Drink Driving Caused by a Spiked Drink
As always, Mr B drove his car to the train station and caught the train to work. That day he went for some drinks with his colleagues after work. He knew he would have to drive home after he got off the train, so he only drank two pints of beer, to ensure he was under the limit when he got behind the wheel.
Later Mr B took the train back to his car and began his drive home. Unbeknownst to him, his colleagues had spiked his drink with shots of liquor. He was stopped by police and asked to submit a roadside breath test sample for analysis, which he failed and was subsequently charged with drink driving.
Further enquiries revealed that his work colleagues had spiked his drink. Mr B contacted Trafficlawyer4u solicitors and he was advised that he had a special reason to avoid a driving disqualification. Following a special reasons hearing the court held that there was a adequate reason for non disqualification. Mr B avoided a driving ban and no further penalty was imposed.
