If a motorists has been proven to be drinking under the influence the details will be evidenced by a certificate of analysis or statement. The next step is for the police to issue a verdict, deciding what punishment will reflect the severity of the case. Being in charge of a motor vehicle with excess alcohol is a great risk for the driver, other motorists as well as pedestrians and surrounding properties, with all sense of awareness and reaction going out of the window. If you have a DR40 against your name then we understand you may be pretty worried when searching the market for insurance.
