Independant Blood Sample Analysis - Drink Driving

#1
Hi there,

I was pulled over on Thursday morning (idiotically using my phone) at 9am and gave a reading of 40. Was breatherlised in the station at 10am and blew 51 and 47. Had a blood test done at 11.40am and when I left the station at 12.15pm I asked them to check me again to see if I was safe to drive home and I blew 23.

I am desperately worried and keep being advised to get my own sample checked independantly. The only problem is, I can't find anyone to do it for me!

Can any one help me?

Thanks
Anna

Hi Anna,

The Royal Society of Chemistry provide information on the RTA Procedure a list of road traffic act analysts who can analyse blood or urine samples and attend court as expert witnesses if need be.

Hope this helps.

I was also just marginaly over at 42, and was offered and accepted a blood test. I aslo took a sample and they supplied a leaflet of where I could get my sample tested. I sent my sample in and it cos £120, I got the result back within a week. My result was 78 and the legal limit is 80, I am now wondering if that means I am in the clear?

This is similar to what happened to me however the police applied a back calculation to cover the time between when I was arrested and the time of the blood test. They eventually dropped the case as we disputed the figure they had used in the back calculations but I had to have an expert report and expert court appearance fee which was expensive.

I have just received a call from the arresting PC and the official result came back at 73, so my bail has been cancelled and no further action is being taken.

So I would advise anyone to take the option of a blood test if offered, but probably the best piece of advice is not to drink any alchol and drive. It has certainly frightened the life out of me.
