WHAT IS DRINK DRIVING?

You are liable to be charged with drink driving if police find you have driven, or even attempted to drive, with more than 35 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of breath, or 80 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood, in your body.

If found guilty, punishments can include:

  • A six month prison sentence
  • A £5,000 fine
  • Disqualification from driving
  • 3 - 11 points on the driving licence for 10 years
  • Requirement to sit another, extended driving test

These are severe punishments, but an expert drink driving law solicitor can help other, less strict, penalties to be given to the accused.

WHEN CAN POLICE STOP DRIVERS FOR BREATH TESTS?

Quite simply, any time! In the eyes of the law, a police officer can request a breath test from anybody who is driving a vehicle on a road or in a public place if they have a reasonable cause to do so.
