Drink Driving Penalty

If you were arrested for drink driving before 10 April 2015 but you provided a borderline breath test (anything below 51µg in breath), the police had to offer the option of replacing your breath test with a blood or urine test. In drink driving borderline cases the police can choose which of these methods are used. This option was referred to as “The Statutory Option” and was originally introduced in the 1980’s when evidential breath testing devices were relatively new and their accuracy was questionable.

On 10 April 2015 the statutory option was discontinued as the government considers the evidential breath testing equipment to be reliable enough to do away with this additional safeguard. However, the team at Geoffrey Miller Solicitors have encountered hundreds of case that would suggest reliability of breathalyser machines is a major issue, particularly in borderline drink driving cases.

Managing Director, Jeanette Miller is seen on the video below discussing the government’s proposed changes to drink driving laws to close the “drink driving loopholes” they consider to be allowing too many drivers avoid prosecution. This was before the changes to the laws were implemented. 
Check out the video below or read Jeanette Miller’s thoughts on the change in borderline drink driving laws in this drink driving blog.

Even though the law has changed in relation to borderline drink driving readings, our team of drink driving solicitors remain confident of successfully defending drink driving charges of all types. Borderline reading cases are far less complex than some higher reading cases and of course, they carry different risks and concerns for our clients.

However, even when a client’s drink driving reading is borderline, unless the charge is defended, it carries a drink drive ban of a minimum of 12 months for a first time offender and a 3 year ban for a repeat offender.

If your arrest predated the 10 April 2015 changes or you provided a second type of sample for any reason, then you should note that Geoffrey Miller Solicitors have developed unique case strategies in relation to blood and urine drink driving cases that have resulted in the success rates outlined in our Business Data pages.

If you opted to provide one of these secondary tests, you may find that once the sample has been analysed, the result is below the legal limit. DO NOT WAIT for the result to come through before speaking to us. Getting in touch with us now can make a huge difference to the eventual outcome of the case. Check out Andy’s story to see how glad he was that he got in touch and trusted our advice even though it conflicted with many other solicitors he spoke with.

I have not been charged yet – When should I instruct you?

If you want to give yourself the maximum chance of staying on the road and avoiding conviction, even if you have been told there may be no charge, we would suggest you speak to us now. Many of the details we need to know to formulate drink driving defence strategies are likely to be long forgotten if you wait until the date you are due to go to the police station.

In drink driving cases, proof of being the driver can sometimes be questionable. However, the defences we use are rarely as straight forward as this kind of factual argument and we would always recommend that you engage experts to represent you if you are serious about saving your licence and record from conviction.

Figures include successful appeals and exclude cases lost that are the subject of appeal as at 30 June 2016.

Not Sure What to Do About Your Drink Driving Borderline Case?
