Drink Driving Evidence Information

In most prosecutions for Drink Driving, the driver will be the subject of a roadside breath test. If this proves positive he will be taken to the police station to provide a further breath test. The machine used to obtain this sample is usually a Lion Intoximeter and once again to achieve a conviction for drink driving, the police must obey strict rules.

In certain circumstances, for example, if a person is medically not able to blow into the Lion Intoximeter, the police may proceed to take a sample of blood or urine. Again if this is to be used in a prosecution for drink driving, the police must strictly adhere to fixed procedures and if they do not, a court may refuse to convict a person of the offence of drink driving.

If a police officer suspects a person is guilty of drink driving and the driver cannot provide a breath sample, the decision to take a blood or urine sample is the officers, unless there are medical reasons for not providing blood.

However where a driver taken to the police station on suspicion of drink driving provides a breath test and the lower reading on the breathalyser does not exceed 50mgs of alcohol, the driver has the option to have it replaced by a specimen of blood or urine.

To give yourself the best chance of success you should instruct a specialist Drink Driving Solicitor who specialises in defending these types of cases.

Careless Driving

The careless driving offence actually has a very wide definition.  The driver does not have to be driving a motor vehicle but any mechanically propelled vehicle and the careless driving offence can take place not only on public roads but any other place to which the public has access.  As dedicated traffic lawyers we will not shy away from questioning, exposing and exploiting any weakness in a prosecution case against any of our clients who face an allegation of careless driving.

Driving Bans

Wherever, following a conviction under the Road Traffic Act, there is a penalty of an obligatory endorsement of penalty points or an obligatory disqualification we may be able to avoid this for you, if we can establish ‘special reasons’.

The law has very clearly stated what amounts to ‘special reasons’ and this often causes confusion in the mind of the lay person.  We advise that you contact us as soon as you are aware of a prosecution in order that the issue of ‘special reasons’ can be discussed.
In order to establish ‘special reasons’ for not endorsing a licence or not disqualifying it will usually be essential to call evidence to satisfy the court of this.

Failing to Identify Driver

The Road Traffic Act imposes a strict duty upon defendants to disclose the identity of drivers in these situations.  If you face a prosecution for failure to disclose the identity of the driver, you should contact us immediately.  We recommend that you speak to us prior to signing any documents and you should do this as soon as you receive them.
Just because the law seems onerous and puts strict duties upon people, do not assume that there are no defences to failure to disclose the identity of the driver of a motor vehicle.  There are, and success may well depend upon the speed with which you act when you are prosecuted.  Contact us immediately.

Failure to Stop

In a prosecution for failure to stop we advise that you contact us immediately.  There is a strict duty upon motorists to stop and provide information, to people who reasonably request it, after an accident involving damage to property or injury to a person.
 
It is important to note that you can be guilty of failure to stop even if the accident is no fault of yours.
 
As with lot of road traffic offences, failing to stop is widely defined.  It does not have to involve a motor vehicle as the Act refers to mechanically propelled vehicle.  The definition of ‘accident’ tends to be regarded in a common sense way.  Any ‘injury’ to a person does not have to be physical injury and can even include nervous shock.

Refusing Roadside Breath Test

You can only be convicted of failing to cooperate with a preliminary test if you do so without ‘reasonable excuse.’  Such an offence can cover several situations where a person has not cooperated with a preliminary test, but usually relate to a defendant being physically or mentally incapable of providing it or to so would entail a substantial risk to his health.  The inability to cooperate with a preliminary test, if caused by drink or drugs will not be a defence. If you face prosecution for this traffic offence you need a specialist drink drive lawyer to best represent your interests.

Speeding Ticket

Do not assume that photographic or police evidence cannot be challenged. It can. If you believe that any evidence is wrong, you should contact us immediately.  To secure a conviction, the court has to be sure as to the accuracy of any evidence, that you were speeding. If this evidence fails to meet the required standards, we will argue before the court that there should be no conviction. If the court agrees with the argument you may well avoid a driving ban.
