The first supplement to the 31st edition of Wilkinson’s Road Traffic Offences brings the main work up to date to April 1, 2024 and deals with the developments in road traffic law since the publication of the 31st edition in 2023.

Coverage includes:

  • Changes relating to electrically assisted pedal cycles and scooters;
  • The amendments affecting entitlements to drive of those with EEA issued licences;
  • Duties on drivers and operators of taxis or private hire vehicles in relation to passengers with disabilities;

In-depth commentary on latest case law including:

  • KBC v Verzekeringen – legitimacy of excluding electrically assisted pedals cycles form the definition of a ‘motor vehicle’;
  • R v ZA [2023] – approach to sentencing of young offenders;
  • R v Butt and Jenkins [2023] and R v Clark [2023] – approach for a Crown Court dealing with errors arising from committal to that court;
  • R v Norman [2023] – limits to issues on which an expert can give an opinion;
  • R. v Janjua [2024] – approach to sentence where the driving is very bad and there are others offences committed;
  • Hazard v Glasgow City Council [2023] and Commercial Plant Services [2023] – effect of defects in signage in relation to bus lanes and red route;
  • Aviva Insurance Limited v Alistair McCoist and Another [2023] – meaning of giving permission to drive in the context of insurance;
  • Royle and others v R [2023] – sentencing of those who have given significant assistance to the enforcement or prosecuting authorities;
  • R. v Marshall [2023] – approach where there has been an interim disqualification on committal for sentence but sentencing takes place more than 6 months after that disqualification was imposed;
  • Application of Miller v DPP [2004] in relation to whether delays attributable to the Covid pandemic can be ‘mitigating circumstances’ for the purposes of totting up disqualification.
