Drink Driving Penalty, Breath Reading 76, Am I High Risk?
Thank you for your post. There is a range of penalty here and what you receive depends on a number of factors, including the Sheriff presiding over the case and the quality of mitigatory representations advanced on your behalf. Therefore, I would say that you could expect a disqualification of anything between 9 and 24 months.
Clearly, if you wish our assistance here I and my colleagues would be more than happy to help.
As your breath reading is below the threshold of 87.5 microgrammes, nothwithstanding Scotland's lower drink driving limit I do not consider that you would be classed as a High Risk Offender.
Thank you for your reply. It has put my mind at rest about a few things. I take 87.5 is the threshold in scotland then or is it different? Also do you think I'll likely do community service? Sorry for the added questions.
