First you must be sure as to which drink related offence you face. As can be seen below, you do not necessarily need to have been driving, or have consumed alcohol, to face certain drink related motoring offences.
Please click on one of the following:-
Road Traffic Act 1988 S.5 (1) (a)
A person commits this offence if they drive, or attempt to drive, whilst over the drink drive limit.
Road Traffic Act 1988 S.5 (1) (b)
A person commits this offence if they have some control over a motor vehicle whilst being over the drink drive limit. Examples of this would be someone found asleep in their stationary car whilst over the limit, or someone who is drunk standing by their vehicle. To be guilty of this offence you therefore do not even have to be in the vehicle.
Road Traffic Act 1988 S.7 (6)
A person commits this offence if they fail to provide a specimen of breath, blood or urine at the police station when requested to do so. You may be found guilty of this offence even if it later transpires that you never actually drank alcohol or drove.
