IF YOU’VE been charged with a traffic offence to appear in court you can expect the Magistrate to assume that you’ve conducted that type of behaviour on more than one occassion.
That is because becuase it’s generally considered that unsafe driving habits are actions repeated so often that they become habitual or sub-conscious.
It is the purpose of a driving diversionary program to ensure a clear line in the sand is drawn between past and furutre behaviours, so offenders can finally put a stop to their dangerous driving habits.
A change like this is uncomfortable or difficult for some, but the tools and ‘light bulb moments’ facilitated by Streetwise help offenders to overcome these psychological road blocks.
The purpose of attending a traffic offender program is to re-establish correct, appropriate and safe driving habits that align with community expectations and road law.
These laws exists to benefit everyone’s safety, therefore receiving an offence is an imperative red flag for change.
The Streetwise Traffic Offender Course takes a holistic view of a person’s driving life, their understanding of road law, road safety and an investigation into the neural pathways that set up their bad behaviours, to re-establish a seriously improved attitude towards driving habits.
This learning process must be extensive and thorough, and this is why Streetwise oppose large-group training.
The intention of an attendee should be to demonstrate to themselves, their family, their community and the Magistrate an acknowledgement of their offence and their commitment to change.
This can have a serious positive impact on the sentence given to a driver, and whether or not a conviction is recorded.
Magistrates are known to take into account the remedial actions of individuals when handing down penalties.
People who can demonstrate to the court they have taken action to correct an incident of poor judgement while driving may receive a lighter punishment.
Magistrates will often consider a deduction in your impending fine of our course costs.
