Do I need representation by a Drink Driving Lawyer
Convictions in drink drive cases can and usually lead to a number of imposed penalties ranging from hefty fines to automatic disqualification from driving to a jail sentence depending on the reading and/or whether there are aggravating features such as the manner of driving , injury to persons and/or property or whether an accident was involved. Depending on the seriousness of the case, and your driving record, you can be sent to jail although most first time offenders will receive a monetary fine. For repeat offenders, you will likely be disqualified from driving for a certain period and the possibility of receiving a custodial sentence increase.
We recognise that a driving ban can mean that you are unable to work or lose your job, drop your children off at school and severely impact your daily life and activities not to mention the flow on affect to family members.
We don’t believe in people accepting their guilt for something they haven’t done just because it might seem easier at the time, and the consequences of any ban are so important that we can’t ignore the possibility of an argument to avoid the ban.
When am I guilty of drink driving?
If you are found to have been driving with a reading of more than 0.05 (for a full licence holder) in the breath you are above the legal limit. You will normally be asked to provide two samples of breath, one at the scene and another at the police station or mobile police breath testing unit.
