Drunk in charge of a vehicle

Being drunk and in charge of a motor vehicle can still result in a driving ban, even if you were not driving or intending to drive your vehicle.

Offences of this nature can affect your life in many ways. Many people have been caught out sleeping off excess alcohol in their vehicles, which has then resulted in them facing drunk in charge offences which can affect your life in many negative ways.
