Wheatley’s Road Traffic Law in Scotland is a highly regarded source of reference for all those involved in the detection and prosecution of road traffic offences with all the relevant law and authority presented in a clear and accessible style.
The fifth edition of this authoritative text has been updated to reflect the many legislative changes brought into force in the past seven years by the Road Safety Act 2006 including;
• a range of death by driving offences and a new offence of serious injury by dangerous driving.
• the issue of causation in section 3ZB cases of causing death by driving unlicensed, disqualified or uninsured.
This edition updates case law and takes account of the focused priorities of Police Scotland and guidance on matters such as careless driving by the Lord Advocate.
Consideration is also given to possible statutory changes given further devolution of power under the Scotland Act 2012.
An essential purchase for all practitioners involved with road traffic law in Scotland
