Drink Driving Contrary to section 5 Road Traffic Act 1988

My client was convicted of drink driving by ‘pushing’ his broken down vehicle (it was accepted that he had only returned to his car after a night out drinking to push it off double yellow lines into a parking bay further up the street). He, however, successfully argued special reasons (distance pushed) for not receiving the mandatory ban of at least 12 months. He, instead, received 9 penalty points and therefore could carry on driving despite being twice over the legal limit to be in charge of a car.
