Being that there is no precise definition of being in charge of a vehicle, it can often mean that the lines are blurred when someone is facing a charge for drink, drug or unfit whilst in charge of a vehicle.
As it stands, a person remains in charge of their vehicle until they have handed over control to another person, such as physically handing over the keys. It has to be obvious that they had no intention of controlling the vehicle whilst under any influence, whether it be drink, drugs or any other influence.
If you’re facing a drink, drug or unfit whilst in charge of a vehicle charge, you must show the court that there was no likelihood that you were looking to drive. Whilst it may be difficult to prove, certain factors will be taken into consideration such as:
· Where were the keys?
· Was anyone else present who was going to drive instead?
· Where were you sitting in the vehicle?
· Where were you in relation to the vehicle?
· Was the engine running?
The court will also look at any evidence that suggests that you had any intention of driving, so it’s important to hire a motoring law barrister that you can trust in.
