If you’ve been charged with drink driving, then you’re probably wondering how to face the future. The penalties can be harsh, and you may lose your license or your freedom. Even after you have paid your fines the consequences continue into the future. Your employment might be compromised, and then there’s the loss of reputation if word gets out.
Having drink driving solicitors by your side can make all the difference
If you’ve been arrested, it’s critical that you get good legal advice right away so that you know your rights and options. It could make all the difference. We provide representation in Magistrates Courts and Police Stations all across the area.
Fighting a drink driving charge is complex. Our experienced location drink driving solicitors will thoroughly investigate your case and determine how to get the best result for you. There are many possible defences, for example:
- Was there a problem with the breath testing device?
- Are the blood or urine test results valid and admissible?
- Did the police office follow correct procedure?
- Was the car being driven in a public place?
- Was the alcohol consumed after the driving took place?
Hiring experienced location drink driving solicitors may help you to get your license back, avoid a conviction on your record and avoid prison time.
Do I have to provide a specimen?
The breathalyser test alone is not enough to convict you for drink driving. If it indicates that you’ve over the limit then the police will conduct a further test. If you refuse this test then you can be charged with Failure to Provide a Specimen. The penalties for this are roughly the same as for drink driving.
