All About Care & Control Charge Defence You Need To Know
If you have been charged with care and control, you can rest confident that Criminal Defence Connect is here to assist you. The legal term for the individual accountable in an incident involving intoxicated driving is “care and control.” Impaired driving occurs when a person is intoxicated or compromised by alcohol or drugs to the point where they are unable to drive or operate a vehicle with normal awareness.
Driving while inebriated poses a substantial risk to individuals, even if the driver does not commit any physical damage while in a vehicle, and numerous cases have resulted in property damage, car wrecks, and civilian deaths. When it comes to Care and Control, this means that the accused was in charge of the vehicle’s operation. In many situations, the accused was attempting to drive a vehicle while inebriated on purpose.
Penalties Of This Charge
Because they are linked to allegations of driving while intoxicated, any crimes involving care and control are subject to the same penalties. Those who are found guilty in court will have their license suspended for a year. It’s also likely that they’ll face a heavy fine or maybe a prison sentence. Those who have been found guilty in court may be required to attend obligatory training and driver’s education seminars on safe driving techniques. A license suspension can be prolonged if this is a second offense within ten years of the first. If the person is convicted of three or more offenses, he or she will be barred from driving for the rest of their life. The driver may be obliged to utilize an ignition interlock device even after being suspended. This device is a breathalyzer that is mounted to the vehicle and only allows the driver to drive if there is no alcohol in their blood.
