The legal issues related to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are serious and can have significant consequences for drivers.

However, accusations are not always justified, and everyone has the right to legal aid and protection.

It is for this reason that the law firm "Prikhodko and Partners" offers consultations on Article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses.

Article 130 of the Code of Criminal Procedure provides for responsibility for driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

This can lead to suspension of driver's license, large fines, and other administrative sanctions. However, many circumstances can affect the validity of the charge and the consequences for you.

When analyzing the protocol under Article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses (KUpAP), which concerns driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is important to pay attention to the following main points:

  • Description of the circumstances of the stop: A detailed description of the circumstances of the vehicle stop, including the time, place, and reason for the stop.
  • Determination of the identity of the driver: Check that the person driving the vehicle is correctly identified.
  • Results of the intoxication test: If a drug or alcohol test was performed, make sure that the results are recorded in the report.
  • Description of the driver's actions: It is important to describe the actions and behavior of the driver during the stop if they took place.
  • Driver explanation: Note any explanations or comments the driver may have made in the report.
  • Use of technical means of fixation: Check whether video cameras, breathalyzer, or other technical means of recording were used.
  • Legal basis of the accusation: Make sure the report states the legal basis for charging the driver.
  • Signatures and seals: Check the presence of necessary signatures of participants and seals of law enforcement agencies.
  • Circumstances of refusal to examine the state of intoxication (if necessary): If the driver refuses to be tested for intoxication, be sure to note this in the report.
  • Possible witnesses or evidence: Consider any witnesses or evidence that may support your version of events.

Compliance with these legal requirements and procedures is necessary to obtain complete information and a reliable defense in a court hearing.
