Learn about: Drink Driving

It is an offence in Australia for a person to drive a vehicle over the prescribed limit of 0.05 if a person is holding a full licence, whilst the legal limit is 0.00 for holders of learners’ and probationary licences. Drink driving is an offence which is treated seriously in Australia and the penalties can range from the suspension of your licence to jail if you’re found operating a vehicle while over the limit. Needless to say, the consequences of having either your licence suspended or imprisonment can have a drastic effect on your job, family and yourself personally.

Additionally, it is also an offence for a person to be operating a vehicle while having drugs in their system and the police can request a breath or blood test if the police believe you are driving under the influence of drugs. If illicit substances are found in your system, it can potentially result in a conviction that may have a serious impact on your personal and professional life. Therefore, if you are in trouble and need legal assistance because of drink or drug driving, you can use the FindLaw Directory to get in touch with a lawyer anywhere in Australia who will be able to help with your matter.
