About Us

We act for motorists, LGV & PCV drivers and operators, taxi drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists… basically all road users in respect of road related legal problems. We strongly believe in road safety and do not recommend or condone the breaking of road traffic laws. Neither do we campaign against speed limits or speed limit enforcement and do not advocate speeding. However, we are only too aware of people who are pursued for offences they did not commit. Often there is no prosecution evidence but sometimes it is too easy to bully relatively safe drivers for minor offending.We are here to represent and advise the Private and Commercial Motorist. We have a very long standing association with the road and freight industry and act for operators of large numbers of goods vehicles, as well as bus, coach and ferry operators.

‘Keepmeontheroad’ is the collective name for the Road Transport Law & Motorist Defence team at Rothera Sharp Solicitors.

Rothera Sharp is a law firm based in Nottingham which has specialised in servicing the legal requirements of the Road Transport industry for well over half a century. With our clear understanding of the day-to-day problems affecting Transport Operators and Professional Drivers we are best placed to help you and give competent and professional advice on issues such as obtaining and preserving an Operator’s Licence, defence of prosecutions, representation at Public Inquiry, conditions of carriage, and contractual disputes. We are members of and panel solicitors for both of the major trade associations – the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and the Freight Transport Association (FTA).

Rothera Sharp solicitors manage hundreds of cases annually on behalf of large and small operators and their drivers, and provide a nationwide service. We also act for a large number of international operators and drivers, being members of the International Road Transport Union’s Legal Assistance Network

In addition to advising those involved with national haulage and passenger operations, Rothera Sharp can provide legal advice to those operating vehicles within specialised sectors of the transport industry, such as abnormal loads, international traffic, livestock haulage and waste transport.

We also represent hundreds of motorists annually and specialise in Motorist Defence, having a clear understanding of Road Traffic Law. We act for drivers facing prosecution for speeding, careless and dangerous driving, alcohol related offences etc., and we have appeared in almost all Magistrates’ Courts in England & Wales over recent years.

Road Traffic & Transport Law is wide ranging, complex and often confusing, but with our contacts in the industry, our links with the major trade associations, our countrywide network of agents and our heritage, we are well placed to advise on almost any problem likely to be encountered by vehicle operators, professional drivers, and private motorists.
