A CD70 is a penalty issued to a driver that causes death by careless driving then fails to supply a specimen for alcohol analysis. When being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol you are tested for your alcohol levels twice, once at the side of the road then again at the police station. If you refuse to provide a specimen then that is an offence in itself, resulting in police action having to be taken. If you have caused a death and refuse to cooperate then that is a serious event that police do not take lightly. This type of conviction can result in anything from 3-11 points on your driving license with the common outcome being an instant ban as well as a large fine. It is not uncommon for such drivers to be sentenced for failing to provide a specimen, serving time in prison to put right their actions. Many insurers refuse to cover drivers with a CD70 on their record, seeing them as too much of a risk following their ban. At High Gear we always try to take the fairest approach, helping convicted drivers where we can, helping them on their way back to a clean license.
