Do i get an answer of what to do? Iv jus paid £38
Ok. Well if you are asking can you be arrested the answer is yes. They have up to 6 months to arrest and charge you for drink driving. They would have to show that you were or attempting to drive a car whilst under the influence.
So you could be arrested when you go and pick it up. Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
