Drink Driving | The Morning After | Kangs Motoring Offences Solicitors

Share

Many people responsibly use public transport or taxis to travel home following a party or social gathering at which they consumed alcohol.

However, what they, albeit frequently innocently, do not appreciate is the lurking hidden danger, which Sukhdip Randhawa of Kangs Solicitors now addresses.

The Hidden Danger | Kangs Motoring Offences Advisory Team

  • It is still not adequately understood by many people that they can very easily remain over the drink drive limit the morning after the consumption of alcohol.
  • The police increase the right to randomly stop motorists around the Christmas and New Year period resulting in the number of people facing prosecution being sharply increased.
  • The prescribed legal limit, remains at 35micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath or 80 milligrames in 100 millilitres of blood.
  • This limit has varying effects on individuals and is so low that there is only one sensible option: Do not drive if you are going to drink any amount of alcohol.

The Consequences | Kangs Motoring Offences Defence Team

  • There are no mitigating factors preventing the loss of a driving licence.
  • A conviction for drink driving carries a mandatory driving ban of a minimum twelve months period (which can be reduced by up to 25% by participation in a drink awareness programme).
  • The sentence can be accompanied by a fine and even imprisonment.
