My wife has just been charged with drink driving. It is her

This answer was rated:

My wife has just been charged with drink driving. It is her first offence. The breath reading was 67. She works part time as a free lance interior designer and has to travel to site meetings; public transport will be difficult for this. She also takes our 6 year son to school every day and to clubs and after school activities for all of which she uses a car not public transport. I work full time and cannot do this. Do you think there is any chance of getting the disqualification period reduced? What is the likely fine?

hello i can help you does you wife have any other points?

Many thanks for your help. To summarise, mandatory ban min 12 mths; bracket for 67 = 17 to 22. Fine 75-125% of weekly income. No special reasons. May get ban lower than 17 months on grounds of hardship. May be worth being represented.Very clear and helpful: thank you.

That is right.

All the best.
