It's ok as far as I'm aware. She would have given a reading at the station instead I expect.

 

Al, I think what disco is asking is more to do with "is it OK for an officer on his own to take an unaccompanied female in his police car", rather than as you suspect, "is it OK to fail to provide a breath test and do another at the station".

 

As far as I know you can refuse to even stop for an unmarked police car unless and until you have reached a populated area to feel safe, particularly if you are a lone female. I have heard it recommended that if an unmarked police car flashes you to stop, you should ring the police yourself to validate that the police car is official.

It is perfectly acceptable for the officer to transport the person in custody alone if necessary.

 

Good practice would suggest that two officers would be better than one, but with the technology in most police vehicles such as GPS tracking, ambient listening (if required) etc it's really down to the individual officer.

 

If they had to wait for another officer in the case of a Drink drive it could work in your favour or against you. Your alcohol level could be going down, or then again it could still be on the way up.

 

No legal issues with the officer transporting alone though.

This is on the police advice website, it is what the police themselves advise.

The O.P said the policeman was in his patrol car - not sure where all this 'unmarked police car' has come from.

 

It was a comment I added which seemed appropriate to the topic of "can a person (particularly female) feel safe with a lone policeman". Although not the issue in this case, I thought it may be similar useful information that many people may not be aware of.

 

Sorry you felt it was inappropriate electron99. Would you like me to delete it?
