Drivers Believe Risk of Being Caught Drink Driving is Low

In a survey released yesterday over half (53 per cent) of drivers surveyed think there is a one in four chance of being caught and almost a third (31 per cent) think there is less than a one in ten chance.

Figures also show that in 2009 only 2% of drivers were given road side breath tests.

Does this mean that drivers are taking chances and driving when over the limit?

We rarely get clients who have deliberately driven whilst over the limit. The majority have miscalculated the amount they have had or have driven the following morning believing that they were under the limit.

Regardless of the circumstances a ban cannot be avoided for drink driving unless some very specific conditions apply.
