Special Reasons

Every case is different and sometimes, although a defence is not available, there may be an opportunity to argue that a special reason exists. A special reason is a unique or unusual fact or factor in the commission of the offence.  It does not amount to a defence.

The most common special reasons arguments are:

  1. An emergency situation
  2. Shortness of distance driven
  3. Spiked or laced drinks with regard to drink driving cases

The Court will listen carefully to the arguments put forward and apply a high standard in order to make a decision. The Court will want to know all the details of the incident and any factor which contributed to the offence being  committing.
