Do You Know when You Are Over The Limit?
Lets all be honest, many people find themselves in a position where they have had just a couple of drinks, they are now unsure whether or not it is safe to drive or not. For example after a business lunch or just a 'quick drink after work'. The uncertainty of the situation can make for an anxious drive home that could risk your licence and therefore livelihood.

The Morning After
In most recent years the early morning breath tests have become commonplace on the nation's roads. Motorists innocently driving to work after having consumed alcohol the previous evening can still find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Whilst they may feel perfectly safe to drive, they are unaware that the amount of alcohol remaining in their system is enough to produce a positive reading.

The Penalties
The chart below gives the rough guidelines for penalties given for first time offenders. Please note that these are only approximate guidelines based on our informed understanding of the 'going rates' in the year 2016. Penalties for goods vehicles, large passenger vehicles or commercial vehicles would be higher. We would advise anyone facing prosecution to seek professional legal guidance.

Why Risk It!

What are the consequences of failing a roadside breath test.

  • Instantly stopped from continuing your journey and taken to the police station for blood test
  • The shame of being labelled a drunk driver by friends and neighbours
  • Would you be able to continue in your job?
  • The increased insurance cost when you get your licence back
  • How would the loss of mobility effect your families daily life?
This is without considering the consequences should you have an accident and cause harm to yourself and others should your reflexes and concentration not be as good as you thought they were.
