Expert Solicitors. On Your Side.

What to do When Caught Drink Driving

A conviction for drink driving has very serious consequences in all aspects of life. It can lead to people losing their job if they are unable to travel to work, it can cause a huge strain on family life and it will considerably impact the cost of insurance.

Bray& Bray’s expert team of solicitors can defend you against charges of drink driving, minimising the impact they have on your life. In many cases it is not possible for a licence to be saved, but our legal knowledge and experience means we have the skills to negotiate fines and other sentencing imposed by the courts.

If you have been charged with drink driving and need expert legal advice on how best to proceed, call Bray & Bray now on 0116 254 8871.

Advice about drink driving offences

Drivers can face charges for driving with excess alcohol in their system, for failing to provide police with a specimen sample (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 are all kinds of legal clauses that our solicitors can use to reduce the severity of the impact of charges.

We have represented people with defences including:

  • Faulty specimen 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
