Driving While Under Influence of Alcohol
Cyprus’s Road Safety Act clearly defines the crime of drunk driving as:
“Driving or attempting to drive a motor vehicle on a road or other public place after consuming so much alcohol that the proportion of it in a person’s breath exceeds the prescribed limit.”
For a case to be made against you, the investigation has to link you with the offence of passing the threshold of alcohol levels. The boundary is set at 22 micrograms in 100ml breath.
The authorities use breathalyzers, which are apparatuses for checking alcohol levels. Even if the device has flagged you, it doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Each sample is case-dependent, and your particular circumstances will further question the validity of the scan readings.
The authorities must follow strict protocols to obtain and ascertain accurate samples regardless of prior evidence. It is here that Efstathios C. Efstathiou LLC will provide legal cover for you and prevent your license from being cancelled.

Pleading Guilty to Drunk Driving
Before confessing the crime, you must understand the sentences and punishments for drunk driving. The punishment is decided after analyzing the reports, and other supporting evidence is considered.
Factors that can lessen a punishment if a person has decided to seek help with alcohol addiction. It shows that a person has remorse and is willing to get better. The Courts grant leniency in this case. If the drunk driving has resulted in accidental death or significant property damage, then damages to the aggrieved party are levied.
Aftereffects of Drunk Driving Sentence
