Court for driving while intoxicated (Article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses) – the cost of appealing a fine for driving while intoxicated

Reading time: 3 min.

Responsibility for driving a vehicle while intoxicated

Driving a car while intoxicated is a serious offense from the point of view of the law, which entails deprivation of the right to drive a vehicle, large fines from 17 thousand hryvnias, and sometimes even confiscation of the car.

Article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses provides punishment for driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Appealing a fine for drunk driving is an important step to protect your rights and interests. However, before proceeding with an appeal, it is important to understand all aspects of the process, including possible risks and features.

Participation of a lawyer in the case

One of the main costs when appealing a fine is legal aid. The price for a lawyer's services can vary significantly depending on various factors, such as the level of experience and qualifications of the lawyer, the complexity of the case, the volume of work, and other circumstances.

Taking into account the judicial practice, which is publicly available in the register of court decisions, cases under Article 130 are closed by judges in favor of persons facing administrative responsibility six times more often if a lawyer participates in the case.

In addition, it is important to take into account possible additional costs associated with conducting additional examinations, costs of going to court, and other costs related to the consideration of the case.

A lawyer in administrative offense cases has additional opportunities to protect the client's rights and interests. A lawyer can request additional documents from the police or a hospital through a lawyer's request, initiate the summons of police officers to court, and challenge the judge in case of doubts about her impartiality to the case.

How to successfully defend your rights in court?

To successfully challenge the protocol, it is necessary to understand the following:

  • Whether an examination for the state of alcohol intoxication was carried out in compliance with the relevant procedure by the police and the report of the examination was filled out following the established norms;
  • Was a report on an administrative offense made in compliance with all legal requirements;
  • Were the two witnesses involved by the police during the preparation of the report;
  • Whether a certified breathalyzer was used by the requirements.

It should be noted that although you are not limited in the right to prove your innocence on your own, it will be very difficult for a person without special education and relevant experience in this category of cases to defend himself on his own.

Therefore, it is better to contact a lawyer specialized in cases under Article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on administrative offenses to obtain a decision in your favor.
