Drink drive accidents
The government has been publishing detailed reports on drink drive accidents since 1979. Over the years, there has been a significant downward trend in the number of incidents. However, that is not to say that drink drive accidents do not occur. In 2016, it was estimated that there were –
- 6,070 drink drive accidents
- 9,040 casualties caused by drink drive accidents
- 230 deaths caused by drink drive accidents
The figures show males are more likely to be involved in a drink drive accident than females.

I was charged with drink driving and my case looked hopeless. There was witness evidence and forensic evidence. From my first meeting with Abdul he reassured me that we could win the case. Abdul was fantastic and the end result is that I am a happy man as I have kept my driving licence and my job. Scott McDonald.
I was initially somewhat sceptical about keeping my licence, I was stopped for Drink Driving and the costs were high, but the result was excellent, and the money was certainly well spent. I would not hesitate to use DFR again. Michael A.
I had never been in court previously, and the prospect was terrifying. I was stopped for Drink Driving, and was looking at a significant disqualification. The result in the circumstances was unbelievable, the solicitor was excellent in presenting my case and explaining the extenuating circumstances. I was overjoyed with the final result.NM
