Drink and Drug Driving Offences and Failing to Provide a Specimen
Drink or drug driving offences, such as driving over the prescribed limit or being in charge of a motor vehicle while over the prescribed limit, can have devastating consequences for a person’s family and career, particularly because a conviction will almost certainly result in a disqualification.
Challenging a charge of drink/drug driving is not easy and it may often involve very technical examination of the facts and law. It may be necessary to instruct an expert to provide an opinion on the use of equipment such as the intoximeter or to test a comparator blood sample that was taken at the police station.
Sentencing for the above offences includes a range of disqualification, fine, community work orders and imprisonment.
