I came across Andrea via the Website, and after reading the testimonials I decided to make an appointment with Andrea. From that very first meeting I found Andrea very knowledgeable and professional in her field. Andrea is also a caring, friendly and compassionate person, always at the end of the telephone if I had any questions or queries.
Drug Driving Solicitors
If you are facing a drug driving charge you will be extremely worried about the consequences as there is a mandatory disqualification of a minimum of 12 months. You do not need to worry we are here to help you every step of the way
The only way the police could prosecute motorists for drug driving offences up until the new legislation brought in 2 March 2016 was for an offence of driving whilst unfit.
The police had to prove impairment which they rarely could so it was seldom prosecuted.
However, in March 2016, new legislation was brought in with prescribed limits for drugs, if you are over these limits then you will be prosecuted for driving over the prescribed limits for drugs in the same way as excess alcohol limits.
This includes not only prohibited drugs such as cannabis, heroin and cocaine but also medicinal drugs properly prescribed.
Similar offences of being in charge of a vehicle under influence of drugs/failing to provide specimens as in excess alcohol cases.
The police no longer have to show any impairment and there has been an wave of prosecutions for drug driving offences as forces bring in drug driving campaigns.
More than 400 a month arrested for drug driving since new laws introduced: 50% of motorists stopped are testing positive
