Customer Question

Hi, after a party I was forced at knife point to drive my vehicle, I was then chased out of the vehicle when stopped at a red light. I returned to the car after escaping the man, I then got in the car to try to escape the area incase the man returned again, I was then arrested virtually straight away for drink driving. How can I avoid a drink drive ban from this situation?

Why did you return to the car after this person had chased you away?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just because it was my car really, I was terrorfied for my life and was not thinking clearly due to the encounter. I was also assaulted by the man and his brother at the party before he forced me into the vehicle, police have visual proof of the assault and the bruises I was left with. the path I was chased away was in a circle pattern and when I could no longer see the man chasing me, my instincts just led me back to the car.
