Expert Drink Driving Legal Representation

There are defences to drink driving. To give yourself the best chance of success you should instruct a specialist drink driving solicitor or a lawyer who specialises in defending traffic offences. For example a person should not be convicted of drink driving where the driver proves that he consumed alcohol before he provided the specimens and after the time of the alleged offence and that had he not done so, the proportion of alcohol in his breath, blood or urine would have exceeded the prescribed limit. Clearly defences to drink driving involve technical legal argument and specialist preparation is involved. In any such situation, you should contact us immediately, in order that we can, if necessary, obtain expert, scientific evidence to help establish your innocence.

FAQ - 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.

Case Study - Drink Driving Offence

Mr C was stopped whilst driving as part of a routine traffic stop. The police officer spoke to him and formed the opinion that he had been driving under the influence of alcohol. At the request of the police office, Mr C was asked to submit a roadside breath test sample for analysis, which he failed. He was arrested, charged with drink driving and taken back to the police station to provide an official breath test sample which would be used as evidence in court.

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.

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.
