How can we help you?
Being charged with a driving offence is not the same as
actually having committed the offence – mistakes do happen, and equipment can
malfunction. A charge of Drink Driving or Speeding may be a false accusation
and actually due to equipment failure or even operator error, so we always
begin each case with an investigation into whether you have really committed a
driving offence at all. If we can establish that the accusation is a false one
or there has been some irregularity with the equipment, the Crown Prosecution
Service may decide not to proceed with the prosecution.
Having established that the equipment (for example a speed
camera or breath test meter) is reliable, our next step is to investigate the way
the procedure was carried out. There is provision within the law for us to
insist that the prosecution prove their case, and if it turns out that the
police or prosecuting authority have made fundamental errors, the case can be
thrown out of court.
As you can see, we go through every aspect of every case in
tremendous detail, but if the worst happens and the court is considering
awarding penalty points or a driving ban, be assured that we will always be on
hand to ensure the result is fair.
