Can I go to prison for an offence of driving with excess alcohol?

The magistrates Court does have the power to send people to prison for drink driving.  This power is rarely used although can be imposed if a person has large number of previous convictions for drink driving, the reading is exceptionally high or there has been an accident where serious injury or damage has been caused.  Please note that at Trafficlawyer4u we deal a large number of extremely serious drink driving cases on a regular basis. 

Whilst one can never guarantee the outcome of  case, at Trafficlawyer4u we have the necessary experience and skill to do everything possible to avoid a custodial sentence no matter how serious the case.
