The limit for drink driving is lower in Scotland than in the rest of the UK. In Scotland, you will be charged if your reading is over 22 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. There is a minimum mandatory ban of 12 months if you are convicted of this charge in addition to a fine and in some severe cases a prison sentence. Often the evidence is extremely technical and you may also have a complete defence. If you have had blood taken and contest the reading, you have the opportunity to conduct your own test only if you have requested a sample. This is time-sensitive and requires immediate action. If you have been charged, we strongly recommend that you contact our specialist Road Traffic Lawyers in Paisley for a free consultation at the earliest opportunity.
