Are there any special reasons for drink driving?
There are certain circumstances when the explanation for driving may not be sufficiently compelling as to provide a full defence. It is still possible to avoid a driving ban for drink driving if, however, a person has a special reason.
This can include the case where a person is over the limit because their drinks have been spiked. They are technically guilty of drink driving because they drove whilst over the limit but the reason for being over the drink drive limit was not their fault. Clearly a person must not be aware or suspect that there drinks have been spiked. At Trafficlawyer4u we deal with a very large number of cases of this nature with a very high degree of success. See our Drink Driving Spiked Drink case study.
Another commonly used and successful special reason is if the person has driven the motorcar for a very short distance only. If a person is guilty of drink driving but has only moved the car a short distance, with a very good reason and in circumstances where there was limited possibility of danger to other road users then the Court may be persuaded to avoid a drink driving ban in such a case.
