Special Reasons not to Disqualify

For more serious motoring offences like drink/driving a guilty verdict brings with it the possibility of a disqualification from driving for a period of months.

Experienced motoring lawyers like Julian Harris can put forward your case that there may be a special reason not to disqualify. That the court must take this into consideration when deciding whether to disqualify or the length of the disqualification period.

There may be mitigating circumstances such as a third party ‘spiking’ your drink without your knowledge and causing you to fail an intoximeter test or an emergency where you had no alternative but to drive a child or other relative to hospital. Magistrates must take into account the circumstances that, through no fault on the drivers part, put he or she on the wrong side of the law.
