Drink Driving Penalty

You may assume or have been told that defending a drink driving blood test case is futile and be resigned to accepting the charge and all of the consequences that follow. Whether you risk the loss of your livelihood, home or freedom, we urge you not to give up as we are likely to have the solution to resolve the nightmare you face. As you will see from our results, our offering to secure the contrary position is something we urge you to seriously consider.

Whilst no litigation can ever be certain, our involvement in a drink driving blood test cases has led to extremely high success rates. By success, we mean not guilty verdict. That means no disqualification; no fine; no criminal record!

YearOur Results
2012This was the first year we began to track our results depending on the type of sample the police had taken.We had a total of 33 blood cases conclude in 2012. They comprised of 32 Magisrates’ Court cases and 1 Appeal case in the Crown Court.We won 33 out of 33 achieving a 100% success rate.8 cases were discontinued before the trial date itself. 25 were won at court.
2013Having published our phenomenal successes of the previous year, we saw a significant increase in the number of clients who chose to defend the blood drink driving charge they faced.We had a total of 56 blood drink driving cases conclude in 2013.We won 52 out of 56 and lost 4 trials. This equated to a 93% success rate.10 were discontinued before the trial itself and 42 were won at court.
2014We dealt with a total of 43 blood drink driving cases that were concluded.We won a total of 40 of these cases and lost 3 cases. Again this equates to a 92% success rate.We have seen an increase in the number of cases that were discontinued before trial as 14 of the successfully defended cases were dropped before the trial date.
2015We defended a total of 31 blood drink and drug driving cases that were concluded. We won 100% of these cases so that all 31 clients were found NOT GUILTY.  7 of our cases were discontinued before the trial itself, 9 cases were withdrawn on the day of trial before the case got underway and 15 clients were acquitted after the prosecution had presented their case but we had achieved so much damage by that point that the cases were thrown out. Only 1 case had to be fought via a full trial with our client giving evidence.
2016The law changes of 2015 resulted in a massive decline in blood drink driving cases in 2016. However, the introduction of the drug driving offence in 2015 also resulted in a significant increase in drug drive charges that we were entrusted to defend. We defended a total of 40 cases involving a blood sample. This comprised of 28 blood drug driving cases and 12 blood drink driving cases that were concluded. We won 100% of the drink driving cases and lost 1 drug driving trial so that 39 clients were found NOT GUILTY. 7 of our cases were discontinued before the trial itself, 27 cases were withdrawn on the day of trial before the case got underway and 3 clients were acquitted after the prosecution had presented their case but we had achieved so much damage by that point that the cases were thrown out. Only 2 cases had to be fought via a full trial with our client giving evidence.

Hopefully, our results demonstrate how our expert involvement in your own case is highly likely to result in your being found NOT GUILTY.

What is the UK blood alcohol limit?

The UK blood alcohol limit is 80mg in 100ml of blood. This is one of the highest blood alcohol legal limits in Europe with both Scotland and Ireland reducing the blood alcohol limits to 50mg to fall in line with the rest of Europe in recent years.

Drink Driving Blood Test Scenarios

There are a number of scenarios where you will be requested or offered the opportunity to provide a blood sample to the police following a drink-driving arrest.

  • You are unable to provide a breath sample because of medical reasons;
  • There is no breath testing machine available at the police station;
  • The breath test machine was faulty or the results inconclusive; or
  • You were taken to a hospital rather than a police station.

Typically it takes the police around six weeks to have the drink driving blood sample analysed. If the result is more than 80 mg then you will face a charge. Unlike the position with the breath reading which is slightly over the limit and the police have some discretion to release without charge, there is no such discretion with a blood sample that is marginally over the drink drive limit.

Once charged you will be bailed to attend court for the first court hearing where you will be expected to enter your plea of guilty or not guilty.

Most people who instruct us to represent them in drink driving blood test cases do so before they are charged pursuant to our standby instruction option. Whilst it can be tempting to wait and see whether you will be charged, we find that by placing your instructions with us at this early stage, we believe this gives our client the best chances of securing a not guilty verdict at a later date.

No two drink-driving case strategies will be the same because every case is different. However, Geoffrey Miller Solicitors have developed a cascade of successful defence strategies unique to the firm. Drink driving blood sample cases are our speciality. If your licence and record are important to you we urge you to get in touch and let us advise on how we believe we can achieve the right result for you.

†Figures include successful appeals and exclude cases lost that are the subject of appeal as at 21 December 2017.
