I am a lawyer and for the first time I found myself facing an interview under caution for driving without due care and attention. I phoned Auriga in response to their offer of a free consultation. I had my doubts about the quality of advice I might get in a free consultation but in the event there was no justification for my scepticism. The woman I spoke to (Andrea) listened very carefully to everything I had to say, asked relevant and incisive questions, challenged what I said where appropriate, and made valuable suggestions for the way in which I was to handle the interview. She explored the possibilities of a resolution which would avoid prosecution. I was highly impressed by the level of attention, knowledge, care and the thoroughness with which she advised me. As someone who is used to giving legal advice myself, I could not fault her.
Best of all, it is now five weeks since the incident. I was told I would be contacted within a couple of weeks or so if the police were to take the matter further. I was undoubtedly guilty of driving without due care and attention. I don’t want to tempt providence, but it very much looks as if I may not even be required to attend a driving course.
