Advice on drink driving offenses

  • Drivers can face charges for driving with excess alcohol in their body, or failing to provide police with blood or urine sample after being stopped, or for being unfit to drive through drug abuse or alcohol.
  • Every drink driving case is different. Some are on black site of the board, and other is on the white side. There are all kinds of legal clauses that our solicitors can use to reduce the severity of the impact of charges.

We at Caddick Davies have represented people with defenses 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
