatbelt infraction carries two demerit points against your driver’s license.
We fight against a seatbelt ticket by understanding your case completely. Each case is treated uniquely by our team.
Our team gathers the case notes, understands charges, and determines if we can claim a reasonable doubt or claim due diligence.
