drink driving!

It wasn't me BTW,

Asking for a friend really,

Anyone know how many points you can expect for getting done at 64mg within the first 2 years?

I'm kinda thinking this is gonna come back as "it depends on the Judge/Court/Driver", but just wondering as a guideline for him...

Cheers,

Carl.

Re: drink driving!

I thought drink driving was always an instant ban? Might be wrong though.

Re: drink driving!

Instant ban! Due to the fact hes lost his licence in the first two years he'll have to retake his test aswell! and his insurance will cost a fortune too!
Not harsh enough either in my opinion!

64 is way past the prescribed limit, and would lead to instant charge, as for sentence, as far as i know, it's always lead to an instant ban

Re: drink driving!

indeed


I thought it was always a ban, not something that they give you a slap on the wrist for and tell you to carry on driving.

With all the extra pressure to be careful in the first two years of getting a licence and your mate does that? No excuse, and the roads will be a safer place with them banned. I hope the judge throws the book at them...

(Sorry to be judgemental, but a good friend lost his best mate because of a drunk driver )

Re: drink driving!

I know someone who protested his innocence when they got banned for it, saying as it was slightly over the limit they should have got points.

However that persons attitude changed quite quickly when some pissed up fool planted a mondeo into his parked sierra at about 40mph a number of years later. (and indeed this was back in 1999).

After this he claimed all drink drivers should go to jail. What a loser

Re: drink driving!

sound like he was lucky to be only charged with drink drive, peverting the course of justice would have really done him over a treat.

Re: drink driving!

I thought it's now a possible jail sentence?

Also... slightly off topic, but.... They also want driving whilst using a phone to be punished by imprisonment.
