Drink-Driving Case Dropped

Kept Licence
Edinburgh Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court

Our client was discovered riding a Vespa around the streets of Edinburgh in the wee, small hours of the morning.

She was accused of careless driving, driving without insurance, and driving without a valid licence.

The police detected a smell of alcohol and she failed a breathalyser. The reading was only 28ug (the limit is 22ug) at the police station.

Our Mr Simpson attended at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on 25th August 2022 and had a discussion with the Procurator Fiscal.

The Crown was persuaded that it did not require to proceed with the drink-driving charge.

A plea-in-mitigation was delivered to the Sheriff and our client's licence was endorsed with 6 penalty points and she was also fined £640.

A most favourable outcome.

 Kept Licence!
