Driving Whilst Unfit Legal Representation

The specialist drink driving offences solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler have the necessary experience and expertise to help you if you have been accused of being drunk in charge of a vehicle.

Lanyon Bowdler was one of the pioneers of flexible pricing options, and we offer fixed fees and service level guarantees to ensure that expert legal advice is available to everyone.

The Difference Between Drunk in Charge and Drink Driving

The main difference is that someone accused of being in charge of a vehicle while drunk (DR50), does not actually have to be driving. A classic example of this is when the defendant is found sat in a car, with the keys in the ignition, and they are over the limit.

The prosecution will argue that although they weren’t driving at the time, the defendant was intending to drive at some point while under the influence.

Possible punishments include:

  • Disqualification
  • 10 points on your licence
  • A prison sentence

So it’s important to get the help of a specialist drunk in charge of a vehicle defence solicitor as soon as you can to start building a strong defence case. This will significantly reduce the chances of you being prosecuted.
