Motor and Traffic Law
This product will save the user valuable time in searching for motor and traffic law precedents and principles. There is no product on the Australian market with quite the same scope or coverage combined with ease of use and affordability. As with all of our products, we aim to be very practical and comprehensive so the user does not need to waste time searching elsewhere for relevant precedents.
Liability & Apportionment
The publication provides comprehensive coverage of motor and traffic law cases Australia-wide with particular emphasis on the liability and apportionment aspects of motor vehicle law.
Precedents are usefully summarized and indexed under logical headings and sub-headings so that users can find relevant cases on a particular road accident scenario in seconds.
Please see the product preview for a complete list of headings»
Civil Liability Acts & other motor and traffic legislation
The Australian Civil Liability Acts, and other legislation relevant to motor and traffic law, are also extensively annotated with case summaries and helpful interpretative judicial remarks. They can be conveniently found under the alphabetical heading of each state or territory. The e-version also has direct hyperlinks to the full text of the legislation.
The criminal aspects of motor and traffic law, especially sentencing for traffic offences, comprise about 25% of the material in the service. Comparative cases are easily found under annotations to each state* or territory’s criminal road traffic legislation. The Australian Road Rules are also annotated. See the product page on Kidd’s Traffic Law (Criminal) for more detail about the criminal side of this product. *Note, however, Victoria is not covered.
If you peruse the full table of contents in the product preview you will see why this publication needs to be in every law library, especially the libraries of every:
- Motor accident and criminal lawyer
- Motoring body
- Traffic authority
Given that the duties (as they pertain to motor and traffic law) of councils, employers, police officers, road authorities, schools and truck drivers etc, are also extensively canvassed in the included cases, Kidd & Darge’s Traffic Law will be of great benefit to many besides motor accident and criminal lawyers.
Journal articles are also included and indexed under appropriate headings.
