Relevant Cases

D. P. P. -v- Freeman [2009] IEHC 179 (21 April 2009)

The High Court ruled that where the certificate produced by the Intoxilyser machine is signed first the driver and then by the Garda, the legislation was not followed and the District Court was correct to dismiss the prosecution for drink driving against the driver. MacMenamin J. accepted that the error was of a technical nature and that there was no prejudice to the driver, but he found the legislative provisions which set out the procedure to be penal in nature and therefore required strict interpretation.
