Drink and Drug Driving
There are two types of drink and drug driving offences with which you can be charged.
Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
- Driving with the prescribed concentration of alcohol present or drugs present
If charged with either of these offences you should obtain legal advice as soon as possible to determine:
Are you at risk of imprisonment if found guilty?
- Whether you have a defence available to you,
- What the cost would be to defend a charge of drink driving, and
- If found guilty what the minimum period of disqualification is.
It is particularly important to obtain legal advice if you have prior convictions for drink driving or prior convictions for drive while suspended or disqualified. The risk of imprisonment often increases with relevant prior convictions.
It is expected the penalty provisions for drink driving will be amended with even harsher consequences.
