What to do if you are accused of Drink Driving

Advice about drink driving offences

Drivers can face charges for driving with excess alcohol in their system, or for failing to provide police with a specimen sample (breath, blood or urine) after being stopped, or for being unfit to drive through drug abuse or alcohol. While many cases of drink driving seem very black and white, there may be ways that you can challenge the evidence, and if not, our solicitors can aim to reduce the severity of the impact of charges.

  • We have successfully represented people with defences based on Faulty sampling equipment
  • Duress of circumstances – where someone was over the drink driving limit but genuinely needed to drive their vehicle to prevent harm to themselves or someone else
  • Breaches of the Road Traffic Act – if the proper procedures were not followed when samples were taken
